Hello all. I give you a little background info 1st. I I live in Maine as do the kids I am talking about here. I am divorced with 2 kids with my ex wife. I have one 9 year old little girl and a 12 year old boy. I am ncp and ex is cp. The boy has adhd odd and is boarder line autism(when the doctors tested him they said the test showed him as having autism but could not say what type of autism he has). The divorced paperwork dose not cover out of state vacations. I am also remarried with a 9 year old step-son who has adhd and odd himself.
Me and my current wife want to take all 3 kids to Disney in FL next year with taxes. While my ex has no issues with me taking them we can't agree on a time to do it. My ex thinks it should be during the summer time when school is out. As the 12 year old has issue getting back into the swing of school after the week breaks that happen during the school year. I think it should be in the winter time when the parks are not going be as packed. Me and my current wife went a few years ago with just my stepson and we waiting in lines for up to 30 mins for one ride.(we had to take my stepson out of school for a week as I was unable to get a school break off form work to do the trip). I am worried that in the summer time we could face waiting times much longer then that. Also the heat gets to the 12 year old even here in Maine in the summer when we can hit 85-90 degree days sometimes it can get him going. I am worried bout taking him down to FL in summer where the temps could get much higher then that.
What I am looking for is any info form experts in the field that states what time of the year is best to take kids with the adhd/odd/autism to places like Disney and also any info other parents might have so that I can make this trip very special for the kids.
Thanks you all
