We got home last night after the 1380 mile drive home. Some things I learned from our trip with 5 grandchildren ages 2 to 10: The drive wasn't as bad as I imagined and in some ways easier than airplanes and renting a huge van. Driving the van to the parks was usually much faster than using the buses. With 5 children, it's absolutely wonderful, but also hard to plan a schedule, or to be at a certain place at a certain time, therefore not all our Fastpass Pluses were used. The magic bands were fabulous! Even the 2 year old kept his on all day. The Food and Wine festival is probably not great for children on a weekend, due to lots of adult behavior and language. (But I do want to go sometime with adults!) And last, there is nothing as touching as seeing WDW through children's eyes and how happy they are over every little thing!

So glad you made it home safe. Love seeing disney with little ones. Too bad mine are all teenagers. - PracticallyPerfectLisa  122.9 #3129 7:21AM
Someday you'll probably be a grandma, too.:) Teens are fun to go with, too! - ally  509.0 #17 7:25AM

Great report. Glad everyone got home safely. Glad every one had a great time time. - 5disneylovers  1143.5 #5 8:04AM
Ally so glad you got home safely. Totally agree about traveling with little ones in a car, we totally enjoyed it. It is all about timeing and being prepared. Seeing Disney through a child's eyes is amazing no matter what the age. The first time we went to Disney my kids were 17, 14, 11 and we were all in awe but totally enjoyed seeing it through their eyes and now it continues through my Grandkids so I know exactly how you feel-- truely blessed! - mmddgp  790.2 #8 10:08AM
