    You guys are amazing, I don't know where I would be without this board. Will be at WDW for 6.5days in Dec w/ DS4 and DS1. Figure going to each of the 4 main parks once, any rec. for the other two days? also is there a service avail to look over a vac plan


    I think you'll find you'd like to go back to the parks on your two extra days.

    Generally, I advise people to allow one full day each for Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, and two days each for Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  However, given the ages of your sons, I think you may well find you'd like to spend all 3 days in the Magic Kingdom.  It really is the most classicly Disney of the 4 main parks, and it has by far the most to offer young children. 

    Epcot is huge and does take more than one day to properly see it all, but unfortunately it also as the least to offer young children.  Your boys may be very bored there for two days.  My daughters are 1, 3 and 5 and they tend to get a bit restless here.  There are plenty of things we can do to fill their time, but we are visiting more for ourselves than the kids.  We try to keep our Epcot time short and sweet, and let the girls enjoy the other parks more.

    If you'd like to do some shopping, consider spending a few hours in Downtown Disney as well.  There is a very cool Lego store that your boys may enjoy.
