Mom And Daughter Magic Kingdom Cinderella's Castle

    I have a 5 and 7 year old. We have seven days to spend in WDW in early September. We will visit all four parks: MK, HS, EP, and AK. How many days should we allocate for each park? Thank you!!!

    For kids this age, I would recommend two days for the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, and then a day for each of the other two theme parks, leaving you a day to do a water park, Disney Quest or Downtown Disney - or just relax at the pool.

    My kids could spend seven days at the Magic Kingdom, just re-doing all of their favorite rides, but I think two days should be enough to ride pretty much everything and see the shows and parades.  EPCOT is one of the parks we like to break into two days.  We'll usually cover everything in Future World, allow the kids to linger at some things (especially after Journey Into the Imagination), and pick a restaurant in which to have dinner.  The next day, we'll hit the things they missed or want to see again in the morning, then plan to spend the afternoon and evening in the World Showcase.  This gives us a chance to eat in another fabulous EPCOT restaurant, and we stay to see Illuminations.

    The other two parks we can get through in a day.  There are some things my kids won't do, however, so that might affect your timing.  My girls won't do Rock 'n' Roller Coaster or Tower of Terror, so that saves us a chunk of time.

    Have a great trip!
