    Hi, I will be coming to Disney 3/31- 4/4 with a 2 and 4 year old. We will not have park hopper tickets just the one park per day ticket. Should we take adv of the extra magic hours for Magic Kingdom or stay away from that park that day due to crowds

    Hi Kelly,

    Although the Extra Magic Hours can bring more people into the park, personally I think if you plan your day out you'll barely even notice an increase in crowd levels. 

    With children these ages I would suggest getting to the Magic Kingdom right when it opens, and be sure to check out the list of Extra Magic Hour attractions, because not all attractions will be available at this time.  Make sure you see everything you want to see in Fantasyland first, because wait times tend to be at their peaks by late morning early afternoon.  

    It would then be a good idea to head back to your resort by early afternoon for a break and maybe a swim.  You can return later in the day or early evening to ride any attractions you may have missed.  We enjoy Mickey's Toontown Fair during the evening because the crowds are much less at this time.

    Have a great time!
