    Hello panel! My family of 5 (2A, 3boys (15,9,6)) will be in WDW this June & I am thinking about adding water park tix. How much time would you suggest spending at each of the parks? Is it realistic to visit a water park & a theme park same day?

    Hi Amber!

    Walt Disney World with boys is my specialty!  I have two of my own and they LOVE going to the water parks!

    In our experience, as my boys have gotten older, they like to stay longer at the water parks.  So, we usually plan to get there at opening and leave sometime around 2:00 p.m.  We then go back to our room to shower and change, and we like to hit a park that evening.  Evenings in the parks are our favorite times to be there!  Especially in the warmer months, when the days can be rather hot.  We will make our FastPass+ selections for after 5:00 p.m., and that way we know we have at least three attractions ready and waiting for us!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip.
