Hi all! We are planning our 1st Disneyland vacation as a family for the end of September and I have a few planning questions that I would love some input on. We are planning on going for 9 days (Saturday-Sunday). Traveling will be myself, my husband, our 5 1/2 year old son and our 2 1/2 year old daughter. 1) I am trying to decide between getting a 4 Day Park Hopper or a 5 Day Park Hopper. My gut says to go with 5, just in case, so that we won't feel rushed and are able to take the naps and breaks that our two toddlers will require. Is that best? Or could we really see everything we need to with a 4 Day hopper? 2) After Disney, we are planning on switching to a San Diego area hotel to visit some attractions there. Currently looking into Legoland, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Safari Park. If we only do a 4 Day Hopper - we could go to 3 of these. If we end up with the 5 Day Hopper - we could only go to 2. Which of these parks would you choose to add on? Does the San Diego Zoo stand out enough from other zoos around the country that we should choose that as an option over Sea World? Are the other options in San Diego worth cutting out 1 day of Disney (down to a 4 day hopper) so that we can visit more of these? Right now, I have our tentative itinerary as: Sat - Travel, Dinner at Goofy's Kitchen, Explore Downtown Disney Sun - Disneyland, World of Color at night at DCA Mon - Disneyland Tues - California Adventure Wed - Disneyland Thurs - California Adventure and Travel to San Diego Fri - Legoland Sat - San Diego Zoo Sun - Travel Home What would you change, if anything, to make this itinerary the best possible trip for my kids? Should I go to San Diego first and go to Disney for the second half of the trip? I wouldn't want everything else to be a letdown after Disney! Thank you all so much for your expertise! I can barely contain my excitement over sharing some Disney magic with my kids for the first time!
