    We are a family of 3 adults and 2 children, will be in disney world Dec. 15-21. What do you suggest as to what parks to see on what days. Any help would be appreciated. Also would like to know more or less how much spending money on average it would be?

    Hi Maribel,

    You will have such a wonderful time at Walt Disney World next month!  The parks are decorated so fantastic for the Holidays.  I would recommend taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours (EMH) if you are staying on Disney property as this will be a busy time of the year.  I would also recommend arriving at park open every day and riding the more popular attractions.  I am not sure when you are arriving on the 15th, and if it is late, I would advise going to Downtown Disney and exploring the resort.  December 16, I would go to Hollywood Studios as it is open to 11 pm with EMH.  Magic Kingdom is next with hours from 9 am to 1 am with EMH.  On December 18th, I would attend Epcot (8 am - 9:30 pm), and on the 19th, Animal Kingdom which is open from 8 am to 7 pm.  I would then go back to Magic Kingdom on December 20th, and Epcot on the 21st.  As far as spending money, this is entirely up to you.  Most plush animals range in price between $10-25 and a t-shirt is between $25-35.  You can find small items for under $10 as well.  I usually will tell my children that they can buy a small item from each park or one to two bigger items.  Please let me know if I can help you further, Maribel!  Have a magical vacation!
