    Visiting the MK with our 3 daughters (age 6 & 2-year old twins) on June 17th. We have the evening of the 16th and morning of the 18th unplanned...any suggestions for what we can do to get more out of our stay at WDW? Does MK offer evening ticket pric

    WDW does not offer a sunset pass like other amusements parks. Instead ticket prices are less expensive per day the more days that you purchase.

    If you have a 4 day base ticket and want to add a day, it costs $3.20 more for an adult 5 day ticket. You could then go in to a park on the evening of June 17. The twins would be free and your 6-year old would be $1.07 (prices subject to change).

    Our family will be there that week too. On our first day, we will go to the pool, followed by dinner at Chef Mickey’s. When my son was younger, this really worked well as he was used to the characters before we even set foot in a park.

    Your arrival day can some times be exhausting. It’s fun to tour the resort and relax at the pool. Visit a resort to watch the Electrical Water Pageant (it starts at the Polynesian at 9 p.m.) and Wishes fireworks display. If you head to the Polynesian, your kids can play on the beach. Wishes will begin at 10 p.m. You may want to have dinner at the Polynesian, Grand Floridian or Contemporary. You can then take a monorail ride before settling at the Polynesian beach.

    Visiting a water park on June 18 would be a fun diversion. Are you going in to a park on June 18 or is this your departure day? Mornings are the best time to tour with the least amount of crowds.  

    Visit Downtown Disney. Our son loves the Lego hands-on play area at the Lego Imagination Center. A carousel ride costs $2. There are fun fountains for cooling off so be prepared if you want to let your kids splash around. A miniature train also costs $2 per ride.

    Other activities include:
    Marina boat rentals, bike rentals, carriage rides (Port Orleans Riverside and Fort Wilderness), campfire sing-a-long and movies at Fort Wilderness Lodge, miniature golf courses, walking around the Boardwalk resort and more.

    On our last day, we will not be visiting the parks. Instead I’ve planned time at Downtown Disney, followed by a pool-side rest.

    Hope to see you there!
