Jump to last reply

We (husband, 9yr old son, adult daughter & sil) are flying into Dallas in mid November. We are traveling to Austin to visit other daughter who is studying at UT. We plan to spend Thanksgiving in Austin & then take everyone to Memphis, then down to NOLA where the 3 older passengers will catch planes to elsewhere. Husband, son & I will then continue alone.
This is what we have planned so far. Can anyone help with ideas for our north eastern section or give advice on the timing of the rest?

Dec 1-4: Orlando- Magic Kingdom, Epcot

Dec 5-11: Cape Canaveral- Everglades NP- Islamadora- Key West -Miami 12: Fly to Washington DC (or should we try & drive this?)

Dec 13 -22 - Washington- Baltimore- Philadelphia- NYC

Dec 22-27: NYC

Dec 27: Fly NYC to Phoenix (flight booked)

Dec 28/29: Sedona

Dec 30/31: GCNP (accommodation booked in the park)
