    Am I crazy? Im really considering about taking a one day trip with a 5yr, 4yr, 11month old to magic kingdom just for the christmas parade and then leaving the next day, would you recommend not doing this?

    Hi there, Tiffany!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Having traveled solo with children the same ages, I can only relay my experience.  I have never gone with all 3 for just one night, but it may be worth it for you if it is something you really want to do!  Only you know your children and how they might tolerate a busy day. The shortest trip I ever took with my own was 3 days.  I think what it really boils down to is having a realistic expectation.  In other words, be prepared for issues, crowds and unexpected events, and decide if you would enjoy yourselves either way.  The only downside I see would be a desire to stay longer once you're there!  Good luck deciding, Tiffany.  I hope this helps. 

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
