In our experience (we've only been to WDW twice but DL numerous times) we like to take advantage of the extra hours and feel you really get a lot done and less crowds during that time. So we usually go to whatever park is open early and end at whatever park is open late. MK we stayed until 1am one time and it was fantastic! No one was there and everything was a walk on. The days that didn't have e  More...
We have gone for 2 weeks the past 2 years and love being able to stay for so long.  Here's my suggestion for 10 days:  Animal Kingdom - 2 days (many will say it's a 1/2 day park, but there is so much to do here if you just take your time, especially with those 2 little cuties of yours!)  There are adventures you can do and earn badges, there's a great dig site to visit and several good shows, don't miss Festival of The Lion King!  Hollywood Studios - if you are going during a non busy time, in my opinion, 1 day is plenty, especially if you go from open til close, but you could take it at a slower pace and spend 2 days here.  EPCOT - is definitely a 2 day park, in fact, if you have 3 days,  I'd do that.  Epcot is like 2 parks in one, Future World and The World Showcase; I LOVE The World Showcase, it represents countries from around the world and each country has so much to offer, so don't rush through.  Buy the kiddos passports before entering The World Showcase and have each kidcot area stamp  and sign their passports, that makes it more fun for them, they can be purchased at most gift shops and are about $7 or $8 each.  EPCOT also has so many dining options, you need to eat a lot here!  Magic Kingdom is easily a 2 day park, IF you are going during a busy time, 3 days would be perfect.  Make sure to set up your FP+ for MK rides and HS rides.  If you have any specific questions, ask away.  Oh, and hit a water park, they are worth it, I think Typhoon Lagoon is the better water park.  You should also look into a special event, I'd recommend The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage (look it up on Disney's website or allears.net)  You won't regret doing it!! Don't worry about the rain too much, go to the Dollar Store and buy ponchos (they are pricey in the parks) and be prepared for short showers (they don't last long and most likely won't happen every day), rain can clear out the parks some, but the true Disney warriors wear ponchos and carry on :). - DizneyGirl  605.7 #8 7:00AM
It looks like you'll be there during EPCOT's Food and Wine Festival, I haven't had the opportunity to attend this, but I highly recommend it from what I've read and other MWers that have been can tell you more! - DizneyGirl  605.7 #8 7:04AM
Great photo and welcome! You are going to love DW and you definitely have enough days! I would do 2 ak, 2studios, 3mk and 3 Epcot. How long will you be there? Any down days? Any dinning ressies? Are you only doing the parks or venturing off to water parks or Disney quest? There is so much great Dinning in the parks and at the hotels surrounding the parks. Bring ponchos, sunscreen and be prepared for it to still be warm during the day. Have a great time✨ - mmddgp  414.3 #16 7:40AM
You are all amazing! Thank you so, so much. This information is extremely helpful. We have been laying in bed all morning looking at Disneyworld videos. You have all helped with the excitement in this house. We will be in Florida for 3 weeks and will be spending 2 weeks in Orlando and 1 week in Tampa. We are looking into a cell phone plan that let's us use our phone so we can use Mousewait while in the park. Thanks again for everything. The countdown is always the hardest part but seeing all the joy of Disney through all your eyes over the past year has really helped make the time fly by. Have a magical day everyone. - CanadianDisneyNuts  3.0 #35666 10:12AM
There is wifi in the parks!! It's awesome!! I was able to use my phone while there last year.(we are from the west coast of canada) - fluffandstuff  14.7 #7343 12:17PM
In our experience (we've only been to WDW twice but DL numerous times) we like to take advantage of the extra hours and feel you really get a lot done and less crowds during that time. So we usually go to whatever park is open early and end at whatever park is open late. MK we stayed until 1am one time and it was fantastic! No one was there and everything was a walk on. The days that didn't have extra hours we would just go with the flow of where we wanted to go. After you are there and see what there is to do and what you want to do you can kinda get an idea of where you want to spend more time. I feel like EPCOT is huge and you may want to go 2-3 times where AK you may go 2 half days and be content. But it depends on your interests also. We plan to go in January and now we have little kids so we plan to spend 3 morning/afternoon at AK since they love animals and zoos, a lot of the time at mk because that's where they can ride most rides, and a few evenings prob at EPCOT (so we can have a few drinks) :) we don't plan to spend too much time at HS since there isn't too much for little ones. But again, that's just us. So we always have somewhat of a plan but then after a couple of days we know what we want to see more of and what we are done with - brodysmommy  335.1 #626 2:04PM

The very first part of September is not busy, if you went the 2nd week, you went a week too late to experience low crowds.  I found that only the 1st week in September is low crowds, the 2nd and after start picking up. - DizneyGirl  605.7 #8 5:26PM

But we will be there for 9 park days so even if the crowds are a little heavy over the weekend we have plenty of time to do it all. We are used to walk to wall people at times at DL so the crowds we experienced at WDW were never as bad.

Thank you for all the feedback. I didn't want to push my opinion if I was in the minority. I've always said your success of a day at Disney depends on the stroller. My son loves his stroller and it's always made our days easier. Especially when we're hurrying to something. He always took good naps in his stroller and he has a place for his own drink and snack. We usually bring lunch or at least snacks so we like the storage as well. I think I'll suggest she rent one on our busier/longer days - timonT  256.0 #26 2:09PM
