Is this even a question? Just buy the Mayones and take the kids to a local cheaper amusement park.
Do the kids want to go to Disney in particular, or do you just want to take them somewhere cool? I'll second the consensus here that Disneyland is basically a giant machine designed to separate you from your money and you can do a LOT of cool .... elsewhere for the same amount of money. If they have their hearts set on Disney, though, then obviously do that.
New mayones. In case your family loves you,they will be happy about your joy. If not... then you shouldn't go to disneyland with people that doesn't like you.
Slight difference between Mayones and a budget Ibanez...
Does a Mayones pester you to buy a Donald Duck tshirt and make you wait in line for an hour?
Seriously though, I don't think you would be able to enjoy the guitar regardless if this (bringing family on holiday), of all things, is the opportunity cost. I would be forever cursed by the would-be photos that were never taken every time I struck a gnarly Dj0nt chrod with the Mayones.
Maybe for the future, try creating a "personal entertainment" fund, socking-away a little bit of cash every pay period to save up for something for yourself. Because otherwise, technically any time you have discretionary funds you could always think: "I could get something for myself or spend it on the kids", and if family-first is the rule, you're always going to guilt yourself into self-denial. Nobody wants that.
Anyway, if Disney is what the kids want, then fine. Personally, when I was a kid I enjoyed Hershey Park 10x more than Disney. And as others pointed-out, there's no dollar-value on meaningful experiences; I remember more about camping with my family, catching a minor league baseball game on a random summer night, or playing catch with my dad than going to Disney (all of which are equally remote).
My daughters love frozen and will sing let it go till the cows come home. And they love anything that involves princesses and castles...mickey etc so I guess Disney is the only option. Camping and going fishing with daddy just can't compare to Elsa and Olaf.
Get the Mayones and don't look back FTW! I'm joking of course! Family always comes first!
2 and a bit years years ago I would've said mayones all day
but my 2 year old has since made me soft as sh!t
Disneyland I hate to say
Doesn't matter...... budget ibby or mayones are no "world first problem"...... if you are looking for politic discussion you have a sub forum for that or way more appropriate sites than a guitar forum.
Having absolutely no intention to have kids (horrible noisy things) or a family of any description (I am not a people person) this thread has amused me greatly.
Family first, but I certainly wouldn't pick Disney anything for that. Like many others have said, take them outdoors. Hell if anything, a weekend of swimming/fishing/camping will be able to afford you your axe and that's not just a cheap alternative. I firmly believe you get a lot of more out of being outdoors than you do anywhere else. Don't even rent a cabin or anything, get some tents and sleeping bags, fishing poles, and a story book if you don't have an imagination.
IMO if you've got that much money burning a hole in your pocket, there's a ton of options for valuable family experiences. I'd say go take in some culture somewhere. Go visit a city or state or country or something you've all never seen before. Go do the tourist thing. Go see some concerts, or some art or something. Go eat some delicacies you can't pronounce. Camping's a good idea that's been mentioned already. What about a cruise?
If the Disney thing is reaaaaaaaaaaaaally what they want, then that's what they want I guess. But I think if money is an issue, you could get a more valuable experience out of that dollar with some research and some creativity.
Don't forget Legoland!!!
In fairness I'm not really sure about how you're supposed to pronounce "Mayones".
Choose Disneyland, money is gone, therefore GAS is gone (I guess?), lots of fun, no money, no guilt, no more problems!
The only way to find out for sure would be to phone them up...
Are you an active musician or just a "guitar couch collectioner"? Then the answer should be obvious. I don't even think active musicians have that many *expensive* guitars, unless they play in major bands, lol. The question itself is pathetic, no offense to the topic starter What kind of person asks questions like that? Get some therapy man or at least devote some time to meditatation
