Children’s top holiday destination… the Moon

The skies not the limit if you let your kids pick their summer holiday, destination of choice is the Moon.

When asked where they would like to take a trip to, the Moon was named by the majority of children as their ideal holiday. Closely followed by Disney Land and Narnia, the fictional world from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

The results come from a survey of British children aged three to eight by holiday website

The survey revealed both real and make-believe places in the top ten, following Narnia was Hogsmeade, from Harry Potter, and Hogwarts – Harry Potters school was seventh. Harry Potters imaginary world may be closer than some parents might think – with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, now open in Florida.

Lapland took second place, with children desperate to meet Santa and his reindeer, and Winnie-the-Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood to visit Winne, Piglet and Eeyore.

Another destination parents might struggle with was Pride Rock, the fictional kingdom Mustafa and Simba ruled in The Lion King.

The ninth holiday hotspot was Australia – possibly due to the fact it has featured in so many children’s films, including Finding Nemo.

The final destination of choice was Bikini Bottom, the underwater world of fictional character Spongebob Squarepants. co-founder Chris Brown said: ‘Having four kids of my own, I know that mine would pick Disney over any destination, but it’s incredibly cute to see that so many selected fictional destinations and the Moon.’
