    We will be taking our 1st trip to WDW in 2 wks. My children's ages: son (11yrs.), son (7 yrs.) , daughter (6 yrs.). Make A Wish has given us 3 days @ WDW. How should I divide the time between the parks & still be able to go to all 4 parks?

    Hi Cody!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    I would suggest the following:
    • 1 full day in the Magic Kingdom
    • 1 full day in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • Morning in Epcot and afternoon in Disney's Animal Kingdom

    The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and easily needs a full day, if not two!  Epcot is the other multi-day park, but Epcot is not always a huge hit with children.  Thus I suggest spending just a half a day in Epcot instead.  Disney's Animal Kingdom is a beautiful park, but has a reputation for being a half day park; thus a lot of guests leave in the early afternoon making it a great park for you to visit then.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has a lot to offer guests of all ages.  Be sure to head to Toy Story Midway Mania first thing in the morning.  Also, if you have any Star Wars fans, head over to the Jedi Training Academy in the morning and sign up for one or all of your children to fight Darth Vader!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
