    Hi. I will be visiting end of March with my 5 year old son. We will be there 5 days. Where should we spend the bulk of our time? MK 2 days? Epcot? I was also trying to fit in Universal if possible. I have a 4 day park hopper pass.

    I suspect that Magic Kingdom will capture your son's imagination like no other park, Lisa.  With five days to explore the parks, I would recommend that you devote two of your days there.  I firmly believe that the other three parks each offer something unique to even the youngest guests and if it's possible, I recommend that you visit all of them.  If not, I think you'll find that he might most enjoy Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.  I really hesitate to leave Epcot out, though, because I know that my six-year-old son loves Innovations as well as The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion there.  Since you do have a park hopper, you could actually quite easily spend a bit of time in each park.  I can't speak to Universal; my family has always found so much to do at Disney that we don't leave!  Have a great trip.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
