Plan For Down Days
Disney is exhausting. I really wasn't prepared for just how exhausting it would be, even for me. But I had been warned to plan nonpark days into our schedule, and I wound up beyond thankful I'd taken that advice to heart.
In addition to our park days, we built three do-nothing days into our vacation. We stayed at the hotel, slept in, enjoyed the pool, and all got the rest and relaxation we needed.
For my daughter, these days allowed her to refresh and reset — something she desperately needed after all the sensory overload the parks provided.
