Inspiration for a Retro Rt 66 Disney Themed Road TripCiaran Blumenfeld
Ever since Cars Land opened last summer, I’ve been dreaming about a road trip to Disneyland. It’s not the most practical dream since I live about a half hour away – maybe 45 minutes with traffic – but I can imagine a family like mine making the trek from Oregon or Arizona, or even farther afield. I imagine half the fun would be in the planning and packing.
To get in the mood for a Disney themed road trip, I would select some Disney themed luggage. I would choose memorable gear and souvenirs for my car once in the park. There would be decals.
The last time I went to Disneyland I indulged in my fantasy. I browsed in the shops at the Grand Californian, at Cars Land and in Downtown Disney. I’ve provided links to some of the items available in the Disney store. While merchandise at the Parks rotates, there is always a good selection of gear like this for travelers and I hope this slide show inspires you for your road trip.
Here are some of the items I’ve selected to deck out your drive to Disneyland… RT 66 Style, and some of the places in the park you’ll want to pause for a photo op if you make the trek.
Be sure to send me a postcard or a snapshot if you do!
