    My family and I are visiting Disney next week..it will b the first time for my Hubby and 2yr. old son. We will be there for 5 days. He still takes a afternoon nap so how should we best plan our day in order to have no midday melt downs but still see all?

    First of all, Tom, it isn't feasible to see everything during a five-day trip.  I have visited many, many times over the years and still I haven't seen everything.  What I can recommend is a general touring plan that will help to maximize your time.  I strongly suggest getting an early start in the theme parks.  Arrive a good thirty minutes before the park opens and be among the first to get in.  In most cases, you will enjoy a good three hours or so of low crowds.  Enjoy the morning in the park and then head back to the resort for your son's nap in the heat of the day.  Once he is refreshed and recharged, you can head back to the park for dinner, more attractions and evening entertainment.  My preference for avoiding crowds is to get an early start rather than stay late, especially with kids.  I think that if you follow my suggestion, you will make the most of your time while still allowing for naps.  Enjoy!
