    I'm considering moving my return flight home to an evening flight (6pm) in order to spend an extra 1/2 day at Disney.My daughter & I are staying at Coronado Springs.Considering spending a 1/2 day at either Disney Springs or Animal Kingdom-thoughts?

    Hi, Lora!
    Sneaking in an extra half day in Walt Disney World Resort is one of my more favorite ways to end a vacation!

    Earlier this year, my daughter and I discussed the exact same scenario. We love shopping and we didn't have time during our vacation to look at all of the Disney Springs shops. But we also are huge fans of Expedition Everest. Since our last day in town happened to include an early Extra Magic Hour, we decided to ride our favorite attraction for a full hour. We rode it in the front row five times in that hour and it was so much fun! I know we could have enjoyed the shopping, but our fun in Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be something we remember for a long time.

    I realize this is totally a personal opinion, but I hope it helps you with your decision! Let me know if I can answer any additional questions!
