    This is true whether you're traveling by plane or in your own car! Always check your travel schedule before you leave the house.  The last thing you want to eat is cold leftovers for the holidays!

    The last thing you need, when you're traveling with kids, is to have one of them say to you that they're hungry. If you're not prepared, it can cost you dearly!  Always have some snacks for the kids and yourself!  I get moody when I don't eat, so I can imagine trying to find a place to eat, either at an airport or in the middle of nowhere. Be fully prepared!

    If procrastination is the name of your game, well, more power to you!  If not, then planning your packing a week in advance is a time and stress saver. Especially, if you're the one packing for everyone. When travelinig alone with the kids last year, I started packing weeks in advance. I had to. I even had lists of what was where. When we left our home, to go on a cruise, I felt prepared. I love that feeling.

  • Be comfy! 5 of 8

    When traveling, I like to dress up in layers. If it gets warm, I know I can take off layers to be more comfy. Same goes with the kids. Especially if you're leaving the home early in the morning. The kids are in sweats and comfy shoes and I'm most comfortable in yoga pants.

    Traveling with the kids and their electronic entertainment is essential when making a long distance trip.  If you're kids don't suffer from motion sickness, make sure they have the latest app updates  and of course, if their tablets permit, the brand new DVD release of Disney Planes!

Yes, make sure to capture the meltdowns! It will be a special time for the whole family, you don't ever want to forget it.
