    I'm attending a conference for 3 days in June at the Swan & Dolphin. My mom & 2 kids (ages 5, 6) will join me afterwards for 3 days. This will be my kids' 4th visit (but my mom's 1st).What general schedule would you recommend for a 4th visit at the

    Hi Heather,

    Thanks so much for your question.  How exciting that you’re planning a trip with both your kids and your mom!

    If I understand correctly, I think you’re interested in my recommendation about which parks to visit over the course of the three days of your stay.  Based on what you've told me, I'd suggest either one day each at Magic Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, or two days at Magic Kingdom and one day at your favorite of those other two parks.  My kids always like Magic Kingdom to be the first park they visit, so I’d suggest starting there.  

    No matter which parks you choose to visit, you'll want to have everyone choose some "must-dos" in advance so you can be sure your touring plans and FastPass+ selections include those.  If you do spend two days at Magic Kingdom, I’d recommend spreading out some of those top choices over the course of the two days so that you can fully enjoy the magic both days.

    Also, don’t forget to surprise your mom with a complimentary "First Visit" button to wear during your vacation!  I’m sure she’ll love the extra sprinkling of pixie dust.  Just pick one up from any of the Guest Services locations, which can be found outside all four of the theme parks.

    Wishing you a magical vacation you’ll all remember for a lifetime!  Please let me know if I can help answer any other questions as you make your plans.
