    My mom and I are taking my 7 yr old son to WDW Mar. 24-30. We arrive10:15AM and depart the 30th at 8:50PM. We have park tickets for all 7 days. What would you suggest for the day we arrive and the day we leave to get the most of my son's first WDW trip?

    Hi Brittany!

         I am so excited for you and your family!  You are going to have an amazing time on your seven day Walt Disney World vacation!  I have recommendations for you for first and last day of your vacation based on the Park hours for that particular day.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort during your vacation, then you get a bonus as well with Extra Magic Hours (Walt Disney World Guests can get into the Parks an hour earlier or stay up to two hours later on certain days).  Here are my suggestions for you:

    Sunday, March 24th, 2013 Magic Kingdom has Park hours from 8:00 am to 1:00 am and Evening Extra Magic Hours from 1:00 am to 3:00 am

    Saturday, March 30th, 2013 Animal Kingdom has Park hours from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm with Morning Extra Magic Hours from 7:00 am to 8:00 am

    I hope that your son's first trip to Walt Disney World is truly magical for him!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
