It's all about the Villains

That's a long straight drive. We did the full Anaheim to Dallas drive in 2019 and it nearly did me in. With 7 of us, flying is expensive but so is getting a rental anywhere too so it just hasn't made sense. I like how you embed your Disney vacation in a longer vacation - it probably makes it more relaxing and gives you a chance to catch your breath before coming home!
That's exactly why we do it. Besides, by leaving some of the stuff in Scottsdale, and only taking the bare necessities to CA, we can condense both suitcases worth of stuff into one, and if we decide, we can leave again at midnite to go to CA, and drive straight to DL parking garage and into the parks, before we even check in to our hotel in CA. We just leave it in the back of the car. And, it leaves more room for more purchases...lol....though I did go overboard this last trip. So much so, that we have to go to Cabela's to buy a cargo container for the top of the car (SUV). But it was good, we had been wanting one for a while anyway, so this gave us a valid reason to take the plunge.
We love shopping in old downtown Scottsdale, and relaxing at the pool....also, this last trip, we went to the theater to see Dr. Strange 2 on opening day. It was soooo relaxing to not be rushed.
