IME, I would strongly urge trip to Hawaii... when little_1780 was 3 I felt like 3 across in E+ was every bit as good of an experience as F, as we were each on a side of him (IIRC this is not possible in F/J, unless you get the 4 across in the old J) And on a side note the other consideration would be that if you do go on an intl trip, your little one will need a passport, so don't forget the time ans expense of that (plus its only good for 5 years).
