    Hi! My husband daughter and I are going to WDW early this summer, have 5 day PH tickets. Travelling w/ family, 10 of us in all. Any suggestions on how to make sure we have time for just the 3 of us while still getting along with everyone? Thanks!

    Traveling with large parties can be so fun, Kathryn, but it can also be difficult, logistically speaking.  My suggestion is to speak with your group before hand so that you can all voice your expectations for the trip.  Depending upon how much time you all want to spend together, perhaps you can plan to maybe spend mornings together, have some free time in the afternoons, and meet up again for dinner.  Another suggestion would be to plan just one major event to do together each day (ie., the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue or Fantasmic!) and leave the rest open for family time.  That way, when you all come together for the one event, you can talk about the attractions you've enjoyed on your own!  I truly believe that the best way to avoid hurt feelings is to set out expectations before you arrive.  I hope that one of my suggestions will give you a springboard from which to start that conversation with your traveling party.
