    I have a 3 yr old and a 6 yr old - and this is our first trip to DW. We have tickets for MK(2 days), AK (1 day) and US (1 day). How should we space these out? Day 1 MK, Day 2 AK, Day 3 MK, and then end with US on day 4? any advice?

    Hi Cynthia!

    My kids are similar in age to yours--and I think Magic Kingdom and Animal Kindgdom are the perfect parks for them! Those are definitely my 2 favorites for kids that age. (OK, kids any age!)

    As far as which day to go, I'd check out the calendar to each park (just click PARKS above, then either MAGIC KINGDOM or ANIMAL KINGDOM then CALENDAR) to see the exact day you're going to be there. Based on the day, the opening/closing of the park, fireworks, extra magic hours, special events, etc, you can decide which one you'd like to go to on which day.

    There are also websites (like that give suggestions for crowd levels at each park on a specific day. You could check that out and use it as a guide.

    I don't have a lot of suggestions for Universal, tho'. It's been years since I've been! Enjoy your trip!
