Last week we visited the Disneyland Resort in LA for the Cars Land opening. I attended as a member of the media, but since Disney offered park passes for the family and hotel room would be covered anyway, we decided to make it a family trip. We're already splurging on airline tickets to the UK and the Philippines this year, so for our Disney trip we decided to go the budget route and drive down instead.
Many people choose to drive down to LA instead of fly because it's cheaper, and if you factor in the time it takes to drive to the airport, park, etc..., it's only a couple of hours difference in travel time. Still, the drive from the SF Bay Area to Anaheim takes about 8 hours, door-to-door, including a lunch stop, gas reloading and a reasonable amount of potty breaks and light LA traffic (although "light LA traffic" is something of an oxymoron), so it's not a picnic in the park. Fortunately, we have ourToyota Sienna to take us on our road trip in comfort and style! Here are my favorite features in the Sienna that make an 8-hour drive not only bearable, but almost enjoyable:
As the Cars movie theme song says, Life is a highway, I'm gonna ride it all night long..... I couldn't agree more -- as long as we're in a Sienna :)
