    I will be at WDW from June 4th through the 17th of this year. I will have a 10 day Base Ticket (no hopper). How do you suggest I break down the parks evenly? Which parks would you suggest I need that additional day if I visit two days per park? Epcot? MK?

    Hi Ryan, How exciting to have 10 days to enjoy Disney World! You'll really get the chance to take your time and immerse yourself in the Magic!

    Since you will have a full 2 days per Park, plus 2 additional days, here is what I suggest:

    Hollywood Studios: When you first arrive, spend a few moments looking at the Show Times Guide. Decide which shows you want to watch, and plan your days accordingly. Rather than spend 1 DHS day watching shows, and the other on the attractions, I suggest you evenly divide the shows between the 2 days, you'll have relaxing time built in to both days.

    Animal Kingdom: With 2 full days, you'll have a chance to really take in all of the "little extras" at AK. There's walking trails that you can view the animals, great shows & exciting rides. Maybe watch The Festival of the Lion King on one of your days, and Finding Nemo the Musical on the other one.

    Epcot: I'd plan on 1 full day in Future World, and the other in World Showcase (with a few rides from Future World that you may not have seen on the 1st day). Epcot has a lot of "little things" to explore, so you may want to return there for a 3rd day.

    Magic Kingdom: Similar to Epcot, you could definitely return for a 3rd day if you have really taken your time to thoroughly enjoy everything. Often times, people rush through, trying to be sure to hit all of the major attractions...and in doing so, they miss some of the magic.

    I do have another suggestion though. Since you are traveling in June, have you considered one of the wonderful Water Parks? With a base ticket, you can add just the Water Park option and visit either Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach during the day, and still visit one of the major Parks in the evening. Maybe see both of them on that Pass (spaced throughout the trip to break it up) and go watch fireworks in the evening at one of the Parks?

    Hope this helps and that you enjoy your vacation!
