    Visiting WDW May 7-14 with 7yo girl, so excited! Planning on visiting each park once, and a water park, which leaves us with an extra day. Which park do you recommend visiting twice? Also, our flight leaves around 5pm on the 14, what should we do that day

    Hi Tara,

    The largest park in WDW is the Magic Kingdom and most people would recommend spending your extra day there.  I, however, usually plan a free day during our family's WDW vacations.  I make reservations at a resort for a late dinner and let my five year old daughter decide in the morning which park we are going to go to.  I do this so that we don't have to worry about missing a dinner reservation at a particular park.

    I plan this free day later in the vacation once she has been to each park once.  It adds a little spontaneity to our trip.  We often joke that once we are just going to go to which ever park bus shows up first at our resort, but we've never been able to see that one through.

    You never know how your vacation is going to go.  You might get a thunderstorm on the day you planned on visiting a water park.  Having the extra day may help you make up some experiences that you missed. 

    Have a great trip
