    Thanks Doug! Wondering if planning 3 days at MK is too much? I have 4 kids (4-9) and we typically spend 2 days at MK but we haven't seen the new Fantasyland. Also, one of those days we have BBB, PL & ADR at CRT. We do plan on visiting each park & D


    Typically when I come with my girls we find that we are wanting more time in the Magic Kingdom than we plan. And I typically run by the rule that you spend 2 days in the Magic Kingdom for every 1 day each in the other three parks. But still we end up wanting more Magic Kingdom!

    So no, I would not consider 3 days too much. Remember that the Magic Kingdom has more attractions, more entertainment, and generally more to see and do than any other park. Also, with kids in your age ranges, the park is without question most suited to their interests. And even though you have been here before, the new section of Fantasyland is at least a half day, if not more, of fun. Though it may not have added dozens of new attractions, there are not only a few solid, popular new attractions, but also a lot of grounds to explore and new dining to try out!

    I saw your question earlier about arrival times for the rope drop show. But if you write me back with specific arrival dates and times, I can recommend what parks to do on what days. That might help me know if you would best using that third day elsewhere, or at the Magic Kingdom.

    Have a magical vacation!
