    How many days do guests usually plan on visiting each park? We are trying to figure out how long of a hotel stay to book and about how many days rotr tickets.

    Hi, William!  Thanks so much for all of the wonderful questions you've been sending to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  We love helping guests plan all of the details of their trips to ensure that their vacations are practically perfect in every way!  It would be my pleasure to help you out with this particular question.

    No matter how many times I visit Walt Disney World Resort or how long I stay, it's never long enough!  Whenever I go back to real life, my magical Disney memories keep me longing to return to my home away from home.  There is so much to see and do at The Most Magical Place on Earth, and exciting new experiences are always in the works!  It seems that I always end a vacation with a list of things I want to experience during my next visit, and although I've lost count of how many times I've been to Walt Disney World Resort, I still have not seen it all.

    I would recommend spending as many days at Walt Disney World Resort as your schedule and budget will allow.  Having plenty of time will let you experience the theme parks at a more leisurely pace and take in all of those little magical details.  I would say that during an average vacation, my family and I tend to spend about five days in the theme parks.  When my children were younger, we usually spent two days in Magic Kingdom Park and one day in each of the other three theme parks.  However, the Force is strong in my family, and now that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is open, we tend to need some extra time at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    As you plan your vacation, be sure to do some resEARch on the Walt Disney World website to see which parks have the majority of your must-do experiences.  This should help you plan how to allot your time in the theme parks.  Also, if you purchase theme park tickets with the Park Hopper option, this will allow you to visit more than one park on the same day.  

    I know you will want to spend lots of time exploring all that the Walt Disney World theme parks have to offer, but don't forget to schedule a little downtime into your vacation as well.  My family and I like to plan one or two "off" days into our vacation schedule.  We use these days to sleep in and enjoy the pool and other amenities at our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  A visit to Disney Springs is another great option when you're taking a break from the park hop 'til you drop lifestyle.

    I hope that this information is helpful, William.  Stop back and visit us with any additional questions that you might have.  Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
