    Taking 4&7 yrold kids in Oct, staying at POP 5 night/4 touring days, no park hop. Will 1 full day and MNSSHP be enough at MK or should we do 2 full days plus MNSSHP? Going to AK & HS as well. Not sure about going to Epcot. Don't have to "do it

    Hi Becky!

    My recommendation would be to spend one full day in the Magic Kingdom plus Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, but do the party on a different day.  I recommend doing Animal Kingdom on one day and then going to the Halloween Party that night.  I say that, because many guests consider Disney's Animal Kingdom to be a half day park.

    However, I do recommend visiting Epcot.  Epcot doesn't have the best reputation with regards to very young guests.  However, Epcot is in many ways two parks in one:  Future World and World Showcase.  Both of my children absolutely enjoyed Epcot's Future World when they were young.  Their favorite attractions were The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Soarin'.  Once my children turned six, they loved Test Track, but my youngest was scared the first time we put him on it at age 5.  In fact, when my youngest was 5, him and I were going to spend the entire day together in the Magic Kingdom while my wife and oldest son when to Blizzard Beach.  However, after about two hours in to our visit to the Magic Kingdom, he insisted that we head over to Epcot to visit Nemo and Turtle Talk with Crush.  We spent most of our "Magic Kingdom Day" in Epcot instead!

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
