    HI Rebekah,

    As for the basics, I'd try to get in, at a minimum, two days at the Magic Kingdom, and at least a full day at each of the other parks, plus a day for hanging out at your hotel pool and exploring Downtown Disney.

    With a five-year-old, you'll want to book a character meal or two, and probably Pirates League for swashbuckling dress-up. For your anniversary, you and your hubby should book a signature dining experience, and plan to leave the kiddos with one of the Childcare Centers.

    Since you have lots to celebrate, you should consider ordering a special gift basket from They have great stuff for kids and adults.

    For extras, you should read this Moms View post where all the Moms get to weigh in on our favorite off-the-beaten path Disney experiences.

    We're happy to provide more detail about any of this. Just let us know what you need!
