    My family will be in Disneyworld from 4/26 - 4/28 on a make-a-wish trip for my daughter. We are very excited but also kind of overwhelmed about fitting everything in. Can we really enjoy 4 parks in 3 days- what do you suggest as a plan of action???

    Hi Vashni,

     Your Make a Wish Trip at Walt Disney World Resort is around the corner, I'm sure your daughter is counting down the days!  This will give you some much needed family time where you will make magical memories that will stay with you forever.  

    Given the fact you will be at Walt Disney World Resort for three days, it is important that you have a plan of action, so that you maximize your time on vacation.  Doing all four theme parks is reasonable, here is my suggestion for your family.

    Day 1: Magic Kingdom Park - This is classic Walt Disney World, I can't think of a better way to start a vacation than walking down Main Street U.S.A.  and seeing Cinderella Castle.  There is so much to do at this Theme Park, your daughter will absolutely love it!  

    Day 2: Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning, followed by Disney's Hollywood Studios in the afternoon.  I like going to Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning, because I have found that the animals are more active and we have had much more luck on the Kilimanjaro Safari early on than later in the day. After consulting the Park Hours and Updates, I would also recommend you take advantage of Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom - the Theme Park opens at 7:00am (on 04/27). 

    Day 3: EPCOT, and if you aren't exhausted, head back to Magic Kingdom Park one last time.  

    I hope you have a memorable time on your upcoming trip Vashni.  Please let me know if you would like specific tips for managing each Theme Park; I would be more than happy to help.
