[QUOTE=iluvwdw;861620]For my family, longer trips are the best. But ONLY because we set A LOT of time aside for relaxing!!! Last year we went for 18 days (16 days in Orlando…we drove). The first week, we spent in my timeshare off site. We didn’t go to a SINGLE park! We just totally relaxed at our resort. It was GREAT! Then we moved to 10 days at POP Century…even then, we only went to the parks 4 or 5 days. DH would NEVER agree to go back year after year if I planned us going into the parks every day of our trip. I’m lucky he goes along as it is! I don’t want to REALLY tire him out!
When we go to the parks for 4 or 5 days, we go to all 4 theme parks…multiple times! We are a park hopping family…and when we go to the parks, we are there from open until close. I have a double stroller for the kids, they can nap in it if they choose to! :laugh:
When we get home, we aren’t as tired as we used to be when we did parks every single day, morning til night. For us, we just won’t do that anymore.
No matter how you choose to vacation at WDW, it’s sure to be a magical one! :happy:[/QUOTE]
That trip sounds great!!! The afternoon rest time is critical for us. DS7 and I both get cranky!! :laugh: I really like the idea of all the time for relaxation and a less stressfull pace.
I plan our WDW trip, because DW plans the rest of our lives and this really gives her a vacation too. Reservations, which park to be in and coordinating dining with EMH is tough. But, I truly love it. As a kid, WDW is something I never thought I would be able to do, so I am a little over the top!!
Wish DS was still stroller size, but he is big enough now to do boy stuff!!
