    Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for writing!  How exciting that your first Disney trip is days away!  I'm a big fan of starting all "first-time ever" Walt Disney World vacations at Magic Kingdom.    In my opinion, walking down Main Street U.S.A. toward Cinderella Castle is the perfect way to start your magical trip.  I'm guessing that, especially with a six-year-old in tow, you'll want to spend two days at Magic Kingdom, so I'd save a repeat visit for later on in the week.  After a day at Magic Kingdom, I recommend allotting one day each for Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, and two days for Epcot (one to explore Future World, and the other for the World Showcase).  That leaves one additional day to return to whichever park you most enjoyed to experience some additional attractions, or repeat some new family favorites.  You are travelling at a great time of year, when crowds are moderate.  You should have ample time to enjoy all of Disney's flagship attractions.  You can enjoy the parks, in my opinion, therefore, in any order that your family thinks works best.  With seven days at Disney, you'll have plenty of time to explore Downtown Disney, the miniature golf courses, and/or a dinner show such as the Hoop De Doo Revue, or Spirit of Aloha Show.

    Have a magical trip!
