Summer is here, and school gets out families start to take part in that time-honored tradition of taking a summer vacation! Many of these trips by road, air, and sea wind up at Walt Disney World, the most magical place on earth. And everyone knows that while traveling may not be the most fun experience, there’s bound to be some high jinks that come up when a family piled in a car, plane, or what have you for a long voyage.
As summer settles in, I’m curious: what goes down when your family takes a trip? Do you have any traveling traditions to pass the time? Any funny stories that are perhaps more memorable than the vacation itself? I’ll start us off:
My family is all about the WDW Must-Do channel in the resort TVs. It’s one of those things that really just tells you you’re there! So in the car, my sister takes reign of the video camera and pretends to be Stacey, pointing out to the loyal viewers at home all the Must-Dos that you just must do in the car on the way to Florida. She even pumps in her own theme music. It’s quite the to-do. Her doing the Must-Dos has become one of our Must-Dos!
How about you? What memories do you have of making the journey to WDW? Share in the comments below by Saturday, June 22 and check back in next Wednesday’s Finding Disney post to see if you’ve won a WDW Radio Mystery Ticket!!
