    Staying 5 nights and purchased 5-day base tickets (first time at WDW with kids). I have one park hopper ticket and don't know which parks I should visit with the ticket. Which two parks can be done in one day? Any recs? Thanks for your suggestions!

    Hi Jeannie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for you; visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your children for the first time is such a special experience! Be sure to get "First Visit" Celebration Recognition Buttons when you check-in at your Resort Hotel or you can get them at Guest Services ant any of the Them Parks and Disney Springs. It's so much fun to let Cast Members and Guests share in your first visit celebration. You're going to make some unforgettable magical memories! 

    My suggestion for your Park Hopper day would be to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios. I recommend arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park as soon as the Park opens in the morning and then enjoying the Attractions and Entertainment before the Park gets busy. I also recommend making FastPass+ Reservations for Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King, and depending on the ages of your children, either TriceraTop Spin or Expedition Everest: Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. Once you have used your FastPass+ Reservations, you can then go to the My Disney Experience app and make a FastPass+ Reservation for an Attraction in Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    You can then take a break for a nap or some pool time back at your Resort Hotel if you wish and then head to Disney's Hollywood Studios in the afternoon/evening. You can end your day enjoying Symphony in the Stars: Galactic Spectacular fireworks show. 

    I hope my suggestions help in planning your visit. Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
