    We are a family of 4 (6 and 9 year old girls) trying to plan a trip for a long weekend at the end of September. It will be our first time visiting Disney World. Do we have enough time to pull that off? What would you recommend for a 3 day trip? Thanks!

    Hiya, Matthew! Welcome, and thank you for your questions.

    Walt Disney World is a lot. With four theme parks, two water parks, a feast of dining experiences, plus loads of enchanting extras, three days is probably enough for the bare necessities, but let's talk about how you make the most of your time.

    First things first, if you can stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, that's your best bet for saving some time and energy. With Disney resort transportation, you'll have easy access to anywhere you want to get to on Disney property. Also, guests at Disney resorts will have EarlyTheme Park Entry, which gives you an extra half hour at any of the theme parks to snag a ride on a must-do attraction. Some resorts also offer Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, giving an extra two hours at the end of the day at select parks on select days.

    Next, make a list of your must-see attractions. Prioritize them, and use Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane to help you schedule return times for some attractions so you can skip the general queue. You may even want to consider adding the park hopper option to your theme park tickets. That way, if you hit the highlights you want to do in one theme park, you can hop over at 2 PM to another park and catch a few things there. 

    Don't forget, Matthew, you will need theme park reservations to go into a theme park, so make them as soon as you know your plans. And we are always right here to help with your planning!
