After 5 or 6 years in a row of touring 6 days straight from RD to fireworks, we decided a couple years ago to add in a down day. It has been the perfect addition to our trips. We generally stay at the Poly, so on our down day we usually go to a resort character breakfast or to Disney Springs in the morning for some shopping and then spend the rest of the day at the hotel. We just got back last week and DH spent the down day at the Oasis pool and I just stayed in the room and watched some TV and rested. It was fantastic.
