    Hi Ruben!

    Congratulations on taking your first Walt Disney World vacation,a lifetime of memories is waiting to be made!A few thing to keep in mind that I always tell first time visitors:

    -Walt Disney World is huge,don't try to do everything because it's just not possible. 
    Arrive at the parks early,the parks will be a lot less crowded allowing you to maneuver the parks more quickly.

    -Take a mid-day break.You can go back to your hotel or take a ride on the monorail.Visiting Walt Disney World requires a lot of walking and your vacation can become less than magical if you have some very weary children.

    -Take time to enjoy the magic! While it's easy to get caught up in the rush to ride all the attractions and see all the show,make sure to stop for those magical moments that happen everyday at Walt Disney World.

    Looking at your dates I noticed that Magic Kingdom has special events on three of the nights you will be visiting.  Disney's Nights of Joy and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party are both special ticked events that require purchasing a separate ticket.On these nights, Magic Kingdom will close at 7pm to guests that do not have a special ticket.I assumed you would not be attending these events, but if that is not the case please let me know by putting my name in the question. I added some park time on your arrival and departure days, but I can also help if you choose not to visit parks on these days.

    September 5 Magic Kingdom 9am-10pm Extra Magic Hours at 8 am
    September 6 Animal Kingdom 9am-6pm
    September 7 Hollywood Studios 9am-8:30pm Extra Magic Hour at 8am
    September 8 Magic Kingdom 9am-10 pm Extra Magic Hours from 10pm-12pm
    September 9 Epcot 9am-9pm
    September 10 Use this day to revisit anything you may have missed.

    I hope this helps with your planning, please let me know if I can help you with anything else!

    Happy Planning!
