    We are taking the 3 night Bahamian Cruise May 30th and we only have 2 days at all 4 parks. We will purchase a 2day park hopper. How do you suggest we split up our 2 days at all 4 parks?

    Welcome aboard, Jodi! 
    You must be getting excited to set sail in just a couple weeks! Our family loves to combine a cruise with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort too, so I know how much fun a "surf and turf" vacation can be!

    It's hard to tell you exactly how to split your time at all four parks in just two days before you set sail, as each of the parks has so much to offer. If this is your first trip to Walt Disney World, I highly suggest spending one entire day at the Magic Kingdom. With so much to do and see there, this park can easily take two or three days, but if you make a list of your "must-do's", you can certainly experience those special attractions in the Magic Kingdom. 

    That leaves you with three other parks and only one more day. Don't miss Animal Kingdom, and the best time to visit there is the morning when the animals tend to be out and more active. Perhaps you could visit that park as soon as it opens and enjoy a character lunch at Tusker House before heading to Hollywood Studios or Epcot. 

    While many families might skip Epcot, not knowing what there is for youngsters there, I find that there are endless hours of fun to be had with young families there, so don't count Epcot out! However, if you have very young children, I'd recommend spending the afternoon at Hollywood Studios where they can meet some of their favorite Disney Junior pals, older kids and adults can enjoy Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, and you can all take a spin on Toy Story Mania! Wrap up the night by enjoying the nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic!

    Don't forget to check out which days the parks offer Extra Magic Hours for resort guests, and take full advantage of those! Have fun planning, Jodi!
