    We are doing Magic Kingdom for a full day, but HS/Epcot in one day. Do you have any advice on what we should do/focus on at HS for the morning as well as Epcot for the pm? Timing suggestions? Also, which park to use Fast Pass at? Thanks so much!

    Hi Kara! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is almost here. Yay! I think you have a great plan to spend an entire day at Magic Kingdom Park because there is SO much to experience there! It is also doable to split the second day between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. You are in for a lot of FUN!

    I suggest arriving at Disney's Hollywood Studios before the theme park opens, so you are one of the first to enter for the day. This will help you experience less wait times and get much more accomplished while you are there. Toy Story Land is the newest addition to Disney's Hollywood Studios and the most popular. Your trip is super close now, but if possible, try to get a FastPass+ for any of the Toy Story Land attractions, then ride the other two rides in that area first thing in the morning. Once you are done exploring Andy's Backyard, visit the other areas of Disney's Hollywood Studios and use your other two FastPass+ selections.

    Epcot is a food-lovers paradise, especially with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival taking place, so I vote you park hop over to Epcot in time for lunch. As soon as you use your third FastPass+ in Disney's Hollywood Studios, get on the My Disney Experience mobile app and make a FastPass+ selection for an attraction in Epcot. The most popular attractions are Frozen Ever After, Soarin' Around the World, and Test Track. If you see one of those available, definitely grab it! If not, there are other attractions in Epcot that should still be available that day. My family likes to eat at the different Outdoor Kitchens for lunch, then make reservations for a Table-Service restaurant for dinner. After dinner, we continue exploring World Showcase because evenings are absolutely gorgeous around World Showcase Lagoon!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Kara! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
