    My family will going to visit WDW for the first time on 11/17-11/20 and we will celebrate my daughter's 7th bday there. Her bday is on the 19 so I was planning to spend that day in MK but I saw that it's only open until 7pm. Will she enjoy Epcot too?

    Hello, Michelle!

    First visits are always full of magical memories, especially when celebrating a birthday. Since the Magic Kingdom closes early on the day you plan to visit, you have several options to make your princess' birthday full of magical memories. 

    Option 1: Plan to spend the day at the Magic Kingdom until it closes, and then park hop to Epcot. You could take a spin on Test Track before dinner and end the day with IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Keep in mind that you will need to add the park hopper option to your theme park admission ticket if you chose this option.

    Option 2: Spend the day at the Magic Kingdom and plan to have dinner at one of the monorail resort hotels such as Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. After dinner, grab a dole whip and head down to the beach to watch Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season. A great end to a magical day!

    Option 3: Purchase tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and enjoy the Magic Kingdom from early morning to late into the night. Enjoy some hot chocolate and watch it magically snow on Main Street, U.S.A. while celebrating your daughter's birthday and the magic of the season!

    I hope this helps you plan your daughter's special day. Be sure to pick up a birthday button so other Guests and Cast Members can join in celebrating her birthday! Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!

    Have a magical day!
