    We're arriving mid-afternoon 3/20 and staying until mid-afternoon 3/26. We have the park hopper option. We have the water park option, mainly for Disney Quest. Not sure if we will do Typhoon Lagoon. Could you please suggest an itinerary for a boy age 5?

    Hi Robert!

    It sounds like you are planning a great trip! Hopefully I can help you out with some details!!

    Personally, I think every Walt Disney World trip just HAS to begin at the Magic Kingdom - especially when you have young kids with you!! I would definitely plan to spend your first day there!

    After my Magic Kingdom day, I usually want to try and rest my feet a bit before tackling Epcot - so this is a great time to split a day between a theme park and DisneyQuest water park: Hollywood Studios & Disney Quest, maybe? Or perhaps Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon? The combination is up to you!

    The next day, I'd put on my walking shoes and head over to Epcot! Spend a morning in Future World and then head to "around the world" in the afternoon. Be sure to sample the cuisine and delicacies as you roam from country to country! If you are looking for a fun dinner, my son LOVES Teppan Edo and watching the Hibachi chefs!

    Day 4 might call for some Water Park fun, followed by shopping at Downtown Disney and a visit to DisneyQuest? Or if you're up for more park touring perhaps a visit back to the Magic Kingdom or other park at night.

    And then its time to tackle your last theme park! Have fun touring a park you haven't been to before!

    Your last day is great time to visit any of your favorites at the parks or catch up on something you missed! This is usually when we slow down a bit and really soak up the atmosphere and details of the parks!

    Hope this helps!
