    Hi. We will be in Florida end of July/beginning of August. We will be on the coast but was checking on a possible one or 2 day visit to Magic Kingdom. What would be the best option for the best bang for our buck? And best way to do that?

    Hi, Angie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question! I think you have the makings of quite a pixie-dusted vacation planned! Having Walt Disney World Resort situated right within central Florida makes it very easy for families to combine a beach vacation and a Disney Parks vacation.

    If your beach-side retreat is not too far away from Orlando, then I highly recommend you visit Magic Kingdom Park for two days. There are so many amazing attractions, character interactions, shows, and parades to be experienced just in that park. It is so difficult to fit even half of them in on one day! I worry, too, that if you rush to try to fit it all in on one day, then you will be worn out and maybe miss the little magical moments that really define a Disney Parks vacation. Giving yourself two days to experience it all will help you slow down a bit and enjoy even the little touches of pixie dust with your family.

    Walt Disney World Resort recently enhanced the way Disney Theme Park Tickets are purchased. The price of a ticket is based on the day that you visit and on how many days you plan to go to a theme park. The more days you play, the less you pay per day. Also, if you can go midweek, that may lower the price. If you buy a 1-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket, then it will be good for that specific day you purchased it. If you buy a 2-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket, then it can be used on any two days over a four day period. I looked at July 30 as a starting date, which would give you until August 2 to use the other admission. So you could visit the park one day, have a rest day at the beach the next day, and then head back for more fun the following day.

    When you purchase your Disney Theme Parks Tickets, be sure to link them to your My Disney Experience account. Beginning 30 days before you plan to visit the park, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections. Some of the attractions are quite popular, so be sure and make some great selections that can help decrease your wait in lines. If you need some help picking FastPass+ selections, feel free to stop by again and I will be happy to help you!

    Thanks again for stopping by and let us know if you have any other questions!
