    What are the best times to visit each park? I know when I went last time I felt like we would have gotten more out of Epcot if we would have gone in the afternoon instead of the morning

    Hello, dear Nicole!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Congratulations on doing your research before you get to the Walt Disney World Resort! You're going to have a wonderful time! 

    Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite Theme Park, so I like enjoying it from the moment it opens until it closes. Sometimes I go back to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, my Disney Vacation Club home, for a nap in the middle of the day, but I never miss the Happily Ever After Fireworks Show

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park even more fantastic in the early morning since the animals at Kilimanjaro Safaris are more active. Rivers of Light: We Are One is a great show to end a day at this Theme Park, so I suggest pacing your plans so that you can enjoy a full day there. The Nomad Lounge is a FANTASTIC location to spend a few hours sipping delicious drinks during the afternoon! 

    EPCOT, on the other hand, is another story. To me, this Theme Park is way more interesting in the afternoon. I, personally, like to combine a lazy pool morning with a calm EPCOT afternoon! 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is a little bit trickier, as it has TWO fantastic evening shows: Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. If you're a Star Wars fan like I am, you'll want to visit this Theme Park twice so that you can enjoy the two shows!

    I think it's also wise to arrive early to make the most of your time at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Shows like Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! and Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage are fantastic to rest during the day, for example. And don't forget to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at night, too! It's awesome! 

    I hope you have a lot of fun at the Walt Disney World Resort this March, Nicole! Let us know if you have more questions. We'll be here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
