    Planning a trip for 10 days this summer with 8 and 6 year old. What itinerary would suggest? We have the 14 day pass. Thank you!

    Hiya Sarah!

    Welcome to planDisney! We appreciate you coming to visit us and I am so excited to help you! I have two littles that are almost the same age who would have LOVED to have a 10-day stay at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I consulted with them to help answer this question and together we have come up with some ideas. Of course, feel free to switch out the days as you like! Just to note, my family does not like to Park Hop unless it is to EPCOT for an evening dinner reservation. I would keep your days easy with a day in each Park, take a break midday for pool time, and shopping, and then return for a nighttime spectacular. If staying at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels or Disney Deluxe Villas I would make sure to return to the Park that will have Extended Evening Theme Park Hours as the Park will feel so empty and you can enjoy the Park at a leisurely pace. This can only happen if your kids get a good rest in the afternoon as I know mine won't make it too long without it.

    Day 1: You have arrived to the magic! Explore your Walt Disney World Resort and get ready for the week!

    Day 2: Magic Kingdom Park- We always start our holiday at this Park. Use Early Theme Park Entry and have fun exploring Fantasyland and then anything else your heart desires.

    Day 3: EPCOT- My family always gets extra tired walking through EPCOT even though it's one of our favorite Parks. I suggest not trying to do everything but focusing on a few countries in World Showcase and World Nature area. My favorite first ride at EPCOT is Soarin' Around the World.  My kids say don't miss Remy's Ratatouille Adventure!

    Day 4: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park- Don't forget while getting soaked to hydrate! Water shoes are a good idea for this Park!

    Day 5: Disney's Hollywood Studios- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and Toy Story Land are our family's must-do in this Park. We had a great time on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. The role of the pilot can be intense but my 9-year-old did fine with it with my shouted guidance while my 6-year-old aced it as an engineer. 

    Day 6: Disney's Animal Kingdom Park- Kilimanjaro Safaris is another must-do for little ones. My 6-year-old was very brave and made it through Dinosaur this year but she says she would recommend to close your eyes at any scary parts. 

    Day 7: Magic Kingdom Park- time to enjoy the attractions you didn't get to the first day as well as re-do the ones you enjoyed the most!

    Day 8: EPCOT- Time to explore the rest!

    Day 9: Disney Springs and Pool Day! We sleep in and just visit Disney Springs for some good food, souvenirs, and other free activities.
    Day 10: Repeat a Park you enjoyed the most or spend it in a Resort. Sometimes we book a dining reservation at a different Resort than what we are staying at just for fun. 

    I could say so much more but I have run out of space. Make sure to watch the podcast video I am linking to this that goes into more detail. You can also reach out to me directly if you want more suggestions!

    Happy Planning!
