Theme parks are a great education on physics, engineering, etc. There's no better way to learn geography than by traveling.Regarding school schedules - we pull our kids OUT of school for a week or so, if need be, to travel shoulder and low seasons. ... And we always try to make each vacation "educational" if possible - even Disney (Epcot center "world" section comes to mind).
The day the schools refuse to allow our kids to miss a week or two for family travel, is the day we begin homeschooling!
We already homeschool, for other reasons, and the flexibility is a great perk.
