    Greetings Jessica,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you will be visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" during the merriest time of the yEAR!

    It looks like you are off to a great start with your vacation planning. I always schedule my park days in advance as well, so that I know where to book my family's dining reservations and FastPass+ selections.

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is such a fun way to experience Magic Kingdom Park when it's beautifully decorated for the holiday season. There's just something so magical about enjoying holiday treats and seasonal beverages while watching Once Upon a Christmastime Parade on Main Street, U.S.A. That being said, I would recommend that you split up your days spent at the iconic park. 

    I've always found Magic Kingdom Park to have the most attractions geared for younger Guests. When visiting Magic Kingdom Park, I prefer to arrive before park opening in order to experience as many attractions as possible when the park is often the least crowded. Since Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party lasts until midnight, I would suggest that you move Disney's Hollywood Studios to the day following the party and schedule your main day at Magic Kingdom Park for the end of your trip. Although I don't think you can go wrong with either itinerary,  I do believe you will enjoy splitting up your days spent at Magic Kingdom Park. My family loves being able to experience Happily Ever After on the last night of our vacation. It's always the perfect ending to a magical vacation!

    I hope this information has been helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please stop by again with any new questions as you continue to plan a magical and merry trip!
