    Hi Vicki!

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

    You are coming during a relatively quiet time at Walt Disney World, so I think it is not that important to visit a certain park on a certain day in order to help alleviate any crowd issues.  Thus I would plan on visiting Epcot first, then Disney's Hollywood Studios, then Disney's Animal Kingdom, and then the Magic Kingdom.  If you have any days left over, then return to your favorite park at the end of your trip.  If you don't think you can save the Magic Kingdom until the end then move it up, but keep it after Epcot.  I say that because it is hard for a young child to go from the Magic Kingdom to Epcot, because Epcot is more adult oriented. 

    Since it is your firs trip, I also recommend picking up the book "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.  It is a great book for first time visitors as it is full of information, but is not overwhelming.  It is also a beautiful book full of color photographs.  It will give you a good feel for everything there is to do at Walt Disney World.

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