    Hello I will be going to Disneys Animal Kingdom for two days between 2/16-2/21. Is 2 days enough time to do this park? We want to do character dining. I would also like to get magic bands also. Is all this necessary??

    Hi David!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom, especially with the addition of Pandora - The World of Avatar, is an amazing experience, so you definitely want to have enough time to see everything!  Depending on the pace you are hoping to keep, I think that two days will be enough to see everything you want to see, especially if you take advantage of Extra Magic Hours and FastPass+.  My husband and I usually spend a day there and don't ever feel like we missed anything.  Our next trip will be our first visit together since Pandora -  The World of Avatar opened, so we will plan to spend a little more time there than we normally do.  

    For character dining at Disney's Animal Kingdom, I would suggest the Tusker House Restaurant, where you can eat African-inspired foods and meet Safari Donald Duck and his friends.  I love MagicBands and think they are super convenient, especially in the parks.  With MagicBands, you don't have to fumble around for a card in your wallet or purse when you need to check in at a FastPass+ entrance or, while you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, charge purchases to your room. 

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
