    Hi Doug. Love this panel However I 'm overwhelmed with all the info. so my? is going for a week ( early sat am to sat early eve) with 2.5 & 7 yr What would you reccomend for each day. 7 day park hopper. don't know which park to go to when.


    Without knowing exactly what days you are going, it is hard to recommend what parks on what specific days. But here is some advice, based on your length of stay, and your kids ages.

    • I would say that of the 7 park days, you should have at least two of them at the Magic Kingdom, possibly 3.
    • Make the Magic Kingdom your first stop.
    • I would make sure to spend at least one day each at the other three parks (Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom).
    • Make sure you take pool/nap breaks every afternoon. Even the 7 year old, who may not nap but can get some quiet downtime, will need it to get through a busy week
    • Don't go out late every night. For those that you do, make sure the parade/fireworks at the Magic Kingdom and the fireworks at Epcot are ones that you do get to see!
    If you send me more info about kids/gender/interests, as well as dates of your visit, and where you are staying, I can offer more specific suggestions on parks and dining.

    Have a magical vacation!
