    Already booked Disney vacation package at Pop Century (Dec 13-19) with my husband and 2 sons (10 and 15). First visit of the youngest one. I don't know which park should be the first to visit because it will be MK morning extra hours the day we arrive.

    Hi Elaine!

    This is a hard question. I love to go to the Magic Kingdom first, but the park offering Morning Extra Magic Hour can be more crowded than usual. If you have the Park Hopper option on your Magic Your Way ticket and you can be at the park as soon as it opens for Extra Magic Hour then I suggest taking advantage of it ad then hopping to another park around lunch time. 

    But if you don't want to hop (or can't) then I recommend going to Epcot on your first day. That is because some young guests like Epcot the least of the four theme parks. Going to Epcot first gives young children nothing to compare against as opposed to going to the Magic Kingdom and then going to Epcot. That said, my children have always really enjoyed the Future World portion of Epcot. Be sure to do Turtle Talk with Crush when you go; it is fun even for adults with no children. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
