    Hello! 2 questions: r there special glasses to view fireworks through? Heard about them not sure. 2: have 5 days to do all parks +WP. Obviously not going to do all. Any tips for 2 adults 2 boys 8&11? Thanks!!

    Hi Danelle!  Yes, Disney has had some special glasses for watching the Illuminations and fireworks shows but those have generally been used for special groups or events. You can always ask cast members at your resort or the parks to see if they have any available but I believe they are guarded fairly carefully.

    Five days seems like a lot but once you are there you will find that you could have easily stayed double and done ten days at Disney!  I would certainly suggest you spend one full day at the Magic Kingdom...this park is what Disney is all about and the magic is everywhere.  I have found that you can see and experience the Animal Kingdom park with good planning in about 2/3 of a day and that would give you time to see another park for the remainder of the day and evening. Or you can visit Hollywood Studios and Epcot in the same day as they are connected by a convenient water taxi. Head to the park that will close the earliest on that day and end up staying late at the other. Basically in three days you can see and do all four parks in some capacity even if you aren't doing it all. I think it is great to at least get a taste and know what it is all about versus just ignoring it and going home without the experience.  For water parks I suggest you hit one and my choice for your boys would be Blizzard Beach. I think you all would have a great day there with all the slides and lazy rivers and wave pools offered for all abilities.
