    We are going to Disney for the first time and staying at a resort, doing a 5 day park pass. We have a 8 and 9 year old and are wondering which park we should double up on? We were thinking Magic Kingdom. We are not doing the hopper. Thanks!

    Hi Penny!

    I always recommend a double day at the Magic Kingdom if your schedule allows it.  It is my favorite park, so I like to start and end my trips with Cinderella's Castle.  There is so much to do at the Magic Kingdom, it is impossible to pack it all into one day.  

    My suggestion is to do all of your "must-do" attractions the first day you visit the park so that you aren't feeling rushed or anxious to do anything in particular on the second day.  If you are using the FastPass+ perk, pick three different attractions for each day.  If you end up doing more the first day, you can always change your selections for the second day on your smart phone or at the designated FastPass+ kiosks in the park.  

    Have a magical day!
