My 12 yr old son has been Diagnosed with a “mood disorder” Which he is being treated with by Abilify. He also has ADHD. My question is when he goes to his grandma’s every other weekend he Often forgets to take his Abilify those two days. Yes we have tried to remind him but it turns out to be a real struggle. My question is the fact he “misses” those doses every other weekend is it really a big deal?

Are you in the USA? We tend not to medicate younger people here that much (UK), but I am no expert and you are about your son. I wouldn't have thought that missing two days is that terrible. Some will still be in his blood stream after all. What sort of mood disorder has he been diagnosed with?
