    My husband and I are planning on taking our kids, 7 (boy) and 4 (girl) next year on a 3-day Disney Cruise to the Bahamas and we would also like to stay 3 days at WDW as well. Since 3 days is really not a lot of time to visit WDW, what should we do/see, etc

    Hi Aleaha!

    How exciting! You are going to have an amazing time!

    If you only have three days at Walt Disney World, I suggest that you and your family make a list of the top five "must sees," top five "would like to see" and bonus activities to help you plan your trip. If you narrow it down to the top five, and make sure that you experience at least those "to dos" then you won't feel disappointed if you miss anything.

    Given your kids ages, I think that you should include Magic Kingdom on your list for the first park to visit, then Hollywood Studios. If you have animal lovers, you may want to consider Animal Kingdom on the third day, or you can repeat Magic Kingdom. 

    I suggest booking at least one character dining experience because kids really enjoy those. Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom is a great choice for meeting Donald and friends. If your kids like Winnie the Pooh, consider Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom.

    You will also want to view Wishes, the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom, at least one night because it is absolutely magical.
