    My family is planning on visiting Disney in May. Our daughter is 10 and this is the first time for all of us. How many days does it take to see everything?

    My family has taken Disney trips that have lasted anywhere from six to nineteen days, Tara.  With those experiences under my belt, I can confidently tell you that I believe ten days is the ideal trip length.  Anything less will seem hurried and anything more can get tiresome.  If you plan your itinerary wisely, a ten day trip will allow you a number of days in the theme parks, a couple days in the water parks, and maybe a day or two to relax by the pool or take in some shopping at Downtown Disney.  I need to clarify, though, that you won't be able to see everything in ten days; I've been on many (many, many, many) Disney trips and still I haven't seen and experienced everything.  Ten days, though, will allow you to see and take part in a variety of Disney's best and brightest offerings and go home feeling as though you had a most magical trip.  Enjoy your vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
