    If I only had time to go to one of the places.. the Boardwalk or Downtown Disney which one should I go to?

    Hi there, Elizabeth!

    If you want to see everything in your given time, you might consider the BoardWalk. Its relatively smaller size means that one loop around will allow you to take in the sights without much difficulty.

    Downtown Disney, on the other hand, offers so much more. The shopping and dining options are much more extensive than those at BoardWalk, and the atmosphere, will not as leisurely and "laid back" will definitely put you in a Disney frame of mind, too.

    Both are great destinations; BoardWalk is a beautiful stroll with some nice shops and eateries, while Downtown Disney is much more hustle-and-bustle, with a wide variety of stores.

    While I would not presume to tell you where you should go with your limited time, I would encourage you to check out third-party fan site AllEars.Net, where you can find reader reviews and reactions to both places. This might help you narrow down your focus.

    Have a wonderful time -- you won't go wrong with either choice!

    See you later, celebrator,
