    My family ( 13 yr boy & 5 and 7 yr girls) are staying for five days and nights first week of May. We arrive to Art of Animation around 3:00 that first day. What park do you recommend we go that first/shortened day? Epcot or HS or MK?

    Hello, Melinda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  WOO HOO!  Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner!  Your family is going to have an UNFORGETTABLE time!

    If your family would like to visit a Disney Theme Park on a shortened day, my recommendation would be Disney's Hollywood Studios.  There have been a few closures to some attractions because of the very exciting Star Wars and Disney/Pixar Toy Story expansions that will be happening in the near future.  Because of this, there are less attractions and experiences compared to Epcot or Magic Kingdom.  

    Now, to make sure you are able to experience the attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you MUST right now book your Fastpass+ selections through your My Disney Experience account.  If you arrive after 3:00 to the park and don't have Fastpass+  reservations, you will be wasting a lot of time waiting in lines. For a shortened day, do not delay in making your FastPass+ reservations!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
