Awards: None

Only Vacation film that does not include a reference to the Walley World amusement park (the original film revolved around visiting the park, Clark had a T-shirt for it in European Vacation, and Clark and Eddie drank egg nog from Marty Moose (mascot of the park) glasses in Christmas Vacation.)
