    Hi Panel! Opinions:) Want to do MNSSHP with 2 & 5 year old; we get in 09/14 so could do it that day or 09/18 after Epcot. What do you think? Nothing else planned for day we arrive, flight at 7:30a in at 11:45a, HS next day. Thanks!!

    Hi Christina!

    This is a great question. I suggest not doing it on your first day. I suggest this, because you have pretty young children and you already have a busy day with an early morning flight. The party doesn't really get going until after 7 pm and you will definitely want to watch the special parade and fireworks. The party runs until midnight and then it can take some time to get back to your hotel. I know how hard it is for young children to take a nap on the first day of a Disney trip because they are so excited. Without an afternoon nap your children might be too tired to enjoy the relatively expensive party. Thus I recommend saving this fabulous event for another night on your trip. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
