    How many attractions is it possible to do in one day @MK? I'm thinking to dedicate 3 days at this park, is it too much? Daughter will be 5 years old and will be traveling from 11/28-12/04. Want to go see all princesses, tinkerbell & Mickey+ 4 character

    Hi there Glorian!  Congratulations on your Walt Disney World vacation! To be perfectly honest, the number of attractions we usually experience in a given day can be determined by many factors including the crowd level that day, whether we choose to enjoy a table-service meal as opposed to just quick-service meals, if we are trying to meet characters, and if we go back to our resort for a midday break. When we have visited during times of the year that are traditionally less crowded, we have experienced approximately twenty attractions on that particular day. We are usually able to experience all of the attractions on our "must do" list. Since you are wanting to visit many of the character greetings during your visit, then I would recommend more than one day at Magic Kingdom Park. In my personal opinion, I feel two days should be ample time to experience all of the attractions and character greetings that you would want to see with a five-year-old.  If you have a third day to spend in a park, I would recommend either Disney's Animal Kingdom Park or Disney's Hollywood Studios. I also wanted to mention that the independent website allears.net features a Historic Attendance Levels Chart which categorizes the week following Thanksgiving through mid-December as "lowest attendance."  When visiting Magic Kingdom Park, I recommend touring the park by "lands."  We always start our day in Fantasyland and then move to Tomorrowland and so on. I find we are able to maximize our time with this park touring strategy. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Glorian!
    Happy Planning,
    Jodie
