    Hi there! We have scheduled 3 days in MK, 1 in Epcot, and 1 in HS. We agreed to skip AK. But I'm worried 3 days in MK might be overkill. Is 3 days in MK too much? We have 3 girls under 8 and its the 1st trip for them and my husband as well.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Courtney! Thank you for directing your question my way.

    Magic Kingdom is my favorite park, so I don’t think there is such a thing as overkill on multiple visits during your magical vacation! That being said, I would encourage you to enjoy all 4 parks during your stay. There is so much magic to explore, and they are each unique and magical in their own way!

    Here are some things to consider when planning your theme park touring days. Are there any special events happening on the days you are visiting? Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off November 8th this year. That means the park will close early for guests not attending the party that evening. Note those schedules, so you can plan accordingly.

    I would also encourage you to browse all the attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom before you make your final choice to bypass this park. I skipped this park too many visits. When I finally gave it a chance, I instantly fell in love! And now, with Pandora- The World of Avatar, it’s a must-do for my crew!

    At the end of the day, if you choose to spend three magical days at Magic Kingdom, you won’t regret it! This park has so much to enjoy! Take your time. Make special dining reservations during each day. Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella’s Royal Table are amazing! But don’t disregard the less popular table service options, like one of my favorites, Liberty Tree Tavern, where you can enjoy a delicious thanksgiving-type meal, served family style. Just be sure to wear your stretchy pants that day. You can thank me later!

    I hope these tips are helpful as you continue to dream up and plan your visit to the most magical place on earth! If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to stop by.
