    Mon, Nov 5th - Sun Nov 11, I have a 5yr old and at that time a 7 month old. We normally do park hoppers but this time we are on a budget and not doing that, so my question is what days should I do which parks? ie. less crowds, so we can have fun and relax

    Hi Tonya!

    My middle name is "Fun and Relax." If I'm not spending time looking to do one (fun), I can most likely be found enjoying the other (relaxing)  :-)

    So, sounds like you have a 6-night/7-day Fall vacation with 2 young one's? From past trips, the first 2 weeks of November are generally good times to visit Disney. It's right after Halloween, but before Thanksgiving, so crowds ARE generally smaller by comparison.

    I would do something similar to the following:

    Monday-Magic Kingdom
    Start your day off right by visiting the ever-iconic, ever-famous Magic Kingdom. Lots of age appropriate rides and events to experience here with your children.


    Wednesday-return trip to Magic Kingdom
    It generally takes 2 trips for my family to really enjoy Magic Kingdom. It is mega huge, and if you plan to catch most of the shows, parades, different dining, in addition to rides, this usually takes 2 days for my family (family of 4: Kids aged 8 and 4).

    Thursday-Hollywood Studios

    Friday-Animal Kingdom

    Saturday-day off. If you're staying close to a week, I always encourage guests to set 1 day aside where you don't make a visit to the 4 parks (weekends are typically busier at the parks). Use this time to enjoy the resort. All of Disney's resorts have ample things to do, including activities your children can get involved in on a daily basis. Or, use this as a "shop" day, where you can go to Downtown Disney or hit one of the other resorts (But sitting poolside at your resort with your feet propped sounds like the perfect R&R :-)

    Have a terrific time on your vacation!
