    Hi Stacey,

    It sounds like you have a fun-packed trip planned!  Six days is a good amount of time to be able to see the major attractions in each of the four main theme parks, one of the waterparks, spend a few hours at DisneyQuest and perhaps enjoy another recreational activity such as mini-golf.  However, I also strongly encourage to allow your family to take some time to enjoy what I lovingly call, "non-Space Mountain moments."  The reality is, even in two weeks, it's probably impossible to see, experience and do "everything."  Inevitably, someone will fall in love with a ride, and want to go on five times in a row.  Or, your child might be awestruck by the dancing water at Epcot, and want to sit and stare for twenty minutes.  My opinion is, let them indulge!  Disney is definitely exciting, but it's also a place where your family can reconnect during these crazy times, and remember what life is all about.

    It sounds like you have most of the key planning elements covered.  Advanced dining reservations are important for the restaurants you most want to visit.  I'd also recommend making a list of the attractions that everyone in your group wants to see, so that at least the top few are covered for each person.  Ensure that you allow for ample travel time between your resort, the parks and restaurants, as this something that tends to be left off "packed" itineraries.  Above all, remember that Disney can be a place that fills your photo albums with wonderful memories and stories that will last a lifetime.  Don't forget to find a bench, grab a Mickey ice cream bar, and take it all in!

    Have a wonderful trip!
