    We will be landing at MCO at 10:30 on Oct.4. What would be the best park to go to that day? Thank you.


    You will be arriving on what is likely a very light day at the parks. Any of the parks will be a good choice. However here are a few thoughts;

    • The Magic Kingdom will have had morning Extra Magic Hours that day. So they might be proportionally more crowded than the other parks. This might suggest you choose another part that day.
    • Epcot will be in the very first week of the International Food and Wine Festival (started on September 28), so it too might have larger than average crowds.
    • The Animal Kingdom is only open from 9 to 5 that day, so you will have missed the best parts of the day (early am when the animals are most active) and won't get a lot more time in the park by the time you get there.
    So by process of elimination I would say that all other things being equal, I would go to Hollywood Studios that day. It will be open until 8 pm. But again, any of the parks would probably be OK from a crowd perspective.

    Have a magical vacation!
