    Hi, We are going with our 2 and 5 year old to WDW for the first time late November. We're staying at the Polynesian and visiting MK 2 days. I'd like advice on how to see the other 3 parks in our remaining 2 days. Are there 2 that we can do in 1/2 a day?

    Hi there Analise.

    Your first trip to Walt Disney World? How exciting!
    Given that your little ones are quite young, planning for several days at the nearby Magic Kingdom is a great idea. Enjoying the other 3 parks in just 2 days is actually quite easily done, especially since you'll likely be bypassing the 'thrills' in favour of the many, family attractions.

    Plan to spend 2/3 of a day at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Head there early in the day in order to enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris in the morning with the whole family. Your little ones will enjoy DinoLand U.S.A. as well as the wonderful stage shows and walking trails around this beautiful park. Be sure to pick up a Daily Times Guide on your way into the park to check the scheduled show times for the day. After the fun, afternoon parade, consider heading back to your Polynesian Resort for some enjoyable pool time.

    Splitting a day between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot works quite well. These two theme parks are connected by water way and the lovely Friendships which transport you back and forth via Epcot's International Gateway entry/exit point. I'd recommend that you take the bus to visit Hollywood Studios first, heading straight to Toy Story Midway Mania! upon arrival. Other attractions your little ones are sure to enjoy include Disney Junior - Live on Stage!, Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, Voyage of The Little Mermaid and the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure. 

    Then, head out the gates to the boat dock and over to Epcot. After entering the park, take a left towards Future World and be sure to visit The Seas with Nemo & Friends. After exploring Epcot, simply hop on the monorail at the park's main gate (near Spaceship Earth) to head back to your Polynesian Resort. You can walk from the Transportation & Ticket Center or transfer to a Resort Monorail there.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Analise!
