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 #6758 10:57PM
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 #129 2:06PM
Fly or drive from where? I would say if it longer than two days drive your kids might get restless. - Disneymba  39.3 #4628 2:07PM
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  546.2 #9 2:23PM
I agree with there you would be driving or flying from? Also flying is much more expensive.  - ncjal  201.0 #33 2:29PM
Is a train out of the question? - Lelundrial  439.6 #417 3:00PM
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 #81 5:54PM
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  164.5 #44 5:57PM
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  798.4 #3 8:08PM
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  1017.1 #139 11:09AM
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  340.6 #600 11:17AM
