    Your Family: Since you want this to be a relaxing and enjoyable time for your family make sure everyone gets plenty of rest. Don’t over schedule your itinerary or everyone will become exhausted. We have all seen children on family vacations having a complete melt down. It is mainly due to too much activity and not enough rest. Even parents can become exhausted. Make sure you schedule key activities so you can purchase tickets in advance and then let everything else just fall into place throughout the day.
