    Hi, we are visiting with a 6 and 4 year old. Which parks need the most time for their age group? Trying to figure out how to use our park hopper passes and where to go for a full day or perhaps just the first half of a day and somewhere else later. Thanks!

    Hi Shannon,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I definitely recommend devoting a full day at Magic Kingdom Park. You will be amazed at just how many attractions your little ones will be able to experience at the iconic park.

    Depending on how many days you plan to spend in the parks, I would allow ample time to fully experience Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. When visiting this unique park with exotic animals and amazing entertainment, we usually spend at least 6-7 hours exploring all that it has to offer. If you plan to incorporate all 4 theme parks into your trip, I would personally suggest splitting a day between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios based on the ages of your children. When park hopping, my strategy has always been to book our FastPass+ selections at the second park we will be visiting. 

    I hope this information has been helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to visit us again if you have any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Shannon!

    Happy Planning,
