    We're leaving in 5 days for our first family trip to WDW! We are celebrating our daughter's 4th birthday while there and have tickets for 4 days. We were considering first day MK, 2nd Hollywood Studios, 3rd AK,then back to MK on her actual bday, thoughts?

    Hello, Jason,

    I think it looks like you have a great plan for your trip that is nearly here!  If it helps with your planning, you may also want to take a peek at the Magical Beginnings Guide that highlights toddler-friendly attractions (FYI, Toontown at the Magic Kingdom is not available anymore). Another thing to keep in mind is the scheduling of Extra Magic Hours for Disney resort guests.  Parks that offer extended hours are often quite crowded, so that may affect your plans.  You can view Park Hours and see when the Extra Magic Hours are scheduled over the next 10 days.  

    Just another idea if you'd like to pursue it, but www.touringplans.com is a website that not only offers itineraries, but it recommends which parks to visit and to avoid on specific dates.  It does have a small cost, but one that may be a worthwhile investment for you to make the most of your days at the parks.   

    By the way, did you know you can order a birthday cake for your daughter's special day?  A generic cake can be ordered without notice at any table service restaurant by just letting your server know or a specialized cake can be ordered 48 hours in advance by calling (407) 827-2253. Make sure to get your daughter her complimentary Happy Birthday button at Guest Relations at any of the parks, too!

    Wishing your a wonderful trip and magical birthday celebration!
