    Have a trip planned for October 29- November 4 at Poly. With parks not fully operational and available to ride everything, would you suggest 4 or 5 park days and what park on what day? Have a 10 & 13 year olds, this is their 2nd time to Disney.THX

    Bright Suns, Dylan!

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting to hear that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    When time is short, I always advocate for more theme park days. With five days, you have time to visit one park twice. Given the ages of your kids, I would suggest that you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios twice, especially since you may not be able to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance on your first day in the park. Be sure to review the virtual queue updates to make sure you are ready to ride!

    My girls are 13-years old and we prefer to visit Magic Kingdom on the first day, Disney's Hollywood Studios on the second, Disney's Animal Kingdom on the third, and EPCOT on the fourth. Magic Kingdom is a first day park because we love walking down Main Street, U.S.A. and seeing Cinderella Castle. In years past, we have visited EPCOT first. Riding Soarin' Around the World also puts us right in the middle of the magic.

    Since you are staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, you will also have access to the Resort Monorail. When we stay at a resort hotel with access to the resort monorail, we typically spend our last day at Magic Kingdom or Epcot so that we can get there quickly and get back to the resort hotel to catch Disney's Magical Express. The last time we stayed at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, we walked over to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. Although temporarily unavailable now, keep an eye out on dining updates to see if it opens in time for your visit. 

    Dylan, also be sure to access the Disney Park Pass system to make your park pass reservations for each day that you have valid theme park admission. Check the park availability calendar to see park availability for the dates of your visit. And, then, get ready for your next Incredible Disney Day.

    May the Force be with you as you plan!

    Good journey,
