Grandma goes to Disney! (Grandpa too)

Ask any child where their favorite place to vacation in the United States is and I'll bet they say Disneyworld! If you are lucky you might get there once or twice in your childhood with your parents...but what about Grandma and Grandpa? If it involves grandchildren having a blast and a ton of fun, they might just plan it!

Today we interview a grandma that didn't just tag along...she planned it! And it took 15 years of saving to accomplish her goal! The entire Nelsen family stayed right there on site and fulfilled a lifetime dream of this retired educational specialist.

Maybe you have the same dream. That dream that involves taking your entire family on a vacation to Disneyworld! Join us today and hear all the tricks to taking and planning a huge family trip!
