    Hi! We'll be at WDW in Mar with our two daughters, 2.5 and 1.5 yo, for only 2 days. Can you please recommend how to divide our time between the parks? We were going to do 1 day at MK and 1 day at Epcot...My oldest is 38" tall. Thank you!

    Hey Lindsay-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You will enjoy the most magical time with your daughters because Mickey Mouse always has special moments waiting for young princesses. One day at each park is perfect.

    When traveling with little ones setting expectations will give you the best experience at the theme parks because it is no fun for anyone if kids are cranky and tired. Here are some tips.

    •Plan to arrive at each theme park 30 minutes before the published opening time (many call it rope drop), eat lunch around 11:30 a.m. and end the morning segment around 1:30 p.m. Head back to your resort for some pool time or take a nap and then return around 5:00 p.m. for the evening activities.

    •Attractions are based on height. This is a list of attractions for your oldest at Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot followed by these attractions for everyone. At Magic Kingdom Park begin in Fantasyland then to Adventureland. After these you may head anywhere. Epcot is a very large park and I would suggest Future World first then the World Showcase later in the day. This will be easier on everyones legs.

    Disney Dad Tip: Plan your three FastPass+ reservations for attractions you want mid-morning. This way you will have very short lines at park opening and use FastPass+ reservations when it is busier. After you use these you will be able to get more from the FastPass+ Kiosks on a rolling basis.

    Please let me know if I may help you further.

    Lindsay, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
