We stayed on site and found the parks here better than Disney. A lot of additions since our last visit, 6 years plus, Harry Potter being the popular choice. Theming in the park is excellent and character interaction great

I would recomend 2 days at least for Magic Kingdom Epcot 1 day each for Animal Kingdom Disney's Hollywood Studios Universal Islands of Adventure That will give you plenty of time to have a few days to relax and also to re-visit any of the Parks you enjoyed and want to experience again :)

I wonder why a family who wants to Hang out by the pool would pay to go to Vegas to hang out in 110-120 degree F weather instead of the beaches and pools in Orange country and San Diego. But since you have tickets out of LAS. You have no choice Now SF Monterey Pismo Beach La Vegas would be better so cut a night off from SF I guess ( I would say Vegas is fine for 2 nights ) Did you miss our top questions. We have a highway one primer that talks about the coastal drive
