    First time to MK on 5/27.We are off site so no magic hours.Is it better to book FP later in the day since park will be more crowded? Have a 2 (boy) & 5(girl) yr old so going early then will go nap midday & return. I booked 2 FP in am and 1 in pm.

    Welcome back, Alison!

    I am so glad we are able to help you with another great planning question.  I often choose the same schedule when visiting with my little ones, so I can relate.  Mid-afternoon nap breaks can sometimes be vital to everyone's happiness!

    It is hard to predict the park's crowd level, so I think you have chosen wisely by breaking up your day and scheduling morning and afternoon choices.  Should the morning wait times not require your FastPass+, you will be able to see what times are available later in the day and reschedule accordingly. (Subject to availability.)  If you do use your two morning FastPass+ reservations, you will still have your afternoon selection offering extra excitement upon your return.  

    While at the Magic Kingdom, make sure you visit one of our family's favorite attractions: Dumbo the Flying Elephant.  My kids love to soar in this fun ride, but they really love waiting in line.  The indoor, circus-themed play area allows them to run and play while you watch nearby, all while "virtually" holding your place in line.  Did I mention there is plenty of sitting room and air-conditioning? It is heaven and sometimes I can hardly pull them away from playing when it is our time to ride.  

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you plan for your little prince and princess. Have a wonderful first visit and a fantastic vacation.

    Magical Wishes,
