    I have 3-day park hopper passes. Is it possible to cram 4 parks in 3 days? MK is a one day on its own. I know nothing of the other parks. My kids are 3 and 5 so although I’m tempted to add a day, don’t think they can hang for 4????? HELP!

    Hi Daniella,

    Hakuna Matata! No worries...you've come to the right place! We're more than happy to help you as you plan a magical getaway to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    First, while it would be ideal to have a day for each theme park, you can absolutely visit all four parks in three days if that's what you'd like to do! With a Park Hopper Option ticket, I'd recommend one full day for Magic Kingdom Park as your family will find LOTS of attractions, character greeting opportunities, and experiences to enjoy there together. For your other two days, I'd suggest one day at Epcot (either one full day or two half-days) and half-days at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. There are some fantastic shows like Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical at Disney's Animal Kingdom, plus wonderful family attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris and Na'vi River Journey. At Hollywood Studios, you'll definitely want to visit Toy Story Land, which is fun for kids of ALL ages! There's also a new Disney Junior Dance Party coming this fall that I'm sure your kiddos would love.

    If you'd like to add a fourth theme park day to give you a little more wiggle room on your theme park days, feel free, but another idea is to schedule an "off" day in the middle of your trip. After a couple of jam-packed theme park days, my family likes to take a day off just to enjoy our Resort hotel and rest up a bit before enjoying more theme park magic and fun. We sleep in, swim at our Resort hotel, then enjoy a delicious dinner and fun evening visiting the different Resort hotels, Disney Springs, or Disney's BoardWalk.

    Let us know what other questions you have, Daniella, and have a truly magical vacation!
