    MoM's Please Help, You too Bret...1st time to Disney world, Have 4 day's, Feb 10-14th, How would you explore Disney World? I have enrolled with TGM, and really confused .Staying at Cont. Was raised in Disneyland when I was a kid in Anaheim.

    Hopefully you are aware that four days is fairly little time for getting to know all of Disney World.

    Fortunately you are visiting WDW at a time when crowds will likely be relatively low (although these days the parks are almost always a bit crowded), so that should help you take advantage of your short visit.  In my opinion, you have two options (I like #2 best):

    1)  Try to get a sampling of the attractions that interest you the most from each park.  You won't likely be able to do everything you want, and if you somehow did you would be completely exhausted after four days.
    2) Limit your plan to two or three parks that you are most interested in, and save the other parks for a later visit (believe me, you'll be hooked, and want to plan another trip!).  This should allow you to hit more of the details in these parks, while still not overextending yourself.

    Please be aware that WDW is much so much larger than Disneyland.  Travel times between parks and hotels is significant, and the parks themselves are larger.  This tends to mean that you walk much more, and may become more tired than you might at a place like Disneyland.

    Regarding TGM (, I suggest you visit their forums and ask for some help there as well.  They are an extremely responsive, knowledgeable and friendly bunch.

    Happy planning!  ºoº
