10 Tips for Setting Your Disney Itinerary

3. Take an Off-Day: If you’re taking a long vacation, or have small kids, consider spending a day hanging out at the hotel pool. Having a break part way through your trip can be refreshing, and allow you to have more energy for the upcoming days. Don’t want to stay at the hotel all day? Explore Downtown Disney (soon-to-be Disney Springs) for a few hours. This shopping mecca has no admission, and can fill the day at a much slower pace than the parks.
