    We have five days to visit Disney World. How much time is needed to devote to each park? Is it more than a day?

    Hi, Sandra!  It's hard to guess how much time it will take to see each park because it depends how many of you there are and what ages those people are.  I think most adults can get through each park in a day - a little shorter for Animal Kingdom, a little longer for the Magic Kingdom or EPCOT.  That may not get you to every ride and attraction, but you can certainly hit all of the highlights.

    If you are traveling with young children, plan on everything taking a bit longer.  We make more stops during the day for food, drinks, and the potty when we visit with our daughters.  It easily takes us a full day for Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios, and at least a day and a half for the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.

    With five days, I would probably plan one day at each theme park, and then spend the last day at the park we have the most left to see.  If you can park hop that last day, it's a good way to hit all of the things that you missed the first time around.

    Have a great trip!
