Nearly 30 years ago, one family's disastrous trip to Wally World was captured on film and it remains a comedy classic to this day.
Now the cast of "National Lampoon's Vacation" is back for a Griswold family reunion.
The cast of the film reunited together again, with Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Dana Barron and Anthony Michael Hall posing for the cover of Entertainment Weekly's annual "Reunions" issue.

"National Lampoon's Vacation" was the first film in the "Vacation" series that was followed by five sequels.
"Chevy's a genius and my dear friend. I love you and I'm so glad that the four of us can be together at the same time," D'Angelo, told ABC's "Good Morning America" as the group was interviewed during the cover photo shoot.
The 60-year-old D'Angelo played wife Ellen Griswold in the films.
Hall commented that Chase's playful harassment of his movie son continues still.
"When he pulled up for the Entertainment Weekly shoot I was outside with Beverly, and Chevy pulls up in his Benz. As he slowly starts to open his car door, he looked at me and said, 'Can I get a coffee?' "
Hall played son Rusty and later went on to build his stardom after being a part of the "Brat Pack" in the 1980s, starring in films such as "The Breakfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles." The "Office" star Ed Helms is reportedly going to play Rusty in a new adaptation of "National Lampoon."
Barron played the first version of teenage daughter Audrey, whose role was later done by Dana Hill, Juliette Lewis and Marisol Nichols.
Missing from the reunion was crazy Cousin Eddie, played by Randy Quaid. The actor has been in hiding in Canada after being arrested in 2010. He has not been heard from much except for a recent phone call to Chase.
"I heard from him when he called me from Canada, saying he's in jail," said Chase. "Twenty grand! To get out."
