    Hi, this is our family's first trip to disney! We have 2 boys(5&7). We will be arriving on 5/21 and staying until 5/28. We plan on MK on5/27&epcot on 5/24 bc of char.dining. Can someone help with an intenerary?? thanks so much!

    Hi, Gabe!   Welcome to Disney World!  I hope your first trip to WDW is truly magical!

    Due to limited space, I am unable to type out a detailed itinerary.  I can, however, give you some basics!   With your travel dates, you will have 6 full days, plus 2 travel days.   Downtown Disney is a great way to spend a travel day, as there is no admission and so many fun things to do . . . shopping, dining, and even a movie theater!

    For your full days, I suggest 1 day for a water park, 1 day for each theme park, and use your last full day to either re-visit a park you want to see more of or simply enjoy your resort and swimming pool.   I like to make one Advance Dining Reservation each day, and this will help you form your itinerary.  

    I feel I should mention a few "don't miss" attractions.  I have a 6 year old boy, and no trip is complete without stopping at Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin and the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom, Test Track and Spaceship Earth in Epcot, Kilimanjaro Safari in Animal Kingdom, and Toy Story Midway Mania in Hollywood Studios. 

    I hope this helps as you put your plans together for your vacation.   If you have a specific question once you start detailing your itinerary, feel free to let us know!
