Walt Disney World previously had its own small airport: the Walt Disney World Airport which was also known as the Lake Buena Vista STOLport. During the early 1970s, scheduled passenger service was operated by Shawnee Airlines with small de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter commuter turboprops which had STOL (short take off and landing) capabilities on flights to Tampa and Orlando. The airport is no longer in operation.

Skip the hustle of New York City for this 251-room, historic Hudson Valley gem, offering sweeping views of the Catskill mountains. Mohonk Mountain House has been family-owned and operated since 1869, so it’s no surprise they do family vacations right (starting with the property’s castle-like exterior that will have any kid’s jaw dropping upon arrival). While adults quiet their thoughts with a mindfulness workshop or relax with a book at the solarium, the kids reap the benefits of Mohonk’s Kids Club. Catering to little ones of all age groups (known as Tykes, Explorers, and Adventurers), the program offers activities from pony rides and playground time to fossil hunts and kite making. Of course, there’s seasonal fun like snow-tubing and boat rides. Budding outdoor-enthusiasts will embark on nature walks and identify plants and animals with Mohonk’s resident naturalist, and walk away with an official Junior Naturalist Program certificate. During the summer months and select holidays, an evening program featuring ice cream socials and “twilight hikes” allows parents to escape for a romantic dinner together. Once the whole party reconvenes, take a dip in the indoor heated pool or at the resort’s very own lake—lifeguard on duty, of course.
