    We will be visiting Disney in 7 days for the first time. Mom, dad, and daughter,5. What parks take two days to completely enjoy without rushing?

    Hi, Ami!  The two parks that I try to always squeeze in two days for are the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  There are tons of things to do at all of the Walt Disney World theme parks, but especially with children who might want to see something a second time or stop to get an autograph, it always takes us longer to get through those two parks.

    With EPCOT, you could probably break it into sections - doing Future World one day and the World Showcase the next.  Most of the rides are in Future World and most of the shows and cultural attractions are in the World Showcase. 

    At the Magic Kingdom, we like to try and get the big rides out of the way early the first day - Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain being two favorites.  Then we do as many of the other rides as we can.  On day two, we do the rides we missed, see the shows, and go back to the things that are family favorites, like Buzz Lightyear.

    I hope your first visit to Walt Disney World is simply magical!
