    Going to Disney with kids (ages 4 and 6) for first time over Thanksgiving. We are going to be there for 6 days. Planning on MK x 2 days, AK 1 day, Epcot 1 day, HS 1day, and we were not sure where to go for final day. Either Epcot or HS for second day?

    Hi Eric!  Welcome to the Mom's Panel!  Congratulations on your upcoming Walt DIsney World Vacation! How exciting that you will be celebrating Thanksgiving in the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  Although Disney's Hollywood Studios is always at the top of my children's list of places to go on our Disney vacations, I do feel you can experience most everything in one day. I would recommend visiting Epcot for a second day. With that being said, I would personally recommend scheduling a non-park day in the middle of your vacation in lieu of a second park day at Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios with young children. I have learned firsthand that spending three consecutive days in the parks can be very tiring for young children. My family (myself included) really benefits from taking one day off from park touring, sleeping in,  and then enjoying our Disney Resort or exploring Downtown Disney at a relaxed pace. I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical Thanksgiving trip, Eric!
    Happy Planning,
