    you all mention going to the resort to rest midday.i'm worried about wasting precious magic time bt transportation to and fro,etc.On the other hand i don't want everyone cranky by day you find it as necessary with older children DDs 13,11?

    We are the unusual family who rarely stops for a minute to return to "rest".  I think what is important is to know your family and what kind of pace is best for them.  When we visit the parks we make sure we have a sit down table service meal mid day which forces everyone to stop and catch their breath and rest.  Having a good meal was just what our kids needed in a more quiet and less hectic atmosphere.  When they were younger if they needed a nap they would simply fall asleep and take one in the stroller and adapt that way.

    Your children are old enough to tell you when they have had enough.  If you plan on staying for a late night Extra Magic Hours in a park it is often best to not be there all day but to have some sort of rest late afternoon and return in the evening.  Don't try to do it all in one day...keep a relaxed pace and plan and don't stress over lines or crowds.  The magic is there for you to enjoy!
