    My family's coming in Oct and looking for the best time in 2 days, looking to do the "not so scary trick or treating" and 2 day park hopper; at a loss from there. Myself, husband, our daughter 7, son 4, and my mother. All first timers! Help!

    Hello LeRonica! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Planning your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation can be an overwhelming experience. Fortunately, there are resources to help make the process a little easier.

    First, take a look at the planning guide provided by Walt Disney World Resort for all the ins and outs and options available to you for tickets, Resort Hotels and more.

    With only 2 days and so much to see and do, you're going to need to start early, stay energized and keep going (especially if you are planning on Park Hopping to all 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks).

    Stick to 2 Theme Parks per day(maximum) and begin your scheduling with planning the Specially-Ticketed Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party as your Magic Kingdom visit. Since Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is offered on Select Nights, you will know when to plan your Magic Kingdom day. Arrive earlier than the 7pm Start Time for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party to enjoy Magic Kingdom before the party begins.

    Arrange your other Theme Park visit for the other day and morning of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to schedule your plans around Theme Parks offering Extra Magic Hours for Resort Hotel Guests.

    Finally, remember that it is not how much you do while at Walt Disney World Resort, but the quality time you spend with those you love.

    Have a Magical First Vacation!
