Summer is here and that means lots of families are hitting the road to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. Road trips should be part of the vacation and they can be. Sure you could just turn on a movie or two on your car's DVD player or a tablet, but that can turn into a lot of screen time! We are so excited to share some of our favorite road trip games - including a new toy that you can win and some of our favorite free printables. These ideas will keep your kids engaged and your family involved the whole way to your family's vacation destination.
Favorite Road Trip Games

Why we love it: Our Would You Rather Games are themed towards our most popular Southern California attractions and will get you excited about your destination long before you arrive.
