“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” Walt Disney
Theme Parks are great family destinations. There are many to choose from around the world. To name just a few there’s Disneyland in California and Paris, Disney World in Florida; Universal Studios in Hollywood, Orlando, and Japan; Legoland in Denmark, California, Florida, Germany, Malaysia, Dubai, and Japan; and Ferrari World in Dubai.
These parks incorporate themed world class resorts that have something for kids and adults. The parks are filled with kiddie rides and shows to keep toddlers and young kids entertained and action packed thrill rides for the more adventurous folks. After a fun filled day at the parks you can relax at the world class resort next door, many of them have activities for kids so that the parents can enjoy cocktails by the pool or a date night on the town.

Suggested family activities and tips:
Take advantage of the extra hour in the morning to gain admission to the Disney Parks before they open. This allows you to get in a ride or two before the crowds pour in. (This is available to guests of the Disney hotels)
Grab a FASTPASS to one of the popular rides as soon as you enter the park.
Consider booking a Club room at the Disney Hotels – Club rooms come with breakfast, all day snacks & non-alcoholic drinks, and evening cocktails. As an added bonus you may pack snacks and drinks from the club lounge to take into the Disney Parks (outside food other than snacks from the lounges are not allowed in the parks)
Look for the hidden Mickeys – they’re scattered throughout the parks and in the Disney Hotels.
Check out hotel activities such as Character meet & greets, movie night, and more.
“We believed in our idea – a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.” Walt Disney
Why Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel?
Sooner or later everyone ends up at a Disney Resort, with or without kids in tow. It’s the happiest place on earth! I’ve been going to Disneyland in California since I was 7 years old, and was at Disney World in Orlando, Florida the first month they opened their gates.
We’ve taken our kids numerous times to both resorts, and now take the grandkids too. We’ve seen many changes, specially the last few years, both resorts have gotten so much bigger much more expensive.
We’ve stayed in hotels both on and off Disney property; both have their pros and cons. From past experience I’ve pretty much decided that staying at a Disney Resort Hotel far out weighs staying at a nearby hotel.
