3. There is a lot of it
Four amusement parks, two water parks, four golf courses, two shopping areas, 31 hotels, a sports complex, a lake, two major shopping areas, a Cirque du Soleil show and 341 restaurants: there is a lot to do at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you can manage to be bored there, you are definitely doing something wrong.
You can have a good experience at Disneyland in two days. Three days is better, five days is too long. Five days is a starting point for a trip to Walt Disney World. There is enough to do to easily keep a family entertained for a week or more. Plus there’s plenty for different levels of fun. It’s not just the normal things you can find at a hotel either. In addition to pools and exercise rooms there is boating, golfing, fishing, a running trail, archery, and horseback riding.
Our family tends not to take advantage of all these options. We are happy to spend all day every day in one of the parks, but there are people for whom these other options are very appealing. I understand that. It is good to have downtime to relax and take it easy. There are so many ways to accomplish that at The World. In theory, someone could head to the Walt Disney World Resort, stay for a week, never set foot in one of the Parks, and still have plenty to do. That would never be true at Disneyland.
