It's definitely what you make it. You can run ragged doing parks from open to close or plan a balance of parks and other leisurely activities....

You can plan a balance that includes leisure activities?

We can't, being we have 9, 7, and 3 year old dictating the pace. Typically we don't let the kids run the show, but Disney trips are for them so my wife and I just fall in line.

Lol yes we do. We have 3 who are 10 years and younger. Did Ft Wilderness this past January for about 7 days. Only went to the parks 3 of those days. Kids were happy. But we have been 4 times over the last 5 years I believe so they've done it all. We usually do 7 days or more so that helps. The first couple years we would go to the parks every day but now we've done it so much everyone enjoys relaxing a little too...

We r going for six days over spring break and only plan on hitting 2-3 parks. Figure with water parks and the campground activities, hopefully that will be a good balance

Sounds like a good plan. My kids enjoyed the campground activities and it was very laid back. Not the rush and crowds like in the parks. At least when we were there in January.

I will be at FW for 7 days starting 12-19 with the family including 2 grandchildren (twins) who will turn 8 while we are there. They definitely will be running the show.

Received a notification this morning that our MagicBand's shipped yesterday.

Getting closer.

When we went last year it was the first time for any of us. Me, wife and two kids. We went pretty much none stop for eight days then relaxed on the ninth to get ready for the LONG ride home. We did four Disney parks a water park AND Sea world. And spent one day at Clear water beach. No doubt it was a very busy nine days but so much fun.

We went for ten days with the kids a few years ago. It was awesome! Got the parks pass for 7days and tried to chill out the other three. So much to do in FW it was great. It was a 1700 mile trip one way for us so we wanted to make sure we were there for a decent amount of time.

All 4 parks in the past 4 days. Taking tomorrow "off" to hang out in the CG and go to Disney Springs (apparently that's the new name of Downtown Disney). Decided to rent a golf cart for the next couple of nights. I think that made the kids happier than anything so far!

If somebody is looking for a premium site and values quiet and doesn't need to be on top of the amenities (getting a golf cart no mater what) which loop would you guys prefer? I'm the type that likes to leave the hoopla behind when I'm done experiencing it.
