    Hi! We will be visiting WDW the second week in Feb and will have 3 full days in the parks. We are all 1st timers. Kids ages are 3, 4, 5, & 9. Magic Kingdom is a definite but we are trying to determine how we should divide our time

    Hi Quinessa!

    I know you are absolutely thrilled to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time!  There is so much to see and do that I'm sure this won't be your last visit!  I agree that Magic Kingdom Park is a must-see.  I would highly suggest going there on your first day, just in case you don't have time to do everything you want to do in one day.  You can always go back on one of your other days!  When my husband and I visit, we usually spend our first day in Magic Kingdom Park and spend our last evening watching fireworks there, too!

    My next suggestion would be to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Between all of the animals, thrill rides, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Pandora - The World of Avatar, there is something for everyone.  Since most of the kids are a bit younger, I think the animals will be really fun for them!  Next, I would say to check out Epcot.  Between Frozen Ever After, Journey Into Imagination With Figment, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Living with the Land, there is a lot to offer for the little ones.  Also, walking around all of the countries and exploring the cultures is a great learning experience!  Next on my list would be Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Although some of the rides may be a little more thrilling than the little ones might like, Star Wars fans will have a ball, and you can't miss Toy Story Mania!

    My best suggestion would be to check out the full list of attractions to see which ones will suit your family best, then plan to spend most of your time in those parks.  Also, make sure to take advantage of the Park Hopper Ticket Option, Extra Magic Hours, and FastPass+!  No matter what you choose, you will have a great time!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
