    Planing our first Disney Trip with a 5 and 3 year old. We want to see all 4 parks and repeat one. Would it be better to do Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios in 2 days?

    Hi John!

    You definitely want to save two days for the Magic Kingdom.  It's the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and definitely requires two days!  Another two day park is Epcot, though with young children, I suggest just spending one day there.  You can experience most, if not all, of Disney's Hollywood Studios in a single day; that's also true for Disney's Animal Kingdom!

    Since you wrote that it's your first trip, I recommend getting the book "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.  It's a great book for first timers with just the right amount of information without being overwhelming.  It's also a beautiful book full of color photographs.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
