    Hi Sandra!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel to help in your planning!

    If you've not yet done so, upgrading your tickets to Park Hoppers would be beneficial as you'll get to visit more than one park in the same day, making the most of a shorter stay. As a bonus, if staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you can also take advantage of Extra Magic Hours during your stay enabling you to enter a designated daily park 1 hour earlier than opening time or stay as many as 3 hours after park closing time!

    These recommendations are based on enjoying all 4 parks during your visit.

    For my family, nothing says "Magic" quite the way walking down Magic Kingdom's Main Street toward Cinderella Castle does! According to current park hours information, the Magic Kingdom park is open until 11pm on your arrival day so this would work very well for you to get the most of your day!

    On your first full day, I would recommend that you visit Animal Kingdom first thing in the morning, arriving for park opening. Kilimanjaro Safaris is fantastic & best ridden first thing in the morning. If you have a Park Hopper ticket, you can then head back over to enjoy more of Magic Kingdom as it is open until 10pm for the public or 1am if you're able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours (and your kids are able to stay awake late!).

    For your 3rd day, a combination of Epcot & Hollywood Studios would work well. Conveniently, the Friendship boat launches operate back and forth between the two parks approximately every 15 minutes via the International Gateway on Epcot's side and the main gates at Hollywood Studios.

    If you have the time on your final morning to do so, vote on the family's favourite attraction and pop into that park for one last bit of fun before you head out.

    Wishing you and your family a Magical time Sandra!
