    My friend & I are planning a quick trip in Oct for 3 days. The plan is one day at Sea World, one at MK & one at AK. We are each bringing a child - 2 and 4 years old. Will there be enough AK time to catch a 7pm flight home incl trip on Magical Ex

    Yes, you can definitely plan on Animal Kingdom for your departure day. With a 7:00 pm flight, Disney's Magical Express will schedule your pick up at your resort around 4:00 p.m. I would suggest heading back to your resort no later than 3:00 p.m.

    To see the Animal Kingdom's highlights, visit Kilimanjaro Safari first thing in the morning. Then head to the first or second showing of The Festival of the Lion King. Before or after the show, let the kids visit the characters at Camp Minnie-Mickey.

    I would suggest ending your day with a stop at The Boneyard playground. Allow 30 minutes to one hour as this is a kid favorite! As a bonus, the exercise should tire out the kids for the flight home!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
