    How would you split up 6 days in the parks? 2 in MK, 2 in AK, and 1 in HS, with an extra to play by ear is our tenative plan. We were thinkng about excluding Epcot, thinking it is not as kid oriented? (5 and 2 y/o girls). Are we way off base? THANK YOU!!

    Hi Karissa!

    I think you are right on track! Epcot is a fantastic park, but I would say it's not totally geared to the kindergarten/pre-school aged. But bear in mind: Animal Kingdom can be completed in 1 day, provided that you start when the park opens and it's not too over-crowded.

    If you do try Animal Kingdom over 2 visits, you could split it up similar to the following: 

    1 visit to focus on the rides/shows, and the 2nd visit to focus on the animal experiences (Affection Section, Conservation Station, Discovery Island Trails, etc.). 


    1 visit could cover the western part: Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, and Africa. And the 2nd visit could cover the eastern part: Rafiki's Planet Watch, Asia, and Dinoland USA. So there are options.

    Having that extra "free" day is really smart Mom! :-) You can use it to try out Epcot if you desire. Or return to one of your favorite parks and go to those best experiences. Great job!

    May you and family have the "Time of Your Life!"
