    Doug- arriving 3/18, trying to figure out our "non-park" day (Sun 3/21 or Sat 3/27). Going to Church Sun, so will get to park later; flying Sat night (7p) so would leave early. Nicer to have slower day after arrival or avoid Spring break crowds


    I would make that Sunday your "non-park" day, for three reasons.

    First, you are going to church. Don't let the allure of the nearby parks rush you (or your kids) mentally through something that is that important to you. To attend the service, with no cloud hanging over you about getting to the parks, will make that a more meaningful and enjoyable experience.

    Second, services typically take some time. Better to have them take time out of a leisurely day, than a more frenetic one where you are hoping to get a certain amount of activities 'accomplished'.

    Finally, that Sunday will be a VERY busy day in the parks. Perhaps the busiest day during your visit, along with your departure day and the day before. If you are having a non-park day, best to let it spare you from one of the busiest days of your visit, as opposed to one of the lighter ones.

    I commend you on thinking about the need for slower, relaxing days on a vacation! If we all just added those to our Walt Disney World trips, we would all be much happier!

    Have a magical vacation!
