    Is 5 days enough for the first time visitors with 2 kids, ages 5-8.

    Hi Elena,

    Thanks for posting your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel! 

    In my personal opinion, you can never have enough days to explore all that Walt Disney World has to offer.  There is so much to see and do!  However, that being said, I think five days is a great length of stay for the first time visitor.  That gives you one day to spend at each of the four Disney theme parks and one remaining day to spend enjoying Downtown Disney, a Disney water park, or the lovely amenities at your Disney resort.  I suggest you spend the third day of your vacation outside the parks.  It's nice to have some down time right in the middle of your vacation.  You don't want you or your children to get too fatigued so pace yourselves. 

    Let us know, as your planning progresses, if you have any additional questions with which we could assist you.  My friends and I here at the Moms Panel would be delighted to help!
