    This is my first trip to Disney with a 6 & 4 yr old. We arrivie in Orlando at noon on Fri and leave Mon at 6:30pm. I was planning on MK on Fri & Sat, Epcot/Hollywood Studios on Sun and Animal Kingdom on Mon. Do you think this is too much?

    Hi Jim! Sounds like you have a whirlwind trip planned! I often take shorter trips to Walt Disney World too, and you definitely can visit four parks in four days as long as you realize that you won't be able to do it all on this trip.

    If I were you, I would plan to visit Epcot on Friday, Magic Kingdom on Saturday, Hollywood Studios on Sunday, and Animal Kingdom on Monday.   Since you're arriving on Friday at noon, I'm afraid that by the time you get to the Magic Kingdom, it would be so crowded that you wouldn't find it very magical.  You can arrive at Epcot in the afternoon and still have plenty of time to experience many rides and attractions.

    On Saturday, plan to be at the Magic Kingdom before it opens, and ride Dumbo and the other Fantasyland rides as soon as enter the park. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how much of the Magic Kingdom you'll be able to do by arriving early.  Then you'll have a whole day on Sunday to visit Hollywood Studios.  If you finish HS early and have a park-hopper, you could always return to MK or Epcot to ride anything you missed the first time.  Finish your visit with Animal Kingdom on Monday. It is a smaller park so I think you'd have plenty of time to hit the main attractions before you need to leave to Orlando.

    Hope you have a magical first visit!
