    We are taking our son for the very first time in January (he will turn 5 in March). We are doing a Disney cruise beforehand so I want to spend at least a day at Disney World but I'm thinking that might not be enough time. How many days are ideal?

    Hi there, Alina!

    Disney land and sea vacations are the BEST!  It sounds like you have an amazing trip in the works.  If you ask most of us on the panel this question, I know we would all say that there is never enough time at Walt Disney World!  Realistically, all of the four major parks are fabulous for kids and adults of all ages.  Outside of the major parks are water parks, Downtown Disney and so much more.  If you want a sampling of each park, then I would recommend a day for each park.  If you are looking for a shorter stay, you simply must have at least one full day at Magic Kingdom Park.  Feel free to write back if I can assist with more specific questions as you continue to plan.  I am happy to help.

    Until then, I wish you a truly magical vacation.
