    I am travelling to Orlando with my husband and 2 1/2 yr old daughter. We plan to visit two parks, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom. Do you feel most toddlers do ok with back to back days at the parks or are we better to put a rest day in the middle?

    In my experience toddlers are fine with several days in a row at the parks, assuming that your days have rest breaks built into them. When my girls were toddlers (and even most of the time now), we would get to the park early, spend 3-5 hours there and then leave. We'd go back to the hotel, nap, swim, take a bath, and relax. Then we'd go out to dinner and put the kids in bed at their regular time. With a balanced pace like this, kids are fine to cope with whatever Disney brings them.

    If you were planning to stay in the parks from sun up to sun down, with no breaks during the day, then having a full rest day in the middle would probably be necessary at some point.

    Hope this helps.
