The question really isn’t “is your preschool ready for a vacation” but more “are you ready to travel with your preschooler.” That’s why Disney Parks and the Huffington Post have put together this handy guide (or “foolproof flowchart”) to help you decide if you are ready to take your preschooler on vacation. 

Lest you think you will be asked about how many tantrums your preschooler launches into at any given meal, let me put your fears to rest. This chart is full of rainbows and smiley faces, paving your way to your vacation answers.

When asked “Do you have a preschooler” your choices are “rainbow” (yes) or slightly mischievous smiley face, meaning “no.” If you are a preschooler at heart, the chart tells you that you should go on vacation. And, if your preschooler is noisy, doesn’t like sitting, and loves acting silly, you should definitely go on vacation. Basically, all roads lead to a vacation with your family, but you should check out the adorable chart here, anyway.
