    First trip with my 3 & 6 yr girls. Thinking of only 2 days at parks, so Magic Kingdom for sure and possible Animal Kingdom for 2nd. Will 1 full day be enough for Magic Kingdom? Naturally my girls are very into all Pixar and princess stuff the most.

    Hi, Pam!

    Wow! A first trip to Walt Disney World with TWO little princesses in tow. What a special trip!

    If you are planning on two days in the parks, you might want to consider purchasing the Park Hopper Option for your upcoming trip. While you can surely plan around a visit that keeps you in one park each day, I do believe that you're going to wish you had a bit more time at Magic Kingdom. The Park Hopper Option will enable you to enjoy a great morning and afternoon at Animal Kingdom on that second day in WDW, while allowing you to enter Magic Kingdom for some nighttime fun. If you don't get to visit certain MK attractions that first day, or wish to revisit some new favorites (or if a little princess was too sleepy to stay awake for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular) you'll be able to do so with no worries or added stress.

    With this Park Hopper Option, I think that a day and 1/2 will be more comfortable for your tour of Magic Kingdom.

    Send more questions as you think of them, Pam; I'd love to help you plan your first family vacation to Walt Disney World! (So exciting!)
