often, family vacations can be hard. Saying in small hotels, dealing with all of your luggage, finding things to do that don’t cost a fortune, and getting the entire clan from place to place… all of this can become taxing and challenging. So, we have assembled the following tips and advice to help you make your Orlando vacation less chaotic and more relaxing.
It’s the quintessential trip for a young family, almost a writ of passage. For us, it was one of those things before we had kids that we’d sworn we’d never do. Kind of like our plans to feed our child an organic unprocessed diet, provide her with only educational toys, and of course, no screen time. But here we were, driving down to Florida, our child staring at her tablet and munching on a fruit bar as we headed down I-95 to the happiest place on earth.
Yes, it’s true. Disney World can be done on a tight budget. Luckily for us, we live within driving distance of Orlando. It’s a long drive, granted, but doable for us. We realize not everyone is geographically close, but driving may be a lot cheaper than flying. Depending on the size of your family and your willingness to spend the night at a cheap hotel along the way, you could save hundreds if not over a thousand dollars by driving. Cheap hotel rooms can be found all along the interstate, and the price of gas for a few days is probably cheaper than a plane ticket.
