    We have 2.5 days at WDW & are staying at the Polynesian. Kids are 8.5 (boy), 6.5 (girl) and 4.5 (boy). We'll do MK the 1st full day, but should we do AK or HS the 2nd full day? Kids like Star Wars/Toy Story, but no one is obsessed with either.

    Hi Catherine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled to hear that you are staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort!

    Given the exciting new attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios, I suggest that you spend your second full day there. Definitely use your FastPass+ selections to reserve ride time windows for attractions. With the ages of your little ones, I suggest that you do Toy Story Mania!, Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. Depending on the courage of your youngest, you may also want to do Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Be sure to check the height requirements of each attraction!

    When you prepare to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, know that there may be a boarding group process for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. With this process, your entire party must be in the park (past security and scanned in at the entrance) to join a boarding group using the My Disney Experience Mobile App. I suggest that you arrive at the park at least 30 minutes prior to park opening, perhaps sooner, to make sure you are in place to secure a boarding group exactly at park opening. Be sure to check the park hours for the dates of your visit. And, make sure that everyone in your party is connected through your My Family & Friends List in My Disney Experience. Know that boarding groups have filled within minutes of park opening. Once you receive a boarding group number, you will receive a notification when it is time to return to board the attraction. I suggest that you do Disney's Hollywood Studios on a full day since your boarding group time may be later in the afternoon or evening.

    Review the attractions list at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Avatar Flight of Passage is stunning but check the height requirement. You may need to try to make a FastPass+ selection for Na'vi River Journey instead. When my girls were the ages of your children, they adored Kilimanjaro Safaris, so be sure to experience that! Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park is a gorgeous park and I think you can have a wonderful time for half of a day.

    Catherine, if you have not considered it already, I recommend that your children try Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Our girls loved learning to wield a lightsaber and felt pretty fierce battling Darth Vader. Sign-up as soon as you can at park opening!

    Magic and memories,
