    Hi! We are visiting Disney World February 28th - March 7th with our 2 and 5 years old girls. What would be the best day of the week to go to the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Jennifer! There are two ways to look at visiting the parks while at Walt Disney World. If you do not have a park hopper option with your tickets then choosing the day with the Extra Magic Hours is often the best way to have the most time to experience a park. It will give you an extra hour in the morning or several hours after normal closing time and this is open for all Disney resort guests. You will be required to show your resort key card to enter early or stay late.

    Figuring out which day will be the least crowded in a park is almost impossible. Most of those that try use past numbers from the last few years to get an idea but honestly every year is different. Spring breaks change and thus family vacations change. If your kids are excited most about that park then don't wait.....head there early in your trip. Plan for two days in case you can't do it all in one and it is the most visited park on property. Make a plan that works best for your family and then get the dining and plan the week. It will all be magical!
