This summer I'm going to orlando and me and my family want to go to Busch Gardens, Disney theme parks, Blizzard Beach, Universal Studios and Island of Adventures and I'm staying 11 days and I want to know how many days should I stay in each park.

If you've never been to any of the parks before, I'd suggest six days at Disney (one at each park, with an extra day at Magic Kingdom and extra day at Epcot), three days at Universal (getting a park-to-park ticket). Add one day for Blizzard Beach, and one for Busch Gardens (get up early for that drive), and that brings you to 11 days.

I agree with Robert!

11 days in Orlando… Nice vacation by the way….
And thanks for vacationing in the USA.

I would recommend 1 day at each park….. 4 Disney parks, 2 Universal, 1 Busch Gardens (I really enjoy this park and think it does not get enough love and attention). Busch Gardens is about 70 minutes from Orlando….

So we are at 7 days right now…..

I like Aqautica for a water park but if I had to pick a Disney water park I would go to Typhoon Lagoon…

Now at 8 days.

Here’s the thing, you need rest days also…… You will do a lot of walking, your feet will be damn tired…. So you have to plan some much needed rest days also….

Day 1 – Park Day
Day 2 – Park Day
Day 3– Rest day
Day 4 – Park Day
Day 5 – Park Day
Day 6 – Rest Day
Day 7 – Park Day
Day 8 – Park Day
Day 9 – Rest Day
Day 10 – Park Day
Day 11 – Park Day

Now you have 8 park days a 3 rest days… The water park day can be also used as a rest day.

I agree with Brian, you need to include some down time away from the parks to recharge. But that doesn't mean you have to just sit by the pool, check the NBA schedule to see if the Magic are playing, take your family and do a round of mini golf. I enjoy going to Kennedy Space Center and then down to Coco Beach for a few hours.

But, for myself tis is a must, you need to get away from the crowds and parks and just re-group and prepare to do it again.

Or Take a day off for a visit to Downtown Disney.

This will also save you some monies on your budget. Less days at the parks, so less tickets to purchase.

But you do need some down time....
