hey guys I have a question ..do you think it better to drive to California or fly .. were a family of 5 and my youngest never been on a plane.. were thinking of going to Disneyland next summer and seeing the other sites.. too!

Fly, it's part of the experience. And as much as I love Disney... If you're going to California go to Legoland, so cool for kids!! I know there's a new one in FL, but go to the original with the aquarium, super fun. - margustafson  16.6 #8142 7:57PM
Even though I don't like Legoland I will add that they also have a water park. They also added some new ride. - Lelundrial  658.7 #305 7:43AM
And an aquarium :o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #146 8:07AM
We drive most places because it's usually cheaper. We are a family of five also. The farthest we have drove is Colorado which is 24 hours for us. We always stop halfway and sleep but that takes away time from your vacation! We love to fly,it just so expensive these days. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #147 11:06AM
Fly or drive from where? I would say if it longer than two days drive your kids might get restless. - Disneymba  39.3 #5258 11:07AM
Oh sorry I forgot to say i live close to Orlando fl.. so It probably be a 4 day drive since we want to vist the grand canyon.. - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 1:42PM
Since you live in Florida it's probably better to drive, it's a 6 hour plane ride but it's better then a 4 day drive, your kids will probably be very bored after 6 or 8 hours. - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:24PM
It really depends on each family.  If your kids don't ride in the car well, flying might be better.  We drive so we can go to WDW more often, but it does take a while, we break it up into 2 - 1/2 days and 1 long day.  We could do 2 long days, but that's tiring.  - DizneyGirl  938.6 #8 11:23AM
I agree with there you would be driving or flying from? Also flying is much more expensive.  - ncjal  288.5 #28 11:29AM
*where not there... - ncjal  288.5 #28 11:30AM
Is a train out of the question? - Lelundrial  658.7 #305 12:00PM
I've checked 1250 each way plus it takes 3 days to get there . - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 1:46PM
That's nothing ;) - DizneyGirl  938.6 #8 2:02PM
It would only take you 3 days? Why in the heck does it always tell me 5 going cross country? - Lelundrial  658.7 #305 2:18PM
I might be wrong it might be longer on a train.. but bad thing u can stop and vist things along the way .. - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 2:54PM
I honestly think it's better to fly since it's faster. But I think it depends on your family. It's always fun doing road trips - lakerck  165.1 #55 2:57PM
Definitely fly! That's way too far to drive! I've driven (well, ridden) from Phoenix to Seattle and it was rough! I have family who take days-weeks to make that drive so they don't get too tired. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.8 #3 5:08PM
I also say fly. Less travel time and more vacation time! Definitely visit us here in San Diego! It's a great place! We have Sea World too! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #146 8:09AM
I prefer to fly if it is cross country. I look at it as paying for more time there. My husband and I both work so we have to take time off to go anywhere. I like to maximize our time having fun not driving. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #606 8:17AM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  148.0 #2741 3:57PM
@@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  173.2 #2352 5:02PM
