    We have an opportunity to come to disney but will only be there for Thurs, Fri, and Sat. WIll this be enough time to get a disney experience or should we wait and book it for next year and possibly have an extra day or two? we have 2 boys - 5 and 7

    Three days would certainly give you a taste of the Disney experience, Karen.  I'd sort of liken it to going to an Italian pizzeria, but only having enough time to taste the bread sticks; you'd leave with a hankering for pizza!  A three-day stay at Walt Disney World would allow you to visit all four of the theme parks, if you so desire, but you certainly wouldn't have time to really immerse yourself in the magic and experience the vast majority of all that Disney has to offer.  If it were me, I'd probably opt to hold off a year and take my family for a slightly longer visit.  A week long stay would be a good amount of time to experience all four parks at a leisurely pace as well as try out a restaurant or two and visit Downtown Disney.  I hope that helps!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
