    We are coming on Thursday to Orlando. We have two days at the parks. We will go to Hollywood Studios and MK. Which day is better to go to Magic Kingdom? I know that MK hours on Friday are 9-9 and Saturday it is 9-12. We are trying to decide which day?

    Hi Art!!  Greetings to a fellow Georgian!!

    It sounds like, from your question, that you have a two day, one park a day ticket.  Either day would be great to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Saturday morning are Morning Extra Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  This could factor into your planning if you are staying on the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Historically, the Magic Kingdom is more crowded on Saturdays, but it will be open until midnight on Saturday so if you can outlast the crowds the last couple of hours should be very manageable.  On the other hand, Friday is probably going to be less crowded, but it does close earlier. 

    My overall suggestion would be to go to the Magic Kingdom on Friday and stay there until they close on Friday evening.  Then I would get up at go to Disney's Hollywood Studios (at 8:00 if you are a resort guest) and stay there until park closing on Saturday.  I just believe you would enjoy your Saturday more being at a park with less crowds.

    I hope this helps and you have a magical weekend!!
