I live in Seattle & took my first trip to Dineyland as a baby. I finally made it to WDW for the first time in 1998 & Disneyland Paris in 2007. Finally, in 2012 I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member!

Hopefully you have hopper passes. I like to spend the morning at one park and the evening at another (following an afternoon break at my resort). I spend the majority of my time at Epcot (it's like two parks in one). I also like to visit Animal Kingdom a couple of times over my stay. If you take the time wander, there are so many great things to discover! Hollywood Studios is home to my favorite   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  602.2 #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  602.2 #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  413.9 #16 7:40AM
Very light crowds in the rain at WDW. My personal preference for park touring is MK on the first and last day, at least 2 days at EPCOT and a day for each at AK, HS and DTD. If we have more time than that, we usually divvy it up between MK, EPCOT or do something non-park related like resort touring (one of my fav things to do!), swimming, bowling, boating, biking, hiking, movies, mini-golf, etc. We hardly ever have more than 8 days so the latter stuff I just mentioned is still on our list of things to try at some point! - mrsincredible  809.1 #5 7:56AM
If I had 10 days I would build in a rest and relaxation day :) I would do 2-3 days at Epcot (though my husband would rather have his gums scraped...I don't get it!), then 3 at MK because my little one LOVES MK, 2 at HS and 1 at AK. I may get kicked out of MW for saying this but we do not love AK like everyone else does. We think it is beautiful and we LOVE expedition Everest and the safari and that's about it. We just got back from WDW and didn't even actually go to AK! My little one likes the rides at WDW and AK only has 2 she can/will ride and one of them is just like Dumbo at MK...just our opinion...many people LOVE that park!! I haven't ever experienced the rain stopping many people lol most just throw on the ponchos and keep going! I hope you have a WONDERFUL time!! We had the most magical trip ever last week and I hope the same for you!!!! - brittandkell  372.7 #525 8:28AM
Rest and relaxation days at WDW are never overrated! 👊 - mrsincredible  809.1 #5 8:30AM

Hello & welcome to the FLip side! I also live in the Seattle area and grew up going to Disneyland. My first couple of trips to WDW were very overwhelming! My best advice is to not get too hung up on comparing the two and appreciate WDW for what it is. Epcot and Animal Kingdom are my favorite parks because they are so unique to WDW. Plan on spending lots of time there! Being a Seattle native, the F  More...
Hi and welcome! I'm from England so the Florida weather is very different although I have to admit I love it ! I am a notorious non- planner although FP+ has changed that slightly. I am lucky to be able to visit at least once a year so I usually get to do the things I miss on one trip on the next! Even after so many visits though I have not seen or done everything WDW had to offer and of course there are always new attractions and experiences. I believe the maps are available on line both to order and to view. I would decide what things you really want to see/do and plan around those. Also depends on the crowds as to what you can fit in. If you want table service you maybe a bit late to make reservations, although there always seem to be walk ups to be had. I would get the My Dusney Experience app if you haven't all ready - invaluable for info and planning. Wifi is free in the parks and resorts. If you can, mickeys not so scary Halloween party is not to be missed! I have no doubt you will absolutely love it! Octobers almost here! Hope that helps - rink2  76.9 #74 12:11AM
Thanks for the suggestions! I did just download the app and its great! I'm used to rain so I'm actually hoping for some and maybe lighter crowds :) - randirella  305.7 #765 8:54AM
Hello, and welcome! We live in Olympia, and we are also going to DW in October. We will be staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Florida is hot, humid, and mostly sunny. Be sure to bring sun block, and stay hydrated. You can always walk into any quick meal service and get free ice water. (Saves allot from paying for bottled.) They do have occasional heavy downpours with thunder and lightening, so bring light ponchos from the Dollar Store. You can buy them at the parks, but they cost several dollars. Oct. weather cools down a little. Mid 60s to low 70s at night, and low 80s in the day is the average. (The locals think that the 60's are "freezing"!) ;) If you haven't yet, plan and reserve those dining reservations now! Many restaurants book very, very quickly. DW is huge. Don't try to do everything in one trip. Relax and enjoy the little things as well, like the cool birds and beautiful flowers that we don't have here. You can create your own customized Disney World maps at this website... http://customizedmaps.disney.go.com - PixieDust76  79.0 #69 1:33AM
Wow- you're from Seattle too?! We are on Mercer Island and are very fond of the rain. Great idea for the ponchos! I have no idea where the dollar stores are here but I'll grab some ponchos :) - randirella  305.7 #765 8:56AM
