    Hello! My fiancee and I are planning our 1st ever WDW visit for our Honeymoon in Jan. 2019! Which days of the week would you suggest? We were planning on 5 park days...Monday through Friday or Sunday through Thursday? Is 5 days enough for 1st time visitors

    Hi and Congratulations, Rachel!

    Ready to begin?
    Let the wonder take hold.
    Feel it draw you in.
    Watch the moment unfold.

    Setting out for a new tomorrow.

    It's wonderful when first-time Guests bring questions to Disney Parks Moms Panel, and especially fun when their first Walt Disney World vacation is a special event like a honeymoon. A Walt Disney World experience is many things: fun, exciting, adventurous, magical, and — for me — among the most romantic settings imaginable for celebrating happiness and love.

    When first-time Guests planning their stay ask me "how many days?" I always encourage a 7-10 day stay, especially if it's likely to be the only Walt Disney World visit for a long period of time. I frequently say there is so much to see and do and enjoy both inside the 4 theme parks and all around Walt Disney World that you can easily spend a week taking it all in, and spending 2 days in each park is easy to do. Add in a day or 2 of relaxation just chilling out at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel pool or a day of shopping, dining, and entertainment at Disney Springs and you have an easy 10 days.

    I think if you can extend your stay beyond 5 days, you will certainly have plenty to enjoy. If you only do a 5-day stay, then I, personally, would give the Monday through Friday stay a strong consideration. The good news, in my opinion, is that you are already planning one of the more optimal times to visit at the end of January.

    Rachel, I hope you bring us all the questions you have as you plan your magical honeymoon.

    Reach out and find your
    Happily ever after!

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
