    Hello! I am planning to visit WDW with my 5 year old daughter Aug. 27 to Sept. 2. Is this a good time to go?Also, could someone give me a sample itinerary? Would you suggest 4 days of visitng the park and also including the waterpark(s)? Thank you!

    Hi Candia!

    This is a good time to visit except for the heat and humidity of a typical Florida summer. The crowds will historically be significantly less at the end of August compared to the peak summer month of July. Four days is good for a trip, as you can easily spend a whole day in each park. If you want to spend half a day at a water park then you might consider staying a little longer. It really comes down to your budget and how much time you can afford to spend at Walt Disney World. 

    I would suggest visiting Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom before the Magic Kingdom, because the Magic Kingdom is such a favorite with young children. You could save the Magic Kingdom for the end, but you might wish you had more time so I suggest visiting it by day 3 of your trip. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions!
