    What is the ideal length of time to stay at WDW and enjoy the most it has to offer? The family is a party of 4, ages 40, 32, 19, 9. We are on a budget but it is the first time visiting for two of the guests so we want to make the most of it.

    I think you need at least one week to be able to see everything without being to exhausted to enjoy all that Walt Disney World has to offer. In seven days you should be able to explore each park, including the water parks. You will need breaks from the excitement and fun to unwind and relax, and I will tell you that it is necessary to take those breaks. The great thing about being on a budget is that Disney has the resort to fit that budget. A family of four might love the family suites that just opened at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. These value resorts offer great accommodations at a very reasonable rate. The rooms themselves are works of art. From Finding Nemo to Cars to the Lion King, these suites make you feel apart of the film. Every inch of the rooms is artfully decorated and just a cool place to stay. In addition to all that, all the suites have doors that separate the living room from the main bedroom which means privacy. My wife and I need some privacy and this value resort would be a great option. Since the hotel is brand new, the kids will find it delightful. The pool is huge and you might even hear Nemo and his pals chatting and singing while you are underwater. It is really neat. I hope this assists you and I will see you at the parks.
