    How long, on average, does it take adults and teens to get through each park?

    I have to tell you, Lupe, that the goal is not simply to get through each park, but rather to soak up every last bit of the magic you can while you’re there! With that said, I can offer a little bit of insight as to how long you might plan to stay in each theme park.

    For my family, we like to allow two days in Magic Kingdom. We try to arrive as close as possible to the park’s opening and stay through the early afternoon. Sometimes, we’ll take a resort break and then head back to Magic Kingdom if we want to cross a few more must-do attractions off our list. If I had to assign a length of time to this approach, I’d say that planning on a solid twelve hours should allow you to experience most of the attractions. Allow more time if you don't plan on arriving at the park's opening.

    We approach Epcot a bit differently. We really like to peruse the World Showcase and wander at a slow pace. A full day, or eight hours, will allow you to take in most of the most popular attractions and experiences here. If your itinerary allows, I would recommend splitting this up into a few different visits.

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a big draw for fans of Star Wars. If that includes you and your family, you’re going to want to allow for at least one full day here, maybe two.

    I find that my family can enjoy much of what we want to at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in six hours or so. Pandora – The World of Avatar is a popular spot and definitely is a must do. It's especially beautiful at night. If you have the chance to experience that, I highly recommend it.

    I hope this guideline helps you plan a great itinerary, Lupe. Let us know if we can help further!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
