    We'll have 4 full days in WDW and stay in Wilderness Lodge - should we just do Magic Knigdom with our 1 and 3 years old, or also do Epcot, HStudio, or Animal Kingdom? Prefer to have my kids take nap back in resort - is this doable? Thank you!

    Hi Jenny!
    Good thinking to already be planning "nap time" into the schedule. It wil make everyone's life so much more enjoyable. The good news is that the Wilderness Lodge is a short 5-8 minute ferry ride to the Main Entrance to Magic Kingdom, so going back and forth for naps will be a snap.
    As for parks, I would definitely plan at least two full days in Magic Kingdom for starters. There is so much to see and the kids are so young, that you are going to want to pace yourself.
    On the third day, you may want to head over to Disney's Hollywood Studios. There, you will find lots of great shows for the kids including Disney Junior. For your fourth day, if the kids aren't up for a return to Magic Kingdom, you may want to hit Disney's Animal Kingdom. I would leave EPCOT off the itinerary for this trip, giving the kids a few years before hitting this park. It's a great park, but not for a 1 and 3 year-old, in my opinion.
    So, there you have it for now. If I can help in any other way, please let me know. Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel and I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
