    I have a 4 year-old son, and have never been to Disney. I wonder what we should do to "maximize"our trip-would 3 days in a row might be too tiring, and 2 would be better for a little guy? What are must-sees and what is a good schedule?

    Hi Anna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited that you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for you and your little guy! Since this will be the first time both you and your son are meeting Mickey and his friends, I know it's going to be such a magical vacation.

    I have a Mouseketeer around your little guy's age, too! Maximizing your vacation is a great idea; you'll want to experience everything you can without exhausting your little one (or you)! In my opinion, three days in a row wouldn't be too tiring. A schedule that works with my son is to visit one of the four theme parks in the morning, head back to our Walt Disney World Resort hotel in the afternoon for a break in our room (or swim in the pool) and then finish the evening off at a theme park. I recommend choosing the Park Hopper Option when purchasing Theme Park Tickets because it will allow you to visit more than one theme park in one day! You could spend the morning at Magic Kingdom Park and the evening at Epcot.

    Disney FastPass+ Service is another wonderful way to maximize your vacation and experience the must-see attractions! I recommend Pirates of the Caribbean, "it's a small world" and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park! The new Toy Story Land is opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios on June 30th! Visiting Pandora - The World of Avatar in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is definitely a must-see, too!

    Wishing you an amazing vacation,
