    We have never been to WDW before, would 10 days be better than 7 or too long? I really want to enjoy everything without being rushed. Also what is the better time for a vacation - beginning of May or September? Thanks

    Hi Suna again!   You have great questions and hopefully I can answer them to your liking!

    From past numbers September might be less crowded but it often depends on what specials or packages are being offered.  September is the month when children are back in school and the parks tend to quiet down.  May is not a bad month to visit but you might find more school groups in the parks.  The weather for both months is about the same.

    Seven days at Walt Disney World is a great vacation but ten days is an incredible one!  If your budget and time permits I would certainly say do as much as possible.  For many guests they never leave the parks to know how many other great things are offered.  Take an afternoon and head to Fort Wilderness to see the stables, horseback and pony rides, carriage rides, canoeing, and fishing just to name a few activities.  Try both water parks to see which you enjoy the most.  Don't forget to visit Downtown Disney where you will find great stores and dining locations.  It is also where you can see the show, Cirque De Soleil.  If you have free time consider taking one of the many tours that are offered.

    So I for one would say come for ten days and will still run out of time to do it all!
