Young children have sky-high hopes for their holidays, with nearly half fancying a trip to the Moon, a survey has revealed
Children are quite literally looking for something out of this world when it comes to holiday destinations, as a survey reveals nearly half of them want a trip to the moon.
The list of desired destinations, which names more regular (and easier to reach) hotspots such as a visit to Disney World in Florida, also features many fantasy worlds such as CS Lewis's world of Narnia, Hogwarts - the school in the Harry Potter stories - as well as the village of Hogsmeade from the same series.
The online poll found that children aged between three and eight in Britain also fancied trips to Hundred Acre Wood, home to AA Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh; Pride Rock, from the Lion King; and Lapland.
More realistic youngsters fancied a trip to Australia, which, like Disney World, parents would certainly find easier to get
travel insurance and tickets for.
