    Hi, Our 1st visit, 2012, 7 days (did all parks + water)This trip to WDW (Apr1-4), we will skip Animal kingdom, no water parks. We have 2days PH for Thurs & Friday (might add sat) Any itinerary ideas, recommended shows?

    Hi Josh, 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will be taking place during your visit and it's one of my favorite seasonal events at the Walt Disney World Resort. The Topiary displays of Disney characters are amazing and provide for some fantastic "foliage" photo opportunities. The Festival will feature Outdoor Kitchens situated around World Showcase that offer unique menu items highlighting the flavors of many of the World Showcase Pavilions. 
    The menu listing for 2015 has not yet been released, but you can check out some of last year's offerings on There will also be a weekend concert series, where you can catch some of your favorite artists performing, special garden displays, and interactive play areas for the little ones. 

    I also recommend heading to Magic Kingdom Park to see Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. The enormous fire-breathing Maleficent float is spectacular! All of the other enchanting floats, music, and the appearance of many of Disney's beloved characters make this Parade a "Must-Do" on all of our visits. You can reserve a FastPass+ for viewing the Parade, however, no matter where you view it; it will be absolutely magical! 

    Happy Planning,
