    Hi, I'm traveling March 2013 to WDW with 5 and 7 yr old girls. We have 4 full days and staying at the Polynesian hotel. Which parks should I focus on for this first trip? And then how do I divide my time?

    The Magic Kingdom will be where you want to concentrate most of your time, as it holds the most rides and attractions for your daughters' ages, as well as the classic Disney experiences that guests come seeking. I usually recommend that visitors allow two full days to explore this park.

    For your other two days, I suggest that you take some time to look at the rides and attractions at each of the parks and decide what interests your family the most. Epcot is also a large, two day park, whereas Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios are easier to navigate in one day each.

    I have daughters that are 5, 7, and 9, and we would probably choose to forgo Epcot. While it is a great park and we do love it, it also holds the least amount of attractions geared toward that age group.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
