    I am planning a trip to WDW in April 2010 with my DH and 4 and 6 year old girls. I don't know how much park excitement they can handle. How many days out of 5 should we plan on going to a park? What about resort activities for some of the days?

    Hi, Jennifer!  I have daughters close in age to yours (ages four and eight), and I'll tell you, these same kids who tell me they are exhausted after a walk through the supermarket suddenly become Olympic track stars when it comes to running around Walt Disney World! 

    If you think the girls will need a break, you could schedule day three as your break day.  That gives you two days before and two days after to enjoy the theme parks, but you can spend day three lounging by the pool, enjoying some of the resort activities planned at your resort, or even visiting Downtown Disney.  My girls always enjoy a morning to sleep in, spend a while at the pool, then go to lunch at the Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney, followed by a visit to the Lego playground, and some souvenir shopping at The World of Disney shop. 

    Alternatively, you could do all four theme parks for your first four days, then spend your last day planning to relax before you head home.  That way, if the girls seem like they are holding out just fine and you want to squeeze in one more day at the theme parks, you'll have that option available to you.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
