    We are spending 7 days at WDW this summer. We are trying to decide if we should spend 2 days at Epcot and 2 at MK or If we should just concentrate one day of future showcase and spend an extra day at MK. The kids are 4 & 2. Suggestions?

    I'm glad to hear that you aren't intending to skip Epcot entirely; there is so much there for even young kids to enjoy!  That said, I would recommend you go with plan B: one day at Epcot with the extra day at the Magic Kingdom. 

    With kids ages four and two, I think you'll find that they will most enjoy the Magic Kingdom.  That's not to say that they won't also have favorite attractions at the other three theme parks, but the Magic Kingdom has such a high concentration of the characters they'll recognize and attractions they'll enjoy.  You should plan to spend at least a half-day in Fantasyland.  Use the other 1.5 Magic Kingdom days to tour the other lands, greet the characters (if your children are so inclined), and watch the fantastic parades. 

    At Epcot, you'll want to be sure to visit the Seas with Nemo and Friends as well as Turtle Talk with Crush.  There is also a pleasant boat ride in the Land Pavilion, appropriately titled "Living with the Land".  As for some of the other attractions in Future World (ie., Soarin', Test Track), you may be limited by height requirements, so you'll want to be prepared for that ahead of time.  However, there are plenty of exhibits to explore throughout Future World for the little ones, so it's definitely worth a visit.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
