    This is our first trip to Disney and we have purchased 4 day hopper passes and will be staying in the park? How much time should we allow to spend at each park with our 4 year old daughter?

    Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World vacation, Kelli! Your little princess is going to love visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  When my children were four-years-old, we always arrived at park opening and then headed back to our Walt Disney World Resort for a midday nap or break. We would then return to the parks in the early evening to enjoy the nighttime activities. The time spent in each park can honestly vary depending on the interests of your child, which park you are visiting, and possibly climate and crowd conditions. I have always found that we need a full day, if not more, at Magic Kingdom Park since there are more attractions geared for "little ones" in my personal opinion.  At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, we usually arrive at park opening and leave around 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. When my children were toddlers, we would plan to spend approximately six or seven hours when visiting both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions as your planning progresses. I would love to assist you in planning a magical first Walt DIsney World vacation, Kelli!
    Happy Planning,
