    Hi panel! We are traveling with three kids (7,5,3) and only have 2 days in the park. Do you think one day at MK and one day at Hollywood Studios or two days at MK would be better. Staying at Contemporary and need to nap each day!Thanks.

    Hi! I understand the need for the naps midday since I have little ones, and staying at the contemporary makes it easy to leave and return once again to Magic Kingdom. You don't mention if you're a first time visitor or not, so I'll try to include my thoughts for both scenarios. If it is your first time visiting, you may find that you love Magic Kingdom so much that you'll want to devote time to enjoying everything it has to offer, and that two days are better spent there rather than dividing two days between two parks. We spent two days at Magic Kingdom each time we brought a child of ours to Magic Kingdom for their first visit. This allows you to go at the pace necessary for your family. The second day you will already be more familiar and will be able to see/do the things you missed the first day. However, if your family has already visited Magic Kingdom, then make a plan on what you'll want to experience for each half of the day (allotting time for the nap) at the parks and try to group them in proximity, and keep in mind any attraction you'll want to make wise use of your fast passes for. You'll find that some attractions have a different "feel" to them in the day as opposed to nights (think Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at MK and Tower of Terror at HS), so work what you would like to experience into your plans. Remember to enjoy yourselves most of all, and have a magical vacation!
