    We are planning a trip the last week of December. Planning to stay 4 days-5 nights. We have a 4 yr. old daughter. Will that be to long of a stay for her or is it plenty of time to get to do what we want. It's our first family trip as a family of 3.

    Hi Donna,

    Of course you know your child best, but in my opinion, you could easily stay even longer than that and keep totally busy and happy.  Most families with preschoolers find that two days at the Magic Kingdom is about right, you can split up the remaining two days between Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney and your own resort pool. I guarantee that you won't run out of things to do. To get the most out of you vacation, you should make sure to make all table service dining reservations as far in advance as possible, particularly for any character meals you'd like to experience.  I took my own daughters for a week at a time on several occasions when they were preschoolers with great success. I hope you and your little princess have an equally wonderful experience.
