    We are planning a trip to WDW in July 2013, staying at the BCR and will have 6 day prk hopper/wtr prk passes. Kids are 7 (g) & 11 (b) and we need help on structuring our days. We need to at least do MK & Epcot plus wtr prks. Any advice for must see

    Hi Joe!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  I think you made a great choice with the Beach Club Resort.  It is a fabulous place to stay in the summer with its incredible pool and it's close proximity to Epcot is a plus.

    With children of those ages, I would recommend something along the following:
    • Epcot
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom
    • Typhoon Lagoon
    • Magic Kingdom
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • Blizzard Beach

    Depending on how long you stay, you could visit the theme parks on 6 days and then visit the water parks on additional days. For example, with your admission tickets you could spend 9 days at Walt Disney World, spending 6 days to explore the 4 theme parks and spending the additional days at the water parks.  However, you can also visit a water park and a theme park on the same day. 

    I would visit Epcot before the Magic Kingdom, especially if your children have never been there before.  The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and the favorite park of many guests.  I think it helps to save the Magic Kingdom until the middle or end of a trip, but I know that's not always possible.  By the way, guests can easily spend two days in the Magic Kingdom and in Epcot.

    Our responses are limited in length, but I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
