    Helen Asked

    hi TPlans advise take a mid-day break back at hotel 12-5 but if 20m wait for bus & 20 min travel each way is it worth going back to hotel mid-day? 2 kids 4 & 6 thanks

    It might be worth it, Helen.  Because your children are still relatively young, you might find that they tire easily.  Having been in your shoes, I can tell you that tired children tend to be cranky and touring the parks with cranky children is far from magical.  In spite of the travel time, you might find that taking a midday break at your resort for some quiet down time is well worth the hassle.  If you are really opposed to leaving the park in the middle of the day, I would advise you to keep a schedule that includes either early mornings or late nights, but not both.  Even if you don't leave the park in the middle of the day, take some time to recharge.  You can do that by enjoying a sit-down lunch in a quiet location or by visiting a lengthy nap-friendly attraction like Spaceship Earth, Ellen's Energy Adventure, or The Great Movie Ride. 

    I can tell you that my family did do midday nap breaks when my children were very young and I found it to be well worth it.  I hope that helps.
