    My husband and I just booked a trip to WDW for the end of the month(Jan) We have 4 full days. Is there a preferred order that we should attend the parks in? Is there one that will likely require more than a day? We do have the park hopper! Thanks!

    Hi Megan,

    The end of January is a great time to travel to Disney World, as the crowds are generally very manageable.  That fact should allow you extra time to see the attractions that you are most interested in.  It's not clear if your trip is a "couples" getaway or a "family adventure".  If you are travelling without kids, you could probably cover most of what you are interests you at the Magic Kingdom in one day. If you do have children, they may vote for two days (or more!) here.  Epcot's Future World has lots of wonderful exhibits and if you allow yourselves time to explore the countries and stop for a meal in one of them, I would allow for a day and a half.  The highlights of Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios can be covered (with moderate crowds) in a day or even a bit less depending on how may attractions/shows you pick to see. 

    Since you have the Park Hopper Option, you might want to allocate a 1/2 day for each of the theme parks to start with, and allow yourselves the option of returning to those parks and attractions you wanted to revisit or spend additional time in on your last two days.  Regarding which parks to visit on what days.  Some people have published that Magic Kingdom is busiest on Mondays and Epcot on Tuesdays, however, in my experience during the end of January, the crowd levels are manageable enough that sophisticated tourning plans aren't necessary.

    I hop you have a great trip!
