I am leaving in 10 days for a spontaneous road trip to Florida and back with my 6 year old in tow. It will just be him and I, a little mommy son bonding.
My dad always talked about his family vacations to almost all of the states as a child. We were never able to do that, but I am hoping to start for my family on this trip. I have been down to FL once before on a road trip w/ my husband about 5 years ago, but we went alone and did not have kid activities in mind. We are leaving on a Wed. afternoon, checking into the hotel no earlier than 4 on Thursday, doing disney on Friday, and check out by 11 on Saturday, have to be home to Mich. by Sun night for work/school on Mon.
I have never been to disney before and am planning to do just the Magic Kingdom for 1 day. I have found lots of information for that day and have a hotel booked in Lake Buena Vista for the night before and after. However, that is the only planned accomadation.
Most of my money is going to the tickets and the two nights of hotel.
I have already thought of getting "disney" souvenirs in advance, and have luckily found several shirts and hats that actually say walt disney world on them from Goodwill, along with some activity books, books on tape, and other "in the car" activities.
Now the issue lies with where else can we go? I don't want to just focus on the disney day, but enjoy the trip there and back. We will only have a day each way and not much time for adventures. Any grand ideas for a few hours that we would really remember?
