    We will be at WDW 1/29 - 2/4. It's our 1st time and will have our 7 yr old daughter with us. We have a 7 day park ticket with a park hopper. How many days should we spend in each park? Thanks


    So with a 7 year old I think you will find that her interests are really very ranging. But still, there is more to do at the Magic Kingdom than any other park.

    I would say that of the 7 days, I would spend 3 at the Magic Kingdom, 1 at Epcot, 1 at Hollywood Studios, and 1 at the Animal Kingdom. That works out to 6 days, so you are probably wondering what about the 7th day?

    I would consider leaving either one day, or two half-days open to being more flexible. If you plan that free time for after you have had a chance to visit all four parks, you can get an idea of what park you might want more time in. Since I don't know your family personally, and especially your daughter, it is hard to know what she might like.

    However, if you don't want to leave it to chance, I would say that with a 7-year old, Hollywood Studios would probably merit the added day. Or if you write me back directly with some ideas of your family's interests, I could recommend where to use that added day.

    Have a magical vacation!
