Got any boredom busters for our car trip to Disney World?

We are headed to Disney in Sept. and I was hoping someone had some great ideas to share. We are hoping to lessen the boredom for the 13 hour car trip with our 7 and 4 year olds. Thanks for sharing...

  • My tip - drive at night so the kiddos sleep!
    We go from FL to NC at least once a year and driving at night has been a life saver!
    We also have a portable DVD player.
    Don't forget snacks!

  • Make a binder for each kid with different car cams and printable games, coloring sheets from online sites. Get Disney ones too. Get a few Disney books to read, maybe a Disney handheld electronic game. Print out easy picture car BINGO. Get each a backpack or bag to holg their car stuff and put a few non messy snacks and little toys in it.

  • DS and portable DVD player if you don't have one in your car. Those aquadoodle things are great for the car too.

  • We play Rubberneckers. Game I bought at a bookstore. You have cards and have to find stuff on the cards, make someone in a car wave to use, catch someone picking their nose, find a clothes line etc.
    Really fun and kills a couple of hours
