Wait! It’s June already! Whew! The kids have finished their last weeks of school and the task of planning out an educating yet fun Summer Vacation is upon us. Our weeks will be filled with trips to local amusement & water parks, kid-friendly events and best of all “Summer Travel”. It’s no secret that we’re a family full of wanderlust and although we travel a lot during the year including during the school season I believe that my kids patiently anticipate our summer travel. What does that mean? It means that my family can jump up at a moments notice and decide to hop on an airplane, pack the car or just back pack around the world if the feeling hits us. What that also means is that the kids are always asking to bring their bulky laptops or tablets so that they can stream movies for entertainment during our road trips.
We made plans to travel to Jekyll Island, GA for a few days and the first question that my 9-year-old asked was “Mommy can I use your phone while we’re traveling”. I’m one of those parents who doesn’t mind my kids using my phone except they drain the battery quickly and what if I need my cell for an emergency and luckily for me while I was shopping at Walmart to grab some last minute snacks I ran across a display in the aisle that grabbed my attention when I passed through the Entertainment section looking for a car charger. I noticed that Walmart had great deals on their Walmart Family Mobile. The Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan just so happens to provide you with a few plan selections but the one that caught my attention was the one with Unlimited Talk, Text, and Data (10GB of 4G LTE Data) and you also receive a free NEW release movie ($7 value) on VUDU (each month) for only $49.88 a month.

There were so many amazing phones to choose from and since I was focusing on purchasing a phone that would be great for my youngest son, I decided to select the Cool Pad Rogue which was only $19.88 (on Rollback from $39.83). Sounds awesome right? Join in on the summer fun and get started on any plan for $19.88 (rollback from $25).
The phone was compact, light and kid-friendly. In fact I was able to select a kids option during my activation. This phone is perfect for our upcoming summer travel adventures and the internet service is streaming with 10GB of 4G LTE so it moves with extreme speed which is perfect for my little one who loves surfing the internet and also allows him to stay in touch with his father via Skype when he’s deployed or on a top-secret military assignment. This weekend we took a road trip to St. Simons & Jekyll Island and we were able to search a host of movies on VUDU for both of my sons to enjoy during our trip. Trust me after the kids have been in a car for 4 hours they are ready to stretch their legs and enjoy one of the Top 5 movies in the comfort of our hotel room on TV. I have many friends who have marveled about VUDU and their amazing deals so needless to say that we were extremely excited to try them.
We finalized our weekend packing with our new phone safely tucked away until the following day when we set off for our latest travel adventure. The next day we packed up the SUV, phones in their hands and we hit the road. My youngest was so excited about our upcoming road trip.
Top 5 Family Travel Vacation Movies
All of our movie selections can be found on VUDU and we found that they were the perfect travel pastime for any road trip. The selection on VUDU is endless, there is a movie for everyone in the entire family to enjoy. In fact, when we made a pit stop in Savannah to pick up my niece and I took a moment to relax at my sister’s house and enjoy a great movie with the kids. Our chosen list contain favorites that the entire family will enjoy.

VUDU is definitely a win-win for my entire family.
