    Arriving 5/27-31 w/ DH, DD4, 2month old and myself. Staying @ ASM and need suggestions on how to make the most of a short trip.Will have free DP and only want to spend a morning and lunch @ HS. Main focus is on MK, AK and Epcot. Can't wait to go:)

    Hi Connie,

    For a short trip, I would not recommend cramming a seven day trip into three. I know I would melt down trying to do everything.

    If your princess knows about the trip, order the planning video and watch it with her. Have her pick three attractions in each park to see. Once you see those three attractions, everything else will be fine with her-I am hoping.

    You might also think about concentrating on two parks. Magic Kingdom and EPCOT could take up most of your time. Also, by concentrating on two parks, you can save money by not purchasing the "hopper" option of the trip. 

    If you do want to go to all four parks, take the smaller parks-Disney Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom-in the mornings and then go to the larger parks in the afternoon.

    Finally, plan for some down time. The pool at All Star Music is fun and it is nice to get away from the parks. You will be on a bus to visit all four parks so use a backpack to keep your hands free while taking care of the little ones.

    Have a magical vacation!
