6 Day Cut Throat Itinerary to Walt Disney World with Kids


Recently I heard a Disney representative speak at a conference and she gave a down and dirty Walt Disney World itinerary. If you have a week, this is for you. This is how you see every park at Walt Disney World with kids (or without) in six days, including Disney Springs. I’ve taken her (a Disney expert!) suggestions and added in a few of our favorite Disney sites too.

If you have extra time, you can head back into the parks for more shows, character meet and greets, ride your favorite roller coaster again, or book a special dining experience.

When you are short on time, or want downtime at the pool back at your hotel, this will work wonders for you. Seriously. This itinerary is a sprint, make no mistake. If you are determined to do it all though, you can do it. Just don’t forget to stretch and hydrate first.

If you have less time, check out our 3 Days in Disney World itinerary.
