    All you guys are Disney Pros. So tell me, do you take the commando approach in touring the parks or a more relaxed approach? I've seen some of the touring plans and they all look very stressfull.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for the great question!

    I have to say that I try my best not to get too stressed about fitting everything into any one trip. After all, it is a vacation and I would much rather be relaxed and enjoy the attractions that we get a chance to see than be stressed and worried about fitting every last thing in. I have noticed that the more trips I take, the less worried I become about cramming everything into a few days. Also, the longer I stay, the easier it is to avoid the commando approach.

    During the planning stages, each person in our group chooses two or three things in each park that they definitely want to see and do, and most times there are multiple votes for the same attraction. We make it a priority to do the things on this list and consider anything else an added bonus. I have to say that in all of my trips, we have been able to see and do everything on our wish list and much more without feeling stressed, and we know that there is always next time!

    This being said, different touring plans work for different people, and everyone has their own personal style to touring the parks. What works best for two adults won't be what works well for a family with small children. Ultimately, as long as you are happy with what you accomplished, then I would consider your vacation a success!

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation!
