    We will be at Disney World with our children ages 6, 4, and 2 in June. We play to tour parks for 3 days. Which parks would you recommend we visit and for how long at each park? Thanks for your help!

    Hi Brian!
    It is going to be impossible to see and do everything in 3 days, so we should take " how long at each park?" out of the equation immediately. No need to put that much pressure on you or the family.
    My first recommendation to families, including my own, is to always start at Magic Kingdom! This is the park that started it all, and it has the most to do for your aged kids. There are so many amazing rides, shows, parades, fireworks, character meet&greets, and other things to do for all of you. I'm not sure of park hours for your trip, but being June, chances are the parks will be open late. That said, I would recommend a rest in the middle of the day (probably every day). Whether that means a pool break or just a rest back at the hotel, this will be necessary for everyone to be in the right from of mind for continued touring on days the parks are open late. For day 2, I recommend Disney's Hollywood Studios. Another great park for kids with lots of fun shows for them to see in addition to rides. On day 3, I would go to Disney's Animal Kingdom. I always start at Animal Kingdom in the morning, and then head to another park after lunch or so. Your kids can choose which park was their favorite, and you can head there for the remainder of your third day.
    I know these are just some broad strokes, but this is my general outliine and order of parks on a limited time visit. Please let me know if you have more specific questions, and I wish you all a Magical stay!! :)
