What should come first home improvement or vacation?

We have had our house on the market for 1yr and half and no offers. So we decided to get a home loan and do some home improvements and stay. We also have 3 girls 9,4 and 2 and I would love to take them to Disney. We can only do one financially and I am having a hard time deciding. Please help what would be the best thing? Thanks

    Honestly I’d make the home improvements before going on vacation. The home improvements gives your family a sound place to live and be safe for as long as you decide to keep the house. A vacation will only last for a few days to a week, and you may not have a safe, sound home to come back to when it’s over. You can always take the Disney vacation in a few years once the 2 year old is a little older to enjoy and remember the event. You also won’t have to be lugging around any diaper bag or stroller when they’re older. Take them to a small amusement park near home for now and take the big vacation later when your finances are in better shape. Enjoy!!!!

    The home improvement will benefit you for years. The vacation will benefit your girls for a week. I’d go for the home improvement.

    Personally, I would do the home renovation. I think that’s awesome to take your kids on a probably much needed vaca, but other than your 9 year old, they’re not going to remember it 🙁 So, maybe plan a neat disney themed birthday party once your house is done, or a disney themed party just because. The kids will love it, and you can hope to save some money to go in a couple years maybe?
