    Trip to Disney 12/24-29 (leaving on 30th). Want to do 2 days at Magic Kingdom & 1 day at Animal Kingdom. Suggestions for itinerary/which one to visit on which days (I hear that time of year is very busy)? Will we be able to cover Magic Kingdom in 2 day

    Hello Jyoti,

    Yes, you will be visiting when Walt Disney World is crowded, if not the most crowded time all year.  However, there are ways to work around the crowds.  First and foremost, arrive at the parks early and utilize fast passes as often as you can.  As for the specifics on an itinerary, I really think is so helpful with knowing what order to visit attractions and on which days to visit parks to help you make the most of your trips.  The website is from the folks behind the book The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, and the itineraries are based on detailed research.  In fact, you'll find over 100 touring plans to find that one that best suits your family.  It does have a small fee, but one that I think is worthwhile  - especially since you know you'll be visiting when the parks are busy.  After taking a look at it and you'd prefer to go a different direction with your planning, please let us know. 

    Enjoy the parks and resorts during this time; WDW is absolutely amazing over the holidays.

    Thank you for your questions, and please let us know if you have any more.
