    coming for short (unfortunately) stay Nov 27--29; staying at Caribbean beach resort with 2 kids 12 & 8 yr., plan on doing MK on the 27th, and epcot the 28th; do you think a meal at AK would be feasable in that time?(no time 29th) thanks!

    Hi Kim,

    In my opinion anytime at Disney World is better than no time at Disney World. It will be a quick trip but I have done a number of those this year and was amazed at how much we were still able to squeeze in.

    While it is possible to hop over to Animal Kingdom for a meal one of those days, I would advise against it. Magic Kingdom and Epcot are two large parks. Epcot is the largest for a guest to cover in area and distance. There are so many great things to see and enjoy in the World Showcase countries, on top of the exciting attractions, shows and games in Future World. Magic Kingdom offers the largest number of attractions and shows and easily takes up a whole day. Both parks offer a number of delicious restaraunt options. By staying at the park the entire day, you will be able to get the most out of the limited time you have, however if you decide to travel to Animal Kingdom for a meal, you will lose at least three hours between traveling and eating. Don't forget crowds are often heavier at this time and this could also effect your travel time between parks.

    Stay at enjoy your time where you are, and save Animal Kingdom for your next visit.
