    Hi My family is planning a trip to WDW celebrate my daughters sweet 16 it will be a short tripWould you still recomend taking a break during during the day and going back to the hotel or should we spend most of the time at the parks that she loves?

    Hi Deborah,

    What a perfect venue for a sweet 16!  (I'm guessing you are not surprised I said that!) I would allow your birthday girl to help plan your itinerary.  If you are not travelling during peak summer months (when the parks tend to get crowded and warm in the afternoon), you can certainly plan to spend most of your time inside the parks.  If this is a first trip, and you only have a few days, you will absolutely find tons of amazing attractions, parades, restaurants, shops and special events throughout all of the parks.  Disney does have a host of fantastic things to see and do outside the four main theme parks, however, including shopping and dining at Downtown Disney, entertainment at the BoardWalk, fabulous dinner shows (Mickey's Backyard BBQ, Hoop De Doo Revue and Spirit of Aloha Show) and an original Cirque du Soleil performance).  You may want to add one of these to your agenda to make your daughter's celebration extra magical.

    Have a wonderful trip!
