    San Diego Zoo is a one to two day visit because it is so big. Plan to arrive early to see more animals active. Also, the zoo is located in Balboa Park which has many museums to enjoy as well. The Wild Animal Park is in North County so you have to allow about 45 minutes to an hour to get there. Once there, you'll want to take the ride through the park. A fun thing to do is schedule a 'behind the scenes tour' to get closer to the wildlife. Giraffes will eat out of your hand! See the zoo first; then the Wild Animal Park. We only last half a day there because of the long ride to and from the Wild Animal Park unless you do one of the special tours, then a whole day will be needed. I've enjoyed these parks with my children for many years and now take my grandchildren to them. The Zoo remains my favorite of the two venues. Have fun on your visit!!!

    Sounds like you've got most things covered. It's a touch out of date, but following article by San Diego native and guidebook writer Deb Hardin should give you loads more ideas! http://bit.ly/ic05sQ Unfortunately, you'll have missed the whale-watching season, as the area's famous gray whales will already have passed on their way northwards to summer feeding grounds along the Pacific Northwest coast.

    FYI, Disneyland is a 1 1/2 hour drive north of San Diego. I think 4 days for Disneyland is overkill. You will be theme parked out what with Legoland and Seaworld thrown in too. Though it's winter and temps could be cool, beach time is a must in SD. There is a local amusement park in Mission Beach called Belmont Park that has a great old wooden roller coaster plus other fun games/rides for all. The Wavehouse is a fun place for adults to enjoy a beer where the kids are welcome too. You can attempt boogie boarding on a simulated wave. It's got great views right on the oceanfront walk. Have a great time!
