Hey Disers! Looking to take my famiy of 5, myself, my DH, our DD(10), our DS(6) and our DS(5) on a two week whirlwind roadtrip! So thought I'd put it out here and see how many helpful tips and thoughts I can get from all of you wonderful folks! Our starting point is Minneapolis, MN! Day after the kids get out of school. Here is our rough draft plans: *Thur. June 7th Head west to Keystone, SD and stay the night in a hotel *Fri. June 8th Mt. Rushmore and anything else we can get to that day stay one more night in the hotel in Keystone *Sat. June 9th head down to Beaver Creek, CO and stay with family. *Sun. June 10th visit in Beaver Creek, Co stay one last night. *Mon. June 11th Head towards the Grandparents in Gold Canyon, AZ on the way, if time works out, visit the Grand Canyon and drive through Sedona. Staying at the Grandparents that night. *Tues. June 12th Visit with the grandparents *Wed. June 13th Visit with the grandparents. The next part of our trip will be a surprise to our kids! *Thur. June 14th Head to San Diego, CA! There we will meet up with their Aunt and cousins! Hotel night. *Fri. June 15th San Diego. stay in hotel. *Sat. June 16th San Diego. stay last night in hotel. We plan on doing SD Zoo, Sea World and beach while there, not sure what days. *Sun. June 17th Head towards Anaheim. On our way stop and visit family in Newport Beach for a bit. Then get hotel near Disneyland. If we get there early enough go to a park or downtown disney? *Mon. June 18th D.L./C.A. and hotel *Tues. June 19th Universal back to hotel *Wed. June 20th D.L/C.A. and hotel *Thur. June 21st D.L./C.A. last night in hotel. *Fri. June 22nd Head towards MN, stop somewhere on the way- but where? Maybe back in Beaver Creek with family- if they are willing!! *Sat. June 23rd ALL the way back home! *Sun. June 24th and Sun. June 25th- Recover and relax before back to reality!!! I'm looking into buying the San Diego City Pass, which would be 3 day Disney park hopper tickets, 1 day Universal, 1 day San Diego Zoo and 1 day Sea World. Anyone else bought this? Was it worth it? Really a savings. This is the only reason we plan on going to Universal, other wise we were only going to do just the other parks. I also need some input on traffic, best times of the day to travel. Nothing is set in stone, yet! Since we first started planning this it has change a couple of times. Thanks in advance for any help! You guys rock!! This will be a lot of firsts for my family so my husband and I are really excited. Oh, also, is AAA worth the extra money? We feel like it might be a good idea since we are going to be on the road so much! Thanks!
