    We arrive Sunday (4/14) and are spending 3 nights at the Beach Club before moving off property. I have already decided to go to Epcot, HS and Magic Kingdom for our 3 days on property but am struggling with which order? Kids are 4,9,12.

    Hi Kristen,

    I bet you're really looking forward to visiting the most magical place on earth this spring! I'm really glad to hear that you'll be visiting Epcot during your stay because the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is definitely on my list of favorite Disney experiences! Not only is it BEAUTIFUL, but there are so many delicious foods to try and special events to enjoy, like the Garden Rocks Concert Series.

    I'm not sure if Sunday will be your first theme park day, or if you'll wait until Monday to visit the parks, but I'll tell you how I plan my family's park days, and hopefully that will help you choose! First, I try not to plan full park days back to back when I'm traveling with my whole family. In my opinion, you'll spend more time at Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot than you will at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so I'd encourage you to put that park in the middle to allow you to have a little bit of time to rest. However, with that said, I also like to visit on days when the parks are open longer, so that we can soak up the most magic and fun. Did you know that you're eligible for Extra Magic Hours on your check-in and check-out days as well as all of the days in between? With a three-night stay, you'll actually have four days to choose from to enjoy that great benefit!

    One other tip: Feel free to take advantage of Disney's Beach Club Resort's close proximity to the theme parks and head back to rest in your room or swim in the AMAZING Stormalong Bay during the heat of the afternoon. You'll able to come and go as you please from the same theme park during the day!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristen, and have a truly magical vacation!
