    My kids will be ages 2 & 6 in Jan, and they’re getting a trip to Disney from Santa. Can we do it in just two days? We only want to do Magic Kingdom & Animal Kingdom. What are your overall suggestions for the trip?

    Hi Nichole!

    I can't think of a better gift to get from Santa than a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!  There are so many pixie-dusted experiences and adventures to be had that I'm sure you will all want to come back again and again!

    That being said, I usually recommend at least one day in each park to make sure you see the highlights, so I think spending one day in Magic Kingdom Park and one day in Disney's Animal Kingdom is a good plan.  If you schedule your days well and take advantage of both FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours, you can experience so much of the magic in just two days!  

    When you begin planning, make sure you check out the full list of attractions in each of the parks.  These lists give you information about attractions like height restrictions, which will help you figure out what your family will want to experience the most!  Once you figure out what your top priorities are for attractions, you can plan your FastPass+ selections and even add in some amazing dining experiences to really fill your days!  Just remember to leave time to soak in all of the magic between your scheduled experiences.  There is so much to see throughout each of the parks, and you'll be amazed that some of your favorite memories will be made at the most unexpected times!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
