    We are traveling to Disney for the first time with our kids, 8 & 5yrs old during the week of Thanksgiving 2012. I was wondering if one day per park is enough time (not including water parks) or if we should plan for 2 days to get through Magic Kingdom

    Hi Robert!!!

    Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World Vacation with your kids!!!  

    I would recommend spending two days at the Magic Kingdom due to the number of attractions and shows that are available for your entire family to enjoy!  The week of Thanksgiving will also be a crowded week so you would probably enjoy a second day at the Magic Kingdom!!  The only other theme park that I would possibly recommend spending a second day at (if you have an extra day) would be Epcot.  

    Please let me know if you have any other questions that I can help answer!!

    Have a magical day!!
