Planning a Trip with Older TeensPlanning a Trip with Older Teens
March 11, 2015
Our trips have changed immensely since our first trip to the World, years ago when the girls were toddlers. Daughter #1 has just turned 20 (!) and at 17, Daughter #2 only has a few more months of being the "Child" on our Disney reservations. One of the things that I have realized is that it was during our trips in the tween and teen years when the girls really cemented their love of Disney. If you reach that point and your kids are still willing to drag themselves out of bed for park openings, you have done your job correctly. If not, no worries, a few adjustments, and you can maintain family harmony during your Disney vacations. Here are a few observations and tips, which might be helpful as you plan a trip with your not-so-little ones:
