    Going to WDW in early June with 2yr, 5yr, 8yr old and three adults. We plan on the following schedule, 1 day at DH, 2 Days at MK, 1 Day at AK, and one day at Epcot/DT Disney. Will this be enough or too much? What is the average time spent at each park?

    Hi Sam!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Generally speaking, I think guests should plan on 1 day in Disney's Animal Kingdom, 1 day in Disney's Hollywood Studios, 2 days in Epcot, and 2 days in the Magic Kingdom.  Of course that needs to be modified by the needs of the guest.  For example, I think Epcot is a 2 day park with one day spent in Future World and one day spent in the World Showcase portion of the park, but many young guests do not enjoy spending that much time in World Showcase.  Hence, some guests with young children, may only want to spend 1 day in Epcot.

    So I think your plan is fine except that I would plan on spending 1 whole day in Epcot and going to Downtown Disney on the day you visit Disney's Animal Kingdom; specifically I would be at Animal Kingdom when the park first opens and then visit Downtown Disney in the evening.  There are some great places to have dinner there.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
