    Trip with kids. Ages 4,2, and infant. How many days for the trip do you suggest? We have always done little weekend trips and we run from park to park completely exhausted by the time the trip is over. Advice on planning agenda?

    Hello Mary Jo!
    I recommend taking at least a 6 day/5 night vacation to give you time to work a day off during your vacation. I always plan for having 1 day either in the middle of our vacation or the very last day to sleep in a little, relax by the pool and recharge my batteries.
    Taking a day off in the middle of your vacation is a great way to rest and relax before resuming your park touring for the remainder of your stay.  It allows you to enjoy those last few days of your Disney vacation instead of feeling run down from all the fun.Sometimes I will take a day off on the last day of our vacation to give my family a time to relax before resuming our daily lives.  Taking a day off doesn't mean missing out on any of the fun.  Disney Resort pools are often a highlight for little ones on vacation, in fact it is my younger children's favorite part of our vacation.There are also many things to stop and explore outside of the parks,my favorite way to view Wishes is from the beach at the Polynesian resort.  It is typically not crowded and a particular favorite spot because you can stop by Captain Cook's Snack Company at the resort to grab a Dole Whip before staking your spot on the beach.This is a great way to end your day of relaxation before returning to the parks the next day.
    Make sure to build in a little rest time each day of your touring.Building in time to return to your resort for a nap is an absolute blessing especially if you are going to be staying until park closing time.  You don't have to return to your resort for a little rest though, one of my favorite ways to rest is to ride the monorail.  It is a nice way to rest and still view that Disney magic while taking a break. I hope this helps and please let us know if you have anymore questions!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
