    We are coming to DW in March, and staying at Marriott. We arrive on Friday 03/06 to 03/11. We have two kids (4-year old & 15-month old). How can we divide the days and the parks to be visited in order to have fun together and don't overload the kids?


    First bit of advice: check with your hotel on what transportation they offer to get you to the Disney parks. In a past stay at a Marriott the transportation was primarily for other theme parks, not Disney parks. If you have your own car, no worries. Otherwise call the hotel now and find out what they do. Make sure to ask what the trip frequency is, and what they will charge, if anything.

    As for your 4-5 days of actual park time, here is what I would recommend;

    • Visit the Magic Kingdom on your first full day. 
    • Return that afternoon to your hotel for nap/pool time.
    • Return to the park in the late afternoon/evening.
    • On the next day visit the Animal Kingdom, and plan on staying through lunch. Return to your hotel that afternoon for relaxation and an early evening in to give your kids some much needed rest.
    • For your remaining 2 or 3 days of park time, you can either return to the Magic Kingdom, or try Epcot and/or Hollywood Studios. With younger children you may find that returning to the Magic Kingdom is more rewarding.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
