What may be the one piece of advice to keep you from pulling your hair out on your perfect Disney vacation? Take an afternoon break!
Going to Disney can be a phenomenal, overwhelming, costly, and exciting experience. Often families want to make sure that they see and do as many attractions and shows as possible to get the best value for their money. People even stay in the parks from open to close. As tempting as it is to do the parks commando style, consider taking an afternoon break. The Disney heat can be an even greater incentive for your family to head back to your resort and relax.
Taking an afternoon break can allow your family to re-group and re-charge, helping to calm any frayed nerves. You can easily arrange your family’s daily trip plans to include some needed afternoon downtime for the family. If you are staying at a Disney resort, remember to take advantage of morning or evening Extra Magic Hours to increase your park time and decrease waiting time due to lower crowd levels.
When my family takes an afternoon break, we often go back to our resort to take a nap, go for a swim, or check out resort activities. It was hard for us at first to not do commando trips because we wanted to immerse our family in as much Disney as possible. During those trips, we had to be prepared for possible child meltdowns because they were just too overstimulated. The afternoon breaks really made a difference in the quality and feeling of our family’s Disney vacations.
