We are going to Walt Disney World in 2 weeks with DS who will be 14 months.
The flight will be 3 hours, we will be flying Southwest Airlines.
We will be staying in a resort on property and will not use the car seat at all during the trip.
Originally when I booked the flights I did not buy a seat for him. DH has decided that he thinks we should and did go ahead and book him a flight. It is refundable if we decide we don't want to use it.
Typically he is pretty good in his car seat as long as the car is moving and/or someone is sitting next to him. Usually on long car rides he even falls asleep. I don't know what this will be like on the plane, though.
The cost is 560 dollars. It doesn't break our bank but I'm pretty frugal and this whole trip is expensive.
I don't know. I've been wondering if we should or shouldn't do it and what sold me on not getting it was 1) the price, 2) the hassle involved in figuring out getting him a boarding pass (which DH has taken over figuring out so I'm fine with that part), 3) the fact that we don't need the car seat for the rest of the trip.
DH is considering safety and having to hold DS for 3 hours, which I agree is going to be very unpredictable and probably kind of difficult.
