My youngest guy recently asked me when we were headed back to Disney. As I started to answer he clarified his question. He wanted to know when we could go back to Disney on an airplane where they served us dinner and a yummy treat. I giggled a little bit when I realized he meant, when are we flying first class again. The answer is not anytime soon.
We travel more by sticking to inexpensive airfare and moderately priced hotels. Traveling is more important to me than taking one epic expensive vacation every few years but after our experience earlier this year, I want to upgrade some aspect of our vacation every year or two.
Six months ago we took an epic family adventure to Orlando with my dad, brother, and sister-in-law in tow. It was epic because my dad was celebrating his retirement and splurged by choosing to use lots of airline points to fly everyone there in first class. My husband and I’ve been lucky enough to snag an upgrade occasionally over the years. So it wasn’t a new experience for us, although still very appreciated. Our kids thought it was absolutely amazing. Flying with lots of extra space to play chess, take a nap or conspire while playing iPads is a luxury that you won’t find back in coach. They also loved the extra attention from flight attendants bringing food, drinks, and treats throughout the flight. Normally they are stuck with whatever granola bar I’ve thrown into my carryon bag.
We won’t likely fly in first class again soon but I know that experience will stay with my boys for a long time. In the meantime, we are busy planning another trip with Papa to San Francisco, traveling with grandpa seems to make vacations especially cool for the boys too. Maybe we can start a first class plane tickets jar, so we can splurge again in the next few years.
The point is making an effort to change up the norm, travel with extra family, splurge on an upgraded travel experience is worth the impression and memories they make. Do you ever splurge on travel experiences?
