    When on holiday in Florida, do you like to get to the parks for them opening and then leave when you've had enough, or do you arrive late and stay until the parks close?

    Me? I like to burn the candle at both ends and arrive for around opening then don't leave until they throw us out
    We rest when we get back home and thrive on adrenaline while there.

    We always do a couple of full days at each park and then after that we will almost always be at park opening but may leave earlier if we are eating elsewhere or have something else on. We did around 5 epcot and 5 or 6 mk days last year and probably 2 or three of each if those days were full.
    First and last days are always park opening to park closing!

    We rarely stay late at the parks. Obviously we do wishes and since most of the time we are there during either the Halloween period or the Christmas period we are there late for the parties. We also don't normally go out of our way to watch Illuminations, but if we happen to be attending Party for the Senses then we will watch it then.

    Wow, that's a tough one. My answer: it depends. A few years ago, I would go all out and go commando. There right after opening and stay all day long and let me tell ya, I plan around EMH, so those were really long days.

    However, now, I just go with the flow. I do some early morning and some late nights, just not both......am too old.

    I think it depends, sometime we go there first thing in the morning then back to the hotel and go to another park for dinner and few ride.

    At times we go to one park and get there afternoon (usually we at water park in the morning)

    We're early birds anyway, so we usually get up and out early - far too early on our first 3 or 4 days, thanks to jetlag! Last year we were ouside IHOP at 6am on our first day and at MK for EMH at 7:30am! We will make sure we see each evening parade/fireworks at least once, but we usually have dinner or some drinks on most evenings. For us WDW isn't just about the rides and the parks - though I must say quite a lot of our evening eating and drinking can focus on strolling around the world in EPCOT :D
