Recently, Walt Disney World released the results of its Disney Time Survey, a study by research firm Kelton that delved deeply into what vacation time means to families and how going on trips together strengthens the family bond.
Click the video toward the bottom of this page to hear from several families at the Magic Kingdom as they put a personal face on the results of this study. The figures showed just how little free time parents and children have to spend together and how going on family vacations gives a chance for uninterrupted quality time. The parents in the video back that up as they chat about just how fleeting childhood is and how much they cherish the opportunity to create lifetime memories together.
Walt Disney World is a particularly popular place for families to spend their precious vacation time because it packs so many different parks, rides, shows, attractions, and activities together at one resort. Fantasyland and the characters delight little kids, while tweens and teens gravitate to thrill rides, and parents enjoy revisiting old favorites they remember from their childhoods, as well as finding out what’s new.
Walt created Disneyland as a place where parents and children could enjoy themselves together, and that holds true at Walt Disney World, too, where most rides are suitable for a wide range of age groups and activities like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at Epcot, two interactive quest games.
Holiday parties are another great family bonding option. Don’t forget Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which have become holiday traditions for many vacationers. You might not be able to make childhood last forever, but you can set up trips that create forever memories.
