    Hi, trying to get an idea of what parks usually need more time spent. I think epcot is the largest but may not necessarily have what we need for a 4 and 12 yr old boy.

    Hi, Jessica!  The Magic Kingdom and EPCOT are the two parks we spend the most time in.  I have three daughters, ages four, eight and 17, and it just seems that those are the two parks where we find the most things to do.  You probably won't spend as much time browsing the shops in EPCOT as we do - it's one of the things my oldest daughter and I do while my husband takes the two little ones to see Off Kilter or Mo Rockin' - but there are still so many shows and interesting things beyond the rides at EPCOT, that it takes a while to see it all.  The Magic Kingdom - well, there is SO much there with the shows, the rides, the parades, the attractions - easily the park that takes us the most time.

    Animal Kingdom is a wonderful park, and I could spend a week just wandering the lush grounds, but we can generally be through everything the kids want to see and do over the course of a day.  Disney's Hollywood Studios is always a one day park for us.

    I hope that helps with your planning!  Have a wonderful vacation!
