    I am planning a trip for around the first week in Feb 2013. How many days do you recommend so that a 4 yr old won't get over tired from long days, or burnt out for being there to long? Looking at 6 nights, but not sure if that is a little too long.

    Hi Cora! 

    Congrats on planning a trip to Walt Disney World next February! You are smart to plan in advance! Nail down your resort and reservations early to ensure you get exactly what you want. Don't forget to book your Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) beginning 180 days prior to your arrival date. You will get the best selection if you book in advance.

    In regards to the number of days for your trip, we've been visiting Walt Disney World since our kids were toddlers and we always stay ten days. We find that a ten day vacation is only a little bit more money than a shorter vacation, but it allows us plenty of time to explore the parks, Downtown Disney and the resort pool.

    You will be surprised at how fast time flies while you are down at WDW. You may think that a six night vacation seems long now, but when you get down there, you will wonder where the time went! Six nights should be a great amount of time, because it will allow you four days to enjoy each of the four parks, one day to relax and enjoy the resort pool and shopping at Downtown Disney and one day to hit up all of the favorite "must-sees" again before you leave.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
