    I am travelling with my husband and 2 kids (7 and 6) from the UK to stay at Saratoga Springs on 01 May 2012. This is our first visit to disney, we are staying for 10 days what are the things we must see and do?

    Hi Louise!  Wow, sounds like you have an awesome Disney vacation coming up. Ten days is a dream for most of us to be able to spend at Walt Disney World. This length of vacation will surely allow you to enjoy and experience so much of the magic.

    You will definitely need to plan at least one day in each park. If you get the Park Hopper option then you can move from park to park on the same day. Even one full day will likely not be enough to see every attraction but you certainly can see most.  For the park or parks that you want to do more in then plan another day or a half day. 

    In May choose one of the great water parks and spend a day relaxing and swimming. I love Blizzard Beach but that is because I love the "lazy river" ride and the ability to step out front and play some mini golf to break up the day.

    Use your first day to get to know the resort and relax and enjoy a nice dinner at one of the great restaurants on property.

    Take a day or a half day and head to Downtown Disney. That is where you will find great shopping and also some great recreation. Take the balloon ride up to see the best there is of Walt Disney World. A few hours in Disney Quest will thrill all the family with its interactive games.  In the evening take in a movie and dinner at the AMC theater or reserve some tickets to the amazing and wonderful Cirque Du Soleil show.

    You should have time to rent a Sea Raycer boat, swim of course, Pirates and Pals cruise, and explore the other resorts on property.  Make sure you are in the parks to see the parades and the firework shows that they all have with the exception of the Animal Kingdom park. As you can see there is sooooo much to do!
