    I am trying to plan our first D W vacation for 4 including 2 girls (7 , 4). I wanted to find out what is the minimum number of days that we should plan for. I m concerned that 2 many days will wear us out. But don't want to have too few. Girls luv 2 go

    I think that the minimum amount of days necessary to enjoy a full--though not exhausting--trip to Walt Disney World is seven days, Trisha.  That amount of time will allow you to experience all four of the major theme parks and still have time to spend a down day or two at either a water park or your resort's pool.  You'll even have time to revisit the park(s) that you couldn't get enough of the first time around.  I think you are already aware of a key point: not to wear out your girls.  Make sure you plan early mornings or late nights, but not both.  Don't try to see everything because you can't do it.  Even after years of visiting WDW I've not seen and done all of it.  Just go at a reasonable pace for your family and enjoy that which you do experience.  Save the rest for next time!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
