    I have boys 5,7,10. And two days at the Parks. Was thinking Animal Kingdom and Disney HS for 1/2 days and Magic kingdom a full day. Or what is the best strategy to see the most in our two days???? I am feeling overwhelmed.

    Hi Jessica -

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It can definitely be overwhelming to plan your first trip, but we can help!

    It sounds as though you have a good plan. You can definitely do many things at Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning. To make the most of your two days, I'd recommend arriving when the parks open. It's usually less crowded, and is a good opportunity to experience many of the attractions before the crowds arrive.

    In addition, you should definitely take advantage of the FastPass+ system. Since you can only get FastPasses for one park per day at this time, get them for your second park of the day when you visit two parks. For your Magic Kingdom day, try to make your reservations in the afternoon, when the lines are longer.

    For your first visit, I definitely recommend doing some research in advance to see what attractions are must-dos for your family. That way, you'll have a good plan before you arrive.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
