    We are finalizing plans for our first trip to Disney next week. We've got 3 kids, ages 5, 7, and 9, and only 3 days to spend in the parks. Which parks would you recommend for those ages? Does MGM Studios have enough for those ages to make it worthwhile?

    I would recommend two days at the Magic Kingdom and one day at Epcot.

    The Magic Kingdom offers the most attractions for the young and young at heart. You should really give yourself two days in the MK in order to truly enjoy the magical experiences just waiting for your family.

    I'm not sure you'll be able to finish Epcot in one day but you'll certainly be able to enjoy a mixture of rides, shows and evening entertainment. Just make sure to see your Must See attractions first. Again, there are attractions for all ages in Epcot.

    It's difficult for me to suggest skipping two WDW parks but I'd rather that you really enjoy your vacation than find yourselves racing between rides and shows. You don't have to see everything. You can't see everything. Even if you stay a week! Just enjoy your family together in the Happiest Place on Earth.
