    My family and I are going to WDW for the first time ever from Dec 9-the 16th. I have an 8 year old and a 6 year old. We are staying in the park and did not get a park hopper pass... do you have thoughts on an itinerary? We will have 5 days in the park.

    Hi Stacy,

    How exciting that you will be visiting Walt Disney World for the very first time and during the holidays which is most definitely the most magical time of the year!

    As this will be your first visit, I would recommend that you spend one full day at each of the four theme parks and then re-visit your favourite park on your last day.

    Here is my recommended itinerary:-

    Saturday 10 December - Epcot
    Sunday 11 December - Resort Pool/Mini Golf/Downtown Disney
    Monday 12 December - Magic Kingdom
    Tuesday 13 December - Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Wednesday 14 December - Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Thursday 15 December - Re-visit your favourite park

    I would also consider purchasing tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party for Sunday 11 December. This is a super fun special event which is a lot of fun for the whole family.

    I hope that this has been of help and wish you a magical trip!
