Has the cost of Disney World become unaffordable for the average American family?

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, has been a go-to destination for generations of American families, but the skyrocketing costs of admission, accommodations, and even spending inside the park are leaving many visitors wondering if a Disney vacation is now only reserved for the rich.

A family of four from New Jersey reached out to FOX News Digital after taking a recent trip to Disney World, saying they had sticker shock over what they spent on their visit and noticed changes at the park from times past.

A New Home-Swapping Platform Allows You To Travel The World Like Cameron Diaz And Kate Winslet

“We started Kindred with the goal of making travel a way of life, not just an occasional escape,” explains company co-founder and president Tasneem Amina. Inspired by the flexibility offered through remote work, co-founders Justine Palefsky and Tasneem Amina created a home swapping network that harnesses the power of community. By focusing on sharing rather than monetizing, Kindred does not take homes off the market or inflate housing prices. And the idea is catching on, earlier this year, the company raised $7.75 million in seed funding to grow the platform.

Start the summer holiday off with fun books

After another tumultuous school year on several accounts, summer vacation is a welcome break for kids.

While children need to step away from academics for a while, they still need to be read to and to read independently if their skill set allows. One of the best ways to keep children listening/reading is to seek out books that are light-hearted and fire the imagination, such as the books reviewed today.

It’s a proven fact that kids who don’t read (or are not read to) over the summertime will fall behind their peers when they return to school. Your public library has just about everything a kid could ask for in the reading world your local library is eager to help. What’s more, your public library’s offerings are free of charge. That’s a real win-win.

Empower kids with a summertime of terrific books that they won’t be graded on. Instead, keep
