We have been fortunate to go on many of them. Mostly to the same place, a lot!
Disney World is a place we have been to many times. Sometimes twice a year. Not recently, but it has been known to happen.
We have been to Disneyland in California as well. Most recently to Vero Beach. Coming up though we have our first return Disney World since August of 2011.
Well, we plan way ahead.
The best way to visit Disney at a lower cost to you is to prepare ahead. One of the best things we ever did was purchase points in the Disney Vacation Club.
We pay monthly for this. Our payments will last approximately 10 years for 50 years of vacations. This is huge because we can stay at any Disney hotel on Disney property, and use our points. Each hotel has a different point value, but we get a vacation no matter where we stay!
We don't fly
We travel from Rhode Island to Florida by car. We drive our family to Florida and probably crazy, but we drive. As a child, my parents would take us cross country in the car. I learned to drive in a road trip.
So we drive. We pay for gas, and three meals on the road, and we get there at the cost of less than one plane ticket. And I love it because flying is horrible for me. The anxiety of packing to fit in a plane and not having an exit plan...too much! So we drive!
I know this was a detour from my assignment, but the last family vacation I took was not a pleasant one for reason I won't mention here. I pray that the one coming up will be something to write about! In fact I know it will!
So what is your favorite vacation?
And would you recommend it to others?
