    We're going to DW Feb 27-29th. I have a 2 & 3 year old. AK has extra hours on 27th and MK has an extra hour on 28th. We won't be riding any big rides should we take advantage of the extra hours or go to the other parks that day?

    Hi Matthew,

    Is your family a morning family?  If you are, the extra magic hours may be beneficial for you, especially for the Magic Kingdom.  With a 2 and 3 year old, you will all be able to ride a majority of the Fantasyland rides (those geared for younger children) before the park opens to the general public.  When we did that when our children were still in strollers, we would park the stroller in Fantasyland since it is a short walk from ride to ride in that area.  We still also always ride Dumbo first; and it has become a great tradition, even with a teenager in the family.  As for the Animal Kingdom, the rides that open early are more of the big rides, so I don't know if you would be able to take advantage of the benefits as much.  Maybe that would be a better morning to go to Disney's Hollywood Studios to be first to see Playhouse Disney or a chance to explore Future World at Epcot.
