Long work hours and hectic schedules often leave families without time to bond, but a recent survey may have the solution: go on vacation.

The survey conducted by Disney found that families rekindle their bonds while taking a vacation together. Family vacations make families more excited, relaxed and affectionate with each other, which calms any stress between family members and makes them bond again, according to the survey.

"We know vacations are important, but to have parents validate how important vacation time is to their families was insightful," Leslie Ferraro, executive vice president of global marketing for Disney Parks, said in the study. "As we've learned from families who participated in the survey, those moments of quality family time can feel fleeting in our everyday home lives.

Memorial Day weekend, which is just a few days away, is likely your next opportunity to head out on vacation and bond with your family again. Luckily, Priceline.com just released its top 25 destinations for Memorial Day weekend. The cities are ranked by the affordability of hotels, entertainment venues and dining spots.
