    how many days does it take to experience everything at disney world

    Hi, Nicole!  This is a really tough question to answer!  Walt Disney World is not only four fabulous theme parks, but there are two water parks, countless restaurants, dinner shows, shopping, and more! 

    I am going to assume you are wanting to know how long it would take to experience everything at the four major theme parks, and even that is a tough question!  If you go during peak season, when park hours are longer, the lines are also going to be longer.  If you go during off peak season, when lines are shorter, park hours also tend to be a little bit shorter, so you can't get as much accomplished due to that. 

    I would say, in general, you should plan for one full day at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  By using the Fast pass system, you should be able to bypass the lines on even the most popular attractions, and that will help you get through the park a bit quicker.  For the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, I always tell friends and family to try and allow two days to do those parks - or at least a day and a half.  There is so much to see and do at both theme parks, that it's really tough to pack it all in with just one day - even using Extra Magic Hours.

    I hope that helps with your planning!
