    We are a family of 5 with 2 pre- teens and a teenager. Our last trip in May'11 we only spent a few hours at the parks before they'd ask to go back for pool ( and t.v. ) time. What time of year would be best for some swim time but less "couch potato &q

    Hello, Marsha!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Unfortunately, the best times to visit Walt Disney World are usually when the kids are in school.  It really makes for a most difficult time when the kids get back from vacation and have tons of work to make-up.  As the kids get older, and have 7 or 8 different classes, the work can be overwhelming.  However, you may find a time that falls under some great times to visit, so take a look at my response and compare it to your school calendar. You just may be in luck.  Don't concern yourself too much with the pool issue.  You will be happy to know that Disney keeps all their pools at a constant 82 degrees year round.  They want to make sure that guests can enjoy some down time at the pools no matter what time of the year they visit.  

    Have you and your family ever had a chance to visit the DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park?  This is a great way to get them up and moving!  DisneyQuest is located in Downtown Disney and has 5 floors of interactive fun.  Trust me, they will LOVE this place.  They will not want to leave, so be prepared to pry those hands away from the fun. 

    Your question was cut short, so I hope I covered everything you were looking for.  If not, please come and visit with me again.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
