    We are booked for 8/25-9/2! So excited to return after 5 years. We opted for rail transportation from NJ to ORL because of the cost. Can you provide inisight on this mode of transportation? It's 24 hours for our family of 4 (10 and 15 yrs).

    Hello, Jean!

    My kids and I took the auto train when my Fairy Godfriend offered us the space in her car; let me tell you, it was so cool for the kids and I to get a different perspective of the countryside on our way to Walt Disney World!

    As with any lengthier journey, be sure to have the kids bring something to watch (iPod, iPhone, portable DVD player, etc.), a book or two and maybe even a deck of cards or portable games of some sort. I also tucked a small blanket and small pillow to make it more comfortable for sleeping (didn't get a sleeper car). In addition, be sure to bring some sandwiches, snacks and drinks to keep everyone happy, too.

    It was nice to be able to add one more mode of transportation to our favorite vacation destination, so enjoy the ride!
