Whether it's a road trip plus camping or an itinerary in Europe, for those of us with school-aged kids, June, July and August offer the best chance to have a longer family holiday.

Disney is not just about theme parks! There are Disney Cruises, too (with great kids programs and nurseries on each ship), and "Adventures by Disney" guided tours around the globe.

The holiday season at the end of December is a peak time for family getaways, but the festivities start much earlier. In any country that celebrations Christmas, lights and decorations are up by the end of November and you're sure to find festivities.
