    We are 2 families of 8 people visiting WDW for the first time from 17th Feb thru 21 st Feb 2013. We have the 5 day base ticket and will be staying at the Pops. Any suggestion as to which park we should visit on these dates.

    Hi Tenzin! Wow your trip is coming up soon and I am sure both families are getting very excited!

    You don't mention if you have park hopper passes with your tickets or not. Park Hopper passes allow guests to start in one park and then move around to others in the same day. The other thing to consider is if you are a Disney resort guest as these people can enjoy the Extra Magic Hours in the parks both before general entry or after general park closing.  I will give you what i would do under both situations.

    Resort Guest without Park Hopper:
    17th-Magic Kingdom, staying late with Extra Magic hours until midnight
    18th-Hollywood Studios, staying late with Extra Magic hours until 9pm
    19th-Epcot, going early for Extra Magic hours starting at 8am
    20-Animal Kingdom, going early for Extra magic hours starting at 8am
    21-Magic Kingdom, going early for Extra Magic hours starting at 8am

    Resort Guest with Park Hopper:
    17-arrival day then head to Magic Kingdom for late night Extra Magic Hours
    18-Epcot then head over to Hollywood Studios for their late Extra Magic Hours
    19-Epcot for early morning Extra Magic Hours then take boat and head to Hollywood Studios
    20-animal Kingdom for early morning Extra Magic Hours then head to Magic Kingdom
    21-Magic Kingdom early Extra Magic Hours then departure

    This is just a guide and feel free to go and do what your family is finding fun at the time. Don't restrict yourself to a schedule where you can't deviate and enjoy all there is in the parks!
