My wife and my 2 kids (7 and 5)starting our vacation on April 9, 2011 to April 14 and I plan going to the parks 4 days(10 April to 13). But I don’t know which Disney World park to go to on the first day and the last day of my trip. Help me Dad.

I am a firm believer in going to the Magic Kingdom as soon as possible. I think it sets the tone for the whole trip. BUT, for your trip, I’d keep the Magic Kingdom until the last day. I’d start off at EPCOT, then do Animal Kingdom, then Disney Hollywood Studios (a Fantasmic night), finally the Magic Kingdom.

I know that’s a little backwards, but it’s the best plan for the projected crowd levels.
