    Which parks Jan 18th and 19th 2016 are best for a 5 yr boy and mom. this is our fist visit.which parks you suggest, also parks tickets cheapest place to buy, do i do 1 or 2 day? we r already bkd at the Dis resort trade show & mom n son want to visit pa


    The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday traditionally brings large crowds to Disney World, and January 18 and 19 should be no different. Nonetheless, I would suggest that you buy a 2-Day Magic Your Way Ticket and visit the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Magic Kingdom is home to the iconic Disney characters of Mickey, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, and the princesses. Hollywood Studios brings to life the more contemporary Disney and Pixar characters of Woody, Lightnin' McQueen, and Star Wars. Both parks will appeal to your son. Because it's your first visit, I would suggest surfing the Disney website to see what all the parks have to offer.

    Most conventions at Disney offer convention-priced tickets. However, if you need to purchase them, one of the best discount options is at Don't be fooled by discount ticket sellers along the interstate. I would recommend ordering them as soon as you can so that you can link them to your MY DISNEY EXPERIENCE account at to make a few FastPass+ reservations. You'll need them on such a crowded day as MLK Day.

    If you need help with FP+ selections, feel free to come back and get some opinions from our group.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation while at the Trade Show!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
