    Doug I.-Thanks for answering my previous question. I will be traveling with my husband, and two daughters (ages 8 and 5). How long should we plan to spend at each park if we have 4 whole days?


    So based on this and the last question, I would suggest that you have two paths to follow;

    The first is assuming you are set on going to all four parks. You will have to get the Park Hopper feature, and from there I would plan on spending;

    • 1/2 a day in the Animal Kingdom (morning)
    • 1/2 a day in Epcot (afternoon/evening)
    • 1 day in Hollywood Studios
    • 2 days in the Magic Kingdom.

    The second is assuming you are OK with missing a park or two, to save them for your next trip. If you did that you can skip the Park Hopper feature, spending;

    • 2 days in the Magic Kingdom
    • 1 day in Hollywood Studios
    • 1 day in either Epcot or Animal Kingdom.

    I think either plan is a good one. Assuming you are going with the first plan, I would suggest you do it as follows;

    • Day 1: Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • Day 2: Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • Day 3: Animal Kingdom (am) / Epcot (pm)
    • Day 4: Magic Kingdom (all day)

    You may want to mix up the order of the days, based on Extra Magic Hours, but this could be a good plan to use going forward.

    I am ready for your next question!

    Have a magical vacation!
