Family Vacation Planning Tool


Want to plan a trip, but not sure where to go? Use our Family Vacation Planner to determine which destination is best for your family. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: List Your Kids’ Ages
Select the appropriate age range (0-2, 3-6, 7-9, 10-12, or 13+) for each of your children in the drop-down menus; you can also simply select “Any.”

Step 2: Select Categories That Interest You
Interested in a relaxing, all-inclusive vacation? Select the “All-Inclusive” tab. Want to dip, twist, and turn your way through every roller coaster at a theme park? Select the “Theme Park” tab. Want to visit an all-inclusive resort AND a theme park? Select both tabs!

Step 3: Choose Your Travel Time
If you want to stay close to home, simply choose the “Driving Less Than 4 Hours” tab. If you’re up for a long-haul adventure, opt for “Flying More than 3 Hours” or “Doesn’t Matter.” The choice is yours — simply choose what’s best for your family and we’ll help you find a place that fits your needs. Be sure to enter your zip code for proper travel calculations.

Step 4: Choose a Region
If there’s a particular region you’re interested in visiting, simply choose it from the drop-down menu provided.

The Family Vacation Planner is available on our homepage — you’ll see it on the upper right-hand side; select Advanced Search to see the options listed above, or click on the image below.
