    How long does it take to tour each park?

    Hi, John!  This is the best question!  I hate to tell you, the answer to this is going to be vary enormously, so it's hard to pinpoint exactly how long it might take your family.

    The first thing that might influence how long it's going to take is the time of year you visit.  During peak seasons (holidays and mid-summer), lines for attractions are likely to be longer, and each park is going to take longer to see thoroughly.  If you're traveling with small children, that will also usually cause the visit to go a little more slowly, as you may make more frequent stops.

    On average, I would say that you could do most of Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingedom in one full day.  With the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, you could see a lot of those parks in one full day, but I would say if you had time, you really could use almost two full days to do them justice. 

    I hope this gives you a good idea when it comes to planning!
