A clear winner among families of all ages are Disney resorts and cruises. Theme parks and hotels offer world class accommodations, dining, and entertainment, while the Disney Cruise Line offers a number of exciting destinations including the Bahamas, Norway, Alaska, British Isles, and more!
Not all European destinations are family-friendly, but there are a number which provide a multitude of activities and advantages for those at every stage of life.

More adventurous travelers will enjoy zip lining, hiking, horseback riding, walking across a suspension bridge, visiting the base of an active volcano, snorkeling with tropical fish, or taking surf lessons.
Travel Tips & Considerations When Traveling with Children or the Elderly
- Plan to be together. Involve all parties in the planning process from youngest to oldest. Once the dates and destination have been decided ask each family member to contribute one item they wish to see or do so that each person is invested in the vacation, and the burden of an enjoyable vacation doesn’t fall on one individual.
- Be flexible. Understand that not every family member will want or be able to participate in every activity. Make a list of alternative activities so those who opt out won’t be left with nothing to do.
- Know your limitations. Consider diet, health, age, and activity restrictions when planning activities. For example, most tours have a minimum age requirement, and elderly family members may find it hard to stand in long lines commonly found at most theme parks.
- Divide and conquer. Don’t expect to spend every waking minute together. Parents may enjoy a dinner out alone while grandparents babysit, a child may enjoy one on one time with a parent, and grandparents may like the day to themselves while adults and children are off exploring.
- Expect the unexpected. Plan ahead for unexpected illnesses, travel delays, lost luggage, inclement weather, or homesickness.
- Trust the experts. The dedicated travel experts at WorldTravelService® can answer all your questions, and provide you with valuable tips and insights to help make the most of your family or multi-generational vacation.
