Oakbrook Terrace, IL (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
According to a national survey of redbox renters*, approximately 8 out of 10 families with school-age children will spend spring break at home this year. More than 70 percent of these families will watch more than three movies during spring break, and nearly half of respondents (49.1 percent) plan to bring Disney home with them by watching the new Disney movie Tangled, available at redbox® locations nationwide.
For families traveling this spring break, many will take redbox along. Watching a movie is the most effective way to keep kids entertained according to the redbox Spring Break survey (70.1 percent), followed distantly by listening to music (7 percent), reading books (6 percent) and playing games such as iSpy or BINGO (6 percent). It should come as no surprise that more than half of survey respondents (53 percent) have an in-car DVD entertainment system and (91.5 percent) have a portable DVD player.
Finding the nearest redbox location while traveling is easy at http://www.redbox.com or via the redbox iPhone® or Android mobile apps. Plus, the redbox rent-and-return anywhere® policy allows families to rent in one destination and return at another.
