Why do I LOVE road trips to Orlando? I'm a New Orleans girl but my heart is always in Walt Disney World! Flying can be costly for my family of five so in order to visit the mouse a couple times a year , we road trip! I pack snacks galore, charge the iPads and bring some dvd's for our car tv. My kids actually prefer driving for vacation because there can be such hastle at the airports with flight delays, waiting to board the plane and so on. Hey, sometimes its quicker to drive! We can move at our own pace and leave at our leisure. We typically leave around 6 a.m. while the kids are still sleepy , so that's about three hours of silence. We typically break after about 5 hours to eat lunch , stretch our legs and use the restroom. After another five hours, we are entering the MAGIC! We may have another bath room break in between lunch and arriving in Orlando but it's ten minutes tops at an interstate rest area! We are pulling up at our Disney resort around 5 p.m.! Its perfect because our room is ready to go when we arrive. We usually just unpack then head over to the food court for dinner. That night we take it easy, maybe swim at the pool or enjoy a Movie Under The Stars (most resorts have a movie night) . Our last trip , we stayed at the Yacht Club so we walked over to the Boardwalk for pizza and did a cute bike ride around the resorts. Another reason I love staying at some of the deluxe Disney properties, you can walk to other resorts or even parks for just a couple hours of fun! We like to hit the hay early on the first night so that we can wake up early the next morning and go to Magic Kingdom early . We always do our first full day in Magic Kingdom, it's our tradition but all the parks are SUPER fun. If you have a Disney budget for a family of four or more, use that money saved from driving on a deluxe hotel. I love a nice long week in Disney , with chill time at the resorts. Some of my favorite memories are swimming at the pool and playing all sorts of games and let me tell you the pools at the deluxe resorts are incredible . I give it 5 stars for road trips !!!!
