    My daughter is most interested in the princesses, so our 1/2 day is Hollywood Studios, MK day 2, Epcot Day 3, no park day 4 and MK day 5. Should I take advantage of Extra Magical Hours at AK on the morning of Day 3 and go on the Safari, dinosaur ride?

    Hi there Rebecca!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! It looks like you have a great itinerary planned for your first Walt Disney World vacation! I always suggest taking one day off from park touring to sleep in and explore several of the exciting activities that are available outside of the theme parks. 

    Extra Magic Hours is one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort! I would definitely recommend taking advantage of Morning Extra Hours, in order to experience Disney's Animal Kingdom Park.This unique theme park features exotic animals, beautiful landscaping, entertaining shows, and thrilling attractions. You will love Kilimanjaro Safaris and DINOSAUR! I also recommend Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Finding Nemo - The Musical, and Festival of the Lion King!  My family visited Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in the morning, and Epcot in the afternoon, a few months ago and felt we had ample time to experience everything on our "must see" list. I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write us back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Rebecca!

    Happy Travels,
