    I am visiting Disney for the 1st time, Oct 2016. Should I spend 1 day at Hollywood & 1 at Magic Kingdom or spend 2 days at MK & skip HS? HS seems limited for young kids. My girls are 6 & 4, we are not doing park hopper or Mickey party.

    Hey, Heather -

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited you are bringing your princess to "the Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time! I have been taking my princes to Walt Disney World Theme Parks since they were 3 and 7.

    I would spend two days at Magic Kingdom Park. Plan on meeting all their favorite characters. Mickey loves welcoming new Guests.

    Fantasyland’s Enchanted Forest and Storybook Circus areas are magnificent. In the Enchanted Forest, they will enjoy The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Enchanted Tales with Belle and Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid attractions. You can dine with the Beast at the Be Our Guest Restaurant and enjoy the delicious Lefou’s Brew at Gaston's Tavern. You know, he uses antlers in all his decorating. In Storybook Circus, fly high with the Great Goofini on the Barnstormer and Dumbo The Flying Elephant has a fantastic big-top interactive play area. Casey Jr. Splash ’N’ Soak Station is a great place your kids can cool off, so bring a swimsuit.

    These are the attractions that are best for your daughters based on age. Please check the height requirement for each attraction.

    Disney Dad Tip: Along with many exciting attractions are the Festival of Fantasy Parade, Wishes nighttime spectacular fireworks showcase and the Main Street Electrical Parade. There is so much to do over two days so pace yourselves. Take it slow and easy. Here is a tip for planning the day.

    Heather, enjoy making many unforgettable Magical Memories!
