    I would like to plan a trip with just two parks? What would be the best way to go about it?

    Welcome to planDisney Hallie! We are so glad you stopped by with your planning question. Only two parks is a tough decision, which two to choose from the four. Luckily I have tried a bunch of two-park combos and we loved all of those trips. 

    November is no doubt my absolute favorite month to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I may be partial because I have always visited during my fall break as a child and now with my family. It also could be that my favorite festival is right at the end of its run. The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival dates were just announced recently and it is right on schedule for you to get a taste of what it has to offer. From July 27th through November 18th this festival offers the finest foods and beverages at any of the EPCOT festivals. This is where I will start my recommendations. The best combination for first-timers is EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park. Both are quintessential Disney experiences in my opinion. Epcot is a great park to walk and enjoy the World Showcase and the countries that are represented. Magic Kingdom has all the nostalgic vibes for me. Walking down Main Street U.S.A. with Cinderella Castle as the backdrop, that always was a lasting image. If you are looking for a place to start planning your visit, find out what's new on the Vacation Planning Page. Here you will find the list of places to stay, theme parks, and shopping while planning your visit. If you just need to buy tickets and make park reservations. I would download the My Disney Experience App, it is the ultimate tool for planning your visit and very useful during your visit as well.

    Now if you have fans that love a particular galaxy far, far, away I may have a second opinion on my recommendation above. Disney's Hollywood Studios would replace Epcot in this different scenario. As a child growing up a Star Wars fan, I always had dreams of being on one of those planets, in no way did I think it would become a reality. When you enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge you are transported to Batuu. Which is mostly a safe part of the galaxy. Unfortunately, there is always the First Order to deal with so look out for Kylo Ren and Stormtroopers searching for Resistance sympathizers to take into custody. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is like being inside the movie. It is a full movie experience. 

    I hope this information is helpful when you start to make plans for your visit this November. If you need any other planning advice do not hesitate to make your way back and ask me a question and I will be happy to help again. 

    Have a magical day,

    Jeremy A.
