    My family (husband, two kids age 5 and 7) are travelling in the fall for our first trip to WDW. Are we crazy for trying to do a 6 day park ticket - seeing a park everyday for 6 days? Also best parks for these ages? No water parks. Is 3 days too much at MK

    Welcome Dawn! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    WDW is the best place on Earth for having fun.You are going to have an unforgettable moment with your family.
    I wouldn't say you are crazy, because I would probably do the same thing! I agree that six parks in six consecutive days can be very exhausting, but depending on how you do it, things can work very well. I suggest you spend one full day at a park, and on the next day relax at your hotel in the morning and after lunch go to another park. Something that works for my family is two days of Disney theme parks, a break of one full day at the hotel and two days of parks again. I usually make a reservation for a Character Dining Experience for the day we will stay at the hotel and we also have some family fun by the pool. My little girl, who is 5 years old, gets really tired if we don’t have a break, that is why I always try to save some free time for her to chill out.
    Your girls will love all four Disney Theme Parks. Epcot is a sensational park, but can be very tiring for smaller kids. The area is big, you will have a lot of walking during your day. I suggest you start your day early, with a breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. This is a great place to meet our favorite Disney Princesses. They will come to your table for photos and autographs while you dine. A magical experience!
    I can never get tired of Magic Kingdom Park, it is absolutely my favorite park. The most wonderful and magical place I have ever been. But I think three consecutive days are more than enough for your first visit, I would say two days would be perfect. You can also reserve two days for Epcot, so that you will have time to visit calmly the World Showcase and its pavilions. 
    I encourage you to make your FastPass+ selections and dining reservations in advance. And get ready to have lots of fun!
    Come back again if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!
