    We are visiting Disney in March. I have tickets for 5 days in the parks. I am unsure about which park we should visit twice since we have to make reservations. Any advice for which park only needs 1 day? Which park definitely needs two days?

    Hello, Jessica! 

    Thanks for bringing your great question to planDisney! 

    I already love that you're planning so carefully to make the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort. It's a personal choice, of course, but I'll share my thoughts to help you decide. 

    Even though Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is the largest in extension (due to the fantastic Kilimanjaro Safaris), Magic Kingdom Park is the one where I always spend more time. 

    Magic Kingdom Park has a larger number of attractions and many shops where you'll want to discover little trinkets and treasures. It's also the home of Cinderella Castle and many iconic attractions like the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Peter Pan's Flight, and Pirates of the Caribbean.  

    I'd also suggest spacing out your days at this Theme Park. I'd start your trip with Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, followed by your first visit to Magic Kingdom Park. Then I'd move on to EPCOT, visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, and then go back to Magic Kingdom Park to kiss it goodbye. How does that sound? 

    After deciding on your itinerary, I suggest making your Theme Park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system. After that, it will be time to research the restaurants you want to enjoy and the little snacks you'd like to try. This foodie investigation is one of the best parts of planning each trip! 

    Then, you'll be able to make dining reservations 60 days before your arrival. If you need any advice as you research these possibilities, please let us know. Our planDisney crew will be here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
