Why not spend a night or two in the cabin, and then go to Disney?

I am not a huge fan of Disney , and June in Orlando is HOT! But there are some really nice privateish resorts in Orlando too. I think you and your Fiance should talk and really think about what you would perfer. If it’s some quiet alone time the cabin sounds nice to me. good luck !

I’m not sure I understand.  His grandparents want to pay for your honeymoon, but not for the actual honeymoon you planned?  Just for some other random trip they think would be nice? 

Its actually really nice of them to offer to help out, but if helping out means that you don’t get the honeymoon you want, that bites.  I get the feeling that for some reason its not an option to let them know what you actually want, and have them pay for that?  Because if they really want to pay for "your honeymoon" as opposed to "their idea of what your honeymoon should be," that is what they would do.

Although, you don’t sound as if you would hate Disney.  So a compromise position might be to have yourself a little mini-moon (long weekend away at the cabin) and let them buy you the Disney trip, but schedule it a few months later – when the weather would be nicer, and when doing touristy stuff might sound a little more appealing.  We are actually waiting 6 months for our full-blown 10 days away fabulous honeymoon, because of time, money, and weather.  But we are having three days away right after the wedding, just the two of us, in a little romantic place where we can be alone.

When we planned our honeymoon we wanted, hot, beachy, all-inclusive and adults only.  We ended up making plans for punta cana in the dominican republic.  For flight from newark, with taxes and transfers, honeymoon suite $2300.  And if we didn’t want adult only we could have spent as little as $1400.  And that includes all food and booze!!   Disney for a week including food would cost at least as much.

 Just something to think about. Sometimes you think something like that might be out range, but sometimes isn’t as expensive as you might think.

You could do Disneyland instead, which would be much cooler at that time of year.  And like Florida, there are lots of other attractions in the area (Universal Studios, etc).
