  • [Question] This will be a problem....What would you do?

    My Fiance doesn't wake up early. And we only have 2.5 days in the park for our honeymoon- and of course, I fully want to utilize all the early hours, as we are staying at the Grand Californian with a 3 Day Park Hopper. However...I don't want to wake my husband (Eeeep!!) up- as I imagine he would get quite cranky quickly.

    So I'm thinking of a couple of options...
    #1- Head to the park early solo- soak in as much Disney as I could before going back to the hotel to figure out breakfast plans with my husband.

    #2- Stay in the lobby of the Grand Californian and read a newly purchased book on Disneyland until the husband is ready to get up.

    And I guess there is always the

    #3- Stay in bed and go nuts with desire to be in the park.

    I'm struggling...because I know I would go BATTY having to stay in the hotel room when I knew I could be in Disneyland....It would just make me miserable and crazy! But...I also have this feeling that you really need to do stuff together on your Honeymoon. (And yes...of course I will discuss this with FI as well) But am I missing any other options? Does anyone think "Yes- it's your honeymoon. Be a big girl and stay in bed!"?

    Or am I just crazy? (Because I think I already knew that part).

      IPresume- that wasn't at all offensive or hurtful at all....nope, not one bit. No need to apologize.

      I know that my FI really isn't going to care either way. It's just figuring out what I'm okay with. LOL. Besides- he is a first timer, so I don't want to Disneyland him out. But he might surprise me and decide he wants to wake up early to miss some of the lines at RSR.

      And it's not so much that I'm interested in what would be the "right" decision...as it is wanting to know what other people would do if they were in my shoes.

        Sounds a bit similar to my honeymoon in Walt Disney World. My wife would rather sleep in, I want to be at the parks at rope drop. Well, I often went in early, and met her later in the morning. I really did relish the solo time. It also gave me a chance to "preview" certain attractions and see if they were to her liking.
        In later years, we've had compromises, such as I'm darn sure that she gets her cup of coffee as we go in, or we go in earlier than she'd like, but later than I'd like.
        Of course, you are more limited on time than we were, so if I were you, I'd go in early by myself. I think it also sends a good message for the marriage that you can both do things your way at times, and one of you does not have to be dominant over the other. There are ways for you to both get your way.
        Remember, just because it's your honeymoon, it doesn't mean you have to be joined at the hip 24-7. Some solo time is great now and then.

          LOL. This reminds me of why my FI said we couldn't get married at the Ren Faire, because they actually tie your hands together for the day...and FI said it would just drive him crazy, because I'm constantly wandering off and looking at shiny, bright or moving things. :shy:

                My buddy that I travel a lot to the park with is also a late sleeper. I too like to sleep in, but wake up much earlier than he does...who like your new husband gets cranky if waken up too early...When staying at the GCH I typically will wake up, head down to Jamba Juice, wander around DTD, or CA Adventure staying relatively close to the GCH. When he pops up, he shoots me a text then I head back towards the room. By time he hits the shower and gets ready, I am back at the room and we are off for the day.

                New relationships are all about compromise. If you are roaring to go, but wanna let your partner sleep...I would see no problem heading out first thing in AM then meet back in the room once he is ready...that way, you are both on your own pace in the AM with no frustrations over expectations not being met...win win.

                Now if that was another hotel where you might have to meet up somewhere, not sure that I would like that if roles were reversed, but the close proximity is one of the advantages of staying at the GCH!

                  I would smack him with a frying pan to get him going. Go Rapunzel on him!

                    Talk to him first. Let him know that it would be important for you to be a the parks early. This obviously is a big deal to you and he, as your husband, should want you to be happy. You would love it if he could be with you in the morning, but you could go alone too. If I were him, I'd grab a Starbucks as sleep is for the people outside the Haunted Mason.

                      I'm a late sleeper too but, when it's Disney time, I can't sleep anyway... and I'm up at the butt crack of dawn getting ready! I say go to bed early so you can get up early. I'm not paying all that money to sleep in.... time to have fun! LOL.

                        He can go nap in the room during the day if he gets tired, I'd think seeing you so excited would rub off on him and he'd be happy to be up with you. I mean it's not like a Honeymoon happens that often (unless you're elizabeth taylor)

                          Is it going to be your last time at Disneyland? Enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon.

                            Find a truck stop, purchase some speed, slip it into his drink on the first day. He'll stay up all three days. Win/win.

                              Sincey you are going to be there for a few days, I would try to compromise. Sleep in with him one of the days and have him get up early with you on another. Compromise is what marriage is about.

                                A truck stop? Heck there's places within a mile of Disneyland itself where you can find that stuff, if not more.

                                  Heck, some people would have you believe you can find that stuff in the parks. :lol:

                                    Luckily, my fiance gets up early and I'm usually the late sleeper, but when I know we are going to Disneyland, I up by 6am haha. He keeps bugging me to go while I'm getting ready and I have to assure him the park isn't open yet. However, we are going for a week for our honeymoon and since it will be 5 days vs. our usual 2, I think we may sleep in a few times and head over in the afternoon. I would just talk to him about it. Who knows, he may surprise you and be so excited, he'll be ready before you!

                                      I'm with this one. He has a choice:

                                      1) Sleep in
                                      2) Go to Disneyland

                                      You're not going to find a populace of people at this forum who understand choice #1 very much, myself included. He has the vast majority of his life to sleep in and he wants to do this NOW? HERE?! His inner child doesn't know what he's missing.

                                      Going alone would make me feel alone if in your position. It would make me doubt if I'm in the right relationship but that's just me. In your case I can only hope you have a way to motivate him. Whatever the case, it's a honeymoon and not worth stirring up an argument over but I really wish he'd see how important this is to you.
