As much as I think I can brave four days straight visiting each park from open to close, I have learned over the years that a break during each day makes a dramatic difference.
As a college student, sleep is not used very often in my vocabulary but bringing that mentality to Disney does not work.
When I was younger, my parents would always suggest heading back to the hotel for a few hours during the day for a break before heading back to the parks in the evening. I was never a fan of this decision until we stepped off the buses that had taken us back to our hotel.
Whether it was the few times I crashed on the beds for a nap before I could kick off my shoes or the times my brother and I would sprint to the arcade, a break was much needed.
Somehow outbidding my older sisters, growing up we stayed at the All-Star Sports Resort on Disney property.
We enjoyed staying here not only for the rooms, but the pools they had and the arcade that was located near the food court in the lobby.
Although you may feel like you are missing out on the festivities at the parks, most Disney resorts provide great amenities to keep you occupied and well rested during a break before heading back to your favorite park for the night.
Plus, I am sure those legs and feet could use a break as well.
Would those of you who have been to Disney suggest taking a break during the day to rest? What do you choose to do during that time?
