    We are planning a trip for 12 people (8 adults; 3 kids ages 2, 3 and 5; and 1 infant). We will be there for 8 days and plan to have a 6-day pass. Which park(s) should we double up on? Which should we skip (if any)?

    I would hate to skip any of the parks, especially with a six day pass!  There is a little something for everyone at each of the four theme parks - although I will admit, some have a little bit more than others.

    You will probably want to spend at two days at the Magic Kingdom. Especially with children this young, you might find that it takes a bit longer to get through things.  You have a lot of ride options with children this age, but they may also want to stop and say hello to some of their favorite characters, and you might spend a little bit of time in the Baby Care Center, where you can bring the babies for a bit of a break, a diaper change, and a comfortable high chair for a meal.

    EPCOT is another park that usually takes my family two days.  While there aren't as many rides for young children, my girls loved just walking around the World Showcase, listening to music, watching shows, and snacking!  There are some great rides here, but you'll have to be more aware of height restrictions.  Use the Fast Pass system here - and at all of the theme parks - to help alleviate the wait times.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom are one day parks for us.  As my girls get older, we spend more time at Disney's Hollywood Studios, but most of the time, we can see everything we want to see in one day.

    Have a great vacation!
