How many park days do you need for Disney World? This question has many factoring answers such as how many days you can take off from work/school, what your budget is and more. However, with limitations aside, read what you can expect to accomplish per how many days at Disney World. This will help you decide on the minimum number of park days to buy tickets. Disney World is home to 4 main theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
1 Park Day
2 Park Days
3 Park Days
4 Park Days
Parks: All 4 Disney Parks
5 Park Days
Parks: All 4 Disney Parks + more than one visit (or add a Water Park Day)
Attractions: More than 25
Shows: More than 10
Of course you can cram all 4 parks in 2 days and so on, however to enjoy each park I recommend using the base numbers above. Especially for first time visitors. These numbers are based on the opinions of Disney Parks Moms Panel, who are Disney experts.
Therefore, consider how many parks you wish to visit and top attractions & shows you wish to see. Match these numbers with how many days you will need to accomplish and that will tell you how many park days needed.
Guests also need to consider adding traveling days, traveling to and from Disney World, adding +2 days on top of above. I recommend not getting park tickets for travel days as there are many arrival day and departure day Disney activities to do without wasting a park ticket on half a day. Consider visiting Disney Springs with 21 free, or inexpensive things to do.
