    I will be making our first trip to Disney world with my 4 year old son in late September and wondered how I am trying to figure out how to plan out our days. We bought 5 day pass, and I'm having a hard time picking which day to go to which park....HELP!!!

    Hi, Jennifer! Before each trip I usually start planning by looking at Walt Disney World crowd calendars online. Crowd calendars have each day of the month mapped out with predictions on which parks will have high crowds and which will have low crowds, and its all based on how crowded the parks have been historically. In my opinion, has the most reliable crowd calendars. Of course if you want to experience a special event that has a static date, like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, you will need to incorporate that into your plans as well. 

    I usually do two full days at Magic Kingdom, and one day for each of the other parks. I usually do Downtown Disney on departure day since I don't have a full day to work with. Since you have a 5-day pass, you could also plan to do it this way if you wish. 

    After you have your park days figured out, you can start planning everything else like dining, FastPass+ selections etc. 

    I hope this gets you started. If you have any more questions we'd love to help. Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
