Involving Your Children in Vacation Plans

We are Disney fanatics who are lucky enough to live close to Disney World so we can go quite often. We also are Disney Vacation Club owners so it makes it even easier to vacation there or at Disneys Vero Beach Resort. But after going there every year for two long trips and several short ones for the past 10 years even I want a change.

My daughter is very interested in weather. She watches our local forecast a few times a day and the national one at least once a day. She enjoys seeing the odd weather patterns, like tornadoes, hurricanes, and her all time favorite, snow storms.

Poor child who was born and raised in Florida has never seen snow. Shes been asking for a few years to go somewhere so she can see it for herself. I, my husband and her discussed traveling up to Niagra Falls, New York, NYC and other places where she can take part in new adventures and actually see and feel snow.

We used a map, the internet, and our DVC site to see what hotels we can stay at. Weve looked at catalogs and websites to find cold weather clothing. I had to explain to her what Icebreaker Clothing is. She helped with all of the planning so its become something to really look forward to. Shes also learning the cost of the trip, how long it will take to drive, geography and lots more. Were still planning as we wont be able to go until either the end of this year or the beginning of next year. Ill keep you posted as we continue this journey.
