    Will be going to DW for the first time during spring break for my sons 6th bday. I dont know what to expect. I plan to visit 1 park per day, and have the quick service dinning. will arrive sat and leave thurs. any tips on what day to visit each park.

    Hi Ester,

    There are several schools of thought about the best order in which to visit each park. Some people with small children like to go to the Magic Kingdom first, while others like to "save the best for last" and go to the Magic Kingdom on their final day. Your view about this may depend on the personalities of your children, when your dining reservations are, and any special events you're experiencing. For example, if you think your son might like the Magic Kingdom best, you might want to save that for his birthday.

    Another way to decide which park to visit on which day is the projected crowd levels. There is an independent website,, that measures historical park crowd data and projects which park will be most crowded on which day. I would encourage you to go to that website and take a look at the "Crowd Calendar." This may help make your decision easier. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
