Thanks Uncle Sam!
We were planning to go to Hawaii the first week of August for our family vacation but airfare for a family of 5 is on the expensive side these days, especially since the cheapest airfare I can find is around $600-800 (multiply by 5!!!) Instead of Hawaii, we 're going to blow our stimulus check on a family vacation to Disneyland. We booked our trip through Southwest Vacations and opted to stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. We were debating whether to splurge on the Grand CA hotel or save a little money and stay off site with a larger room/suite. Thanks Jenn & Joyce for the advice - as you can see I took it - we went for convenience and the overall "Disney" experience that I'm sure the kids will appreciate. We're excited - this will be our first time staying at the Grand CA hotel and we didn't tell the kids anything about this planned trip. We're going the day after school gets out (June 19-22) and we're just going to pack up the family and take our flight, and we're never going to tell the kids where we're going, they'll just have to figure it out themselves. We didn't rent a car, still debating whether we need one since our plan is to stay onsite the entire time. If anyone has any travel tips for Disneyland please feel free to comment or email me.
