    hi, I'm going to Disney end of June 2016. I was wondering how many rides I can realistically plan on going on per day. Keeping in mind the 2 hours for eating and wait lines

    Hi, Shayna!
    Thanks for checking in with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family is very focused on enjoying the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, so I may have some insight that helps you.

    When we plan to visit the parks, we always try to coordinate the park based on the ones that have early Extra Magic Hours. In our years of visiting, we have learned fewer guests wake up early, and that means we have a lot of easy access to our favorite attractions. We have had the chance to enjoy attractions three and four times in a row during those Extra Magic Hours. Once regular hours start, wait times increase. That's why we schedule FastPass+ for the first three hours of the park's regular schedule. In between our FastPass+ options, we'll eat a Quick Service meal and stand in line for at least one other attraction. By midday, we will have enjoyed five or six attractions. We often do an early table service dinner and try to snag an extra FastPass+ if we can. We rarely park hop because that means transportation time will cut into our time to enjoy attractions.

    By the end of a long and happy day, we tend to have enjoyed an average of ten attractions. But there may be days when we enjoyed more or less. We try to keep an open mind and search for fun that doesn't require very long waits. My family also loves to participate in extra experiences like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and Wilderness Explorers.

    I recommend letting your day go with the flow. Have four or five attractions you want to enjoy and everything else is extra. That will give you a stress-free, fun day.
