    Sandra Asked

    we already have reservation for nov 19 thru nov 23, family of 4 (2 kids: 12 and 4), we are planning to see all 4 theme parks in 5 days, it is our first visit.. Do you think will be enough days? and what we most need to see there. thanks

    Hey Sandra!  Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World Vacation!  November is a great time to visit the "Happiest Place on Earth!" I do think that five days will be ample time for visiting all four theme parks. If you will be visiting a park on your arrival or departure day, then I would recommend Disney's Animal Kingdom for that day. I find that we are able to experience all of the main attractions and shows in approximately six hours. Because you have one older and one younger child, you may find certain attractions that your four-year-old may not meet the height requirement. Disney provides families in this situation with a Rider swap option, allowing one parent to wait with the younger child while one rides the attraction with the older child. The parents can then swap places and ride the second time with a minimal wait. Just ask the cast member at the entrance of the attraction if you find you need a Rider swap. At Magic Kingdom, my "must see" attractions are "it's a small world", Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. At Hollywood Studios, make sure to experience Toy Story Midway Mania!, The Great Movie Ride, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Fantasmic!  Epcot "must see" attractions include Test Track, Soarin, Spaceship Earth, The Seas With Nemo & Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Mission:SPACE. At Animal Kingdom, make sure to experience Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King, and Expedition Everest. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical First Trip!
    Happy Planning,
