    Hi! Doing the Princess 1/2 this month. Going to MK on Friday. We'd like to go to AK and Epcot Sat/Sun. Any recommendations when we should do either? Should we save Epcot for Sunday since the race ends there or will it be crowded? I'd prefer not to park hop

    Hi Rebecca!  Congratulations on your upcoming race!  The Princess Half Marathon is one of my favorites!  I think that either way, you will be fine.  Epcot is a huge park and absorbs crowds really well.  The crowd level on Sunday is actually predicted to be drastically lower than on Saturday at the entire Disney World area.  If I were planning for myself, I would go to Epcot on Saturday and Animal Kingdom on Sunday.  This is my reasoning:  I spend way more time at Epcot than I do at Animal Kingdom.  I am thinking that after running the half marathon on Sunday, I will probably get tired after a few hours of exploring the parks, so I would feel that I could do and see everything in a shorter amount of time at Animal Kingdom.  I could literally walk around Epcot and all the countries for days!  So, if it is was me, I would choose Saturday for Epcot to be able to spend the time I want browsing around the park.  But again, I think either  way would work!   I hope this helps!  See you at the race!
