We the North! Lets go Raptors!
- Mar 29, 2011
We normally go to Disney in August. The heat wipes us out. We need a midday break!. 2 hours at the resort plus travel time. Works out great for us!
This was us on our last trip with the kids too. Our family are early risers so RD is easy, in the evenings the kids are a mess. I'm currently trying to plan our next trip so that we have some nights in the parks and trying to figure out how to get them enough rest to do this since they won't sleep in (even when exhausted) and they don't nap. *sigh*I've always found that when we take afternoon breaks we don't get back to the parks. So instead of breaks we do RD to about dinner time and then back to the hotel for the rest of the evening.
If we want to do a late night, we get a later start. It's not ideal but it's what works for our family.
Thanks for the advice! This helps me a lot, I'll plan on staying in the park then and taking it easy after lunch.For one day, definitely do not attempt an afternoon break. You are looking at spending at least 3 hours out of the park for a break, with at least 1 hour of that travel time. I'd rope drop, get at least 10 attractions completed by noon, have a leisurely lunch, then take it easy the rest of the day. You will get more out of your day, IMO.
