Disney Planning DVD

If you are planning on visiting a Disney park and would like an overview of what each park and resort have to offer, I would encourage you to send for a free Disney vacation planning DVD. They provide the highlights of each park and give a glimpse into the various themes of all of the Disney property resorts.

Even though we just took a Disney vacation within the past year, my kids still ask to watch the DVD. I think it brings back good memories of their trip and gets them excited to…

One of my favorite travel book collections is the Kids Love Travel series, which was written by a family traveling and discovering different travel destinations for kid-friendliness.

It can seem a bit overwhelming when trying to plan and decide what the best options are for the ages of your children and what everyone is interested in doing.

Why Travel with Kids

Not to mention if you have a baby or toddler and you might as well rent a trailer to haul everything you're going to need.
