    Hi Kirsten, I'm planning on visiting Disney (for the first time!) with my daughter (10) and son (6) in April. We were thinking of only doing 2-3 days of Disney and was wondering what parks you think we should visit? Thanks!!

    Hi Stacey!

    How exciting that you're planning your family's First Visit to Walt Disney World!
    With a plan to spend 2-3 days in the parks, you'll definitely want to do a bit of advance planning. You might consider adding the Park Hopper Option to your park tickets. This will allow you the flexibility to visit more than one park in the same day.

    Magic Kingdom is an absolute must. There's no better park to please everyone in the family. From the classic attractions, to the Princesses, to thrill rides and more... you'll likely find yourself spending a least 1 full day, maybe even 1 /12 or 2 in Magic Kingdom.

    For a second park choice, consider Disney's Animal Kingdom. This is such a beautiful park and you'll find yourselves moving at a more leisurely pace here. Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition is an absolute must first thing in the morning. Stroll some jungle trails, take in a show and you may even find that by late afternoon, you're ready to go and explore another Disney Park for the evening hours.

    If your little man is a Padawan at heart, you may want to pop on over to Disney's Hollywood Studios first thing one morning to experience Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy. Another must-do here, Toy Story Mania!

    If you'd like more information or additional tips and dining recommendations, please feel free to write me back Stacey! I'd love to hear from you again soon!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you begin planning your visit to Walt Disney World!
