    Booked WDW in Feb '15! Kids are 6&3; first trip! We'll get to each park first thing, have lunch, hit the hotel for naps, then revisit same park for PM. Any thoughts on the # rides we can fit in each AM/PM session w/o feeling rushed or frantic? Thanks!

    Hello, Jennifer -- and congratulations on booking your family's first Walt Disney World vacation! There are a number of factors that will determine how many attractions you will be able to fit into your split-day at the theme parks, including crowd levels and attraction popularity, to name a few. While there is currently no (accurate) way to predict how many rides you will be able to experience during your theme park adventure, I am happy to share some tips to help you maximize your time.

    The number one way to save time at Walt Disney World is by making use of the FastPass+ service. I prefer to experience my favorite attractions in the standby line queue during the first and last two hours of the day, and save my FastPass+ selections for late morning or early evening, when crowds are at their peak. It's also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the theme park maps in advance of your visit. You can save a lot of time and energy backtracking through the parks if you have a clear idea of where you are headed. It also helps to have a few must-do attractions in mind before your visit so that you can prioritize where you spend your time throughout the day.

    It sounds like you are already off to a great start with your planning, and your family will really appreciate having a bit of down time at the hotel to recharge for the evening's adventures. If you have any other questions before your trip, please do not hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel, Jennifer. We'd love to hEAR from you!
