My wife's boss told her that she had two choices, the company paying for either...

-your family (the two of us and our 4 year old daughter) and Nana & Papa (my folks) to Disney land
-the two of you (my wife and I) go to Scotland

Either way, 5 days.
Now, I want to be selfish in this matter. Other than 3 years in Utah, and a couple weeks here and there I've never left the PNW. The only "out of country" experience I've had is a grand total of maybe 36 hours in Canada (and what a GRAND time most of those hours were.)
My wife, of course, has spent time in much of Europe.

I get how nice it would be for everyone to go to Disney, but I also feel like this is something that we could accomplish if we set our mind to it. I don't necessarily feel the same about leaving the country.

So.. what to choose...
Been to Disney Land. To be honest I don't really think she'd be old enough to really enjoy it, and most of the lines are too long. Since its in country and not as expensive as going out of country. That's not even counting plane tickets either to be honest.


What time of year for the Scotland trip? Their weather can generally be way worst then ours in the winter months.
Another thing you need to focus on when visiting Great Britain is those folks drive on the wrong side of the road.
The first time I stepped off a curb to cross a street after walking out of Victoria Station in London, I automatically looked left while I was reading the warning sign stenciled on the asphalt warning me to look right.
Just as I looked up and to the right, a bus nearly killed me. I flung myself back and badly twisted my ankle on the curb.
I hobbled across the busy street to a pub and was treated to a pint of Guinness by some onlookers who had all placed bets on whether I would get run over or not.
Seems I wasn't the first yank to make that mistake, especially after a 12 hour flight.
I've never been to either place. As a kid I felt shorted because Disneyland wasn't on our family's destination list.
Looking back as an adult, I don't feel I missed anything.

Scotland has so much history that I don't think I'd ever regret making the decision to bypass Disneyland.
