    Coming 3/28-4/5 have 8 day base ticket. Want to spend 2 days each park. Want trip to be more leisure maybe 1/2 day at park. What is best order to make most of our time and not feel like we are rushing? Will be traveling with a 2yo don't want him to grumpy

    Hi Chad - I think you are already set up well for a relatively stress-free trip.  Two days per park sounds wonderful.

    I'd recommend that you hit the parks early, and go to your must-see attractions first, before they get crowded.  If your two year old is anything like mine, chances are you are already waking up early anyway!  Then, after lunch, head back to the resort to relax and let your child take a nap.  After nap time, relax by the pool, and then you can always head back to the park in the early evening if you'd like.

    The after lunch time is a great time for a break, because that's when it's the hottest, and when the crowds are usually the heaviest.

    As for order, I don't think it matters too much.  However, I wouldn't go to the Magic Kingdom first.  Your two-year old will like that park best, so to manage expectations, you should go there on the second, third, or fourth day. 

    Have a great vacation!
