I need some info from those with experience please.
Although my DD has been to the ocean, she was young and would really like to see it again. I am currently planning a DL trip for March 12-16, 2008. I was thinking that since we have that whole week off anyway, we could leave a day early and go to San Diego first. Neither of us have ever been to San Diego. If we leave PHX at about 6 am we should be in San Diego by about noon. I was thinking that we could go to Sea World on 3/11, (figuring they're on Spring hours and should close between 6-8) we can check into our hotel after the park and grab a bite to eat. A good night's rest will be in order after traveling and playing all day. We can check out when we get up in the morning, grab some breakfast, head to the beach for a little while, and then head off to the zoo (which should also be on Spring hours and close around 4pm) If we head for Anaheim when we leave the zoo, we should get to the Desert Inn around dinner time.
So, what I need to know is if:
1) 6-8 hours is enough time to really enjoy Sea World
2) the beach is close enough to the zoo to warrant going there before the zoo
3) I should add another day to travel and go to the beach on the 10th.
Thanks in advance.
