Rip Girls: Best Vacation Ever?

Rip Girls is one of the classic Disney Channel Original Movies of our childhood. We watched it on repeat, developed crushes on Kona, and started wearing board shorts all over town. Since this classic DCOM is airing tonight at midnight on Disney Channel (excitement!!) it seemed like a good time to reflect on the fact that Sydney’s two week trip to Hawaii may have been the best vacation ever, at least documented by the Disney Channel. On one single trip, Sydney:

 

Rediscovers her roots.

Convinces her family to MOVE to Makai so that she can stay in Makai forever.

**There is that dark period where everyone is mad at Sydney and she questions everything good that happened the whole time, but every movie needs an obstacle, right?
