    Have booked 6 days in early June. Have 3 kids (10,7, &2) plan on doing mk for 2 days. How much time should I plan on spending at the other parks? This is my first disney vacation. A little excited!!!

    Hi Melinda!

    Congratulations on your June trip!  For a first trip with kids that are the ages you mentioned, I agree that Magic Kingdom is likely to be a favorite, and two days sounds like a smart choice.  I would start my trip at the Magic Kingdom (day one), and then wedge some of the other parks in between a repeat visit.  I would allow for one day each for Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  Epcot is huge, and a day and a half is ideal, however, if you only want to tackle a few of the more popular attractions, a day will be sufficient.  I'm guessing your kids will all like the Seas with Nemo and Friends and Journey into Imagination.  Your ten and seven year olds will probably also want a spin (or two or three!) on Test Track!   I would leave one day "free" to either explore a water park, or go back to "re-ride" the attractions that top your family's list toward the end of your trip.

    Have a wonderful time!
