    Trip reserved for 4/4-4/10 we plan on AK 1 day MK 2 days which one would you recommend for us to attend 2 days Epcot or HStudios. Kids ages are 5, 11, 13 we don't have hopper pass but would like to get all that we can during our 1st trip. Thank You Panel

    Hi Theresa,

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip, how exciting!

    Personally I would do 1 day at both of the remaining parks rather than 2 days at one of them. As long as you know that you won't be able to see everything and choose the best attractions for your family you will have so much fun. Before you go check out the Disney's Hollywood Studios page and the Epcot page on the Disney website to get a rough idea of which rides would appeal to your family. I have 2 girls aged 10 & 12 and our Epcot favourites are Soarin, Test Track and Mission Space plus we love to walk around the World Showcase and at DHS we love Toy Story Mania, Tower of Terror and the shows.

    To get the most out of your day make sure to arrive at your chosen park as early as possible, before opening is best, and make use of the fast pass system. A great video can be found in our video section HERE explaining how this system works. Also taking a break for a swim or a nap in the middle of the day will make it much easier to stay up late and watch the fantastic fireworks shows on offer. Another way to avoid the crowds is to visit a park that is NOT having extra magic hours. You can find the park opening times on the main site.

    Have a great trip,
