    3 wks!So excited! I want to do a loose plan for ea. day.Torn 9/30. Hope you all can give some thoughts/advice. AM at AK (until about 2) Meal at Crystal palace then MNSSHP or AM at Epcot lunch at Biegarden then to MNSSHP. We have 5dPH tkts. Me, DH, DS11.

    Hi Shannon! First of all I love that you make "loose" plans. Guests who try to adhere to something rigid and firm are those that let so much magic pass them by. There are things that happen such as a character meet and greet or a special entertainment show that might catch your eye that you would be remiss to walk by.

    I am not sure if you will have any other time at either of these two parks, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Both are incredible parks that I hate for you to miss. If you are asking which one to choose from it is hard. But I guess I would go with the Animal Kingdom morning.  You can do most of the park if you arrive at opening and leave at 2pm. Some of the can't miss in my eyes are: Expedition Everest, Dinosaur, Safari Ride, Lion King show, It's Tough to be a Bug, and Flights on Wonder. If it is warm and you don't mind getting wet you can include the Rapids ride. I also suggest you have an early lunch (11am) at Flametree Barbecue which is a quick service location. Take your food trays down to the water's edge and enjoy a peaceful lunch experience watching the Expedition Everest in the background. Some of the native birds might join you as well which makes for an interesting time too.

    The earliest you can enter the Magic Kingdom using your Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party ticket is about 4/4:30. In the past years they have let guests in at this time without having to buy a daily park ticket.  You can make dinner reservations at the Crystal Palace or another table service location for about 5/6pm. The party officially begins then at 7pm.

    It would be a full day but certainly filled with fun.  Enjoy!
