At A Glance

The amount of time you spend at the WDW resort depends entirely on how much of it you want to see and how much you want to do. However long you spend at WDW you can guarantee that you won't have spent long enough there to see and do everything. At the top of each theme park description I've included a suggested amount of time to spend at the park, but these times are based on low season when the parks are relatively empty, and access to the rides and attractions is easy.

Generally most guide books will tell you that The Magic Kingdom will take at least one day to complete, Epcot will take up to two days, and Disney MGM Studios will also take a day. My experience is that whilst you can see the majority of the parks within the time period mentioned, you can also spend a lot more time in each park, and still have loads to see.

If time is short, it may be best to concentrate more on The Magic Kingdom and Disney MGM Studios than Epcot, though Epcot is well worth visiting. Attractions like Pleasure Island and The Disney Village Marketplace open well after the major theme parks have closed, so it's quite possible to visit these two attractions on the same day as visiting one of the major parks.

If you're planning to visit the Disney Water Parks, such as Blizzard Beach, River Country, and Typhoon Lagoon, it's probably worth spending at least half a day there, but since each one can also be fairly relaxing, it's worth going when you want to chill out a little.

The Pony-Trek / Trail ride only takes 45 mins to complete, however you need to be at Fort Wilderness around half an hour before the ride starts, and unless you know where to go in advance it's going to take a little while to find, so this activity can rapidly eat into a half day of your holiday, particularly if you're staying at the AllSatrs resort and use the recommended transportation to get to Fort Wilderness.

The time you spend at WDW will also depend on the tickets you have bought. If you've bought a 5-day world hopper pass, and intend to get the maximum possible use from the ticket, you'll be spending up to 12 days visiting the various Disney parks, though you'll be able to hop between parks, and won't be restricted to only visiting one park per day.

Don't forget as well, that Busch Gardens, SeaWorld and Universal Studios will each take the best part of a full day to do the parks justice, so between these three parks, and the 5-day world hopper pass, you could easily spend a full 2 weeks at the theme parks in and around central Florida, without even venturing deeper into some of the other very attractive areas of Florida.

The Kennedy Space Centre will also take the majority of a full day's visit, particularly if you plan to take either of the two sight seeing trips, and maybe take in one or more of the IMAX theatre films that are laid on.

If you're planning to visit the Keys, driving from the Orlando area, you're going to want to allocate a full day for a reasonably leisurely drive there, and the same amount of time to drive back again, without considering how much time you want to spend in the Keys.
