    We are coming to Walt DisneyWorld for the first time with 3 adults and 2 kids from May 19-22 what will the would be the best parks to go to? And can we bring in a backpack with snacks juice water and treats. Are the parks staying open longer then?

    I always struggle when answering questions about what parks to go to as I strongly feel that all four theme parks are equally enjoyable and fun to experience.  Depending on the ages of the children would depend on how much time in each as for younger children you can easily to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT on one day.  Spend a half day in each as they are easy to get to each other via the water taxi.  For younger children at least one full day at the Magic Kingdom will be a must.  For a first visit concentrate on a few important attractions in each park and get a taste of what you can do for a return visit in the future.
    You are allowed to bring backpacks into the parks with some snacks and drinks.  Remember that all parcels and packages will be searched at the gates so make them accessible for that.
    You can check the park hours by going to the website or clicking HERE.  Put your vacation dates in the box at the top and the hours will be shown.
    Have a great vacation!
