    What is your suggestion for tackling Magic Kingdom with a 2 1/2 yr old and a 7 yr old? The oldest can ride everything, but we want them both to do as much as they want. We do have park hoppers so we can utilize other days if we finish at one park early.

    Hi Tami!

    My best advice for touring Magic Kingdom is to take your time.  There is so much to see and do, you don't want to miss any of it by rushing around to make sure you fit everything in.  

    My kids are 3 and 6 and while we can experience most attractions together, there are a few that my youngest cannot go on.  If you can, split up and have one parent take your oldest on attractions your 7 year old wants to go on while the other takes the youngest on something nearby or find an area they can run around in while you wait.

    Take advantage of rider switch.  That way, you can all wait in the queue together and minimize the time you will be split up.  

    Since you have park hoppers, you'll have the safety of returning at another point to do things you didn't get to do the first time or do some things you loved and want to do again.

    Have a magical day!
