    About how many days does it take to go thru each park, not water parks? I will be there from a Sat to Sat.

    Hi Melissa:

    This is going to be a tough one to answer, especially without knowing your traveling party's ages and interests, but here is my opinion on what works for my family, which includes two boys, ages 8 and 6. 

    Start with the assumption that it's next to impossible to "complete" Disney World in just one trip.  There are so many different rides, shows, attractions, and experiences to take in.  For my family, my ideal vacation would be six Park days, with two days each dedicated to Magic Kingdom and Epcot and one day each dedicated to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.  I would also try to dedicate another day to enjoy Downtown Disney and have a spare day to lounge around the pool.

    If you are at the Parks for a full week, you will have plenty of time to take in a lot from each Park, especially if you can dedicate six Park days.  Play some days by ear.  If you feel you've seen enough of Epcot after one day, perhaps add a third day to Magic Kingdom or a second day to Hollywood Studios. 

    My best advice is to not put too much pressure on yourself and enjoy that week-long vacation.
