    Vacationing sept 18-23. we would like to spend 5 days at the parks (2 of them being half days w/ arrival and departure). we would like to take a rest day in the middle. could you suggest a good schedule for which parks to visit on the full days? kids 3and1

    Hi Jessica!
    Good idea planning a "rest" day in the middle of your vacation. It will make it MUCH better for everyone. Relaxing by the pool after sleeping in, and then maybe cruising around Downtown Disney without a schedule really does wonders in recharging everyone's batteries.
    My family visits ALWAYS begin and end at Magic Kingdom. And with little ones, you are going to want to spend at least a full and half day here. For your second full day, I would choose Disney's Hollywood Studios, but ot as much for the rides as for the shows. Beauty and the Beast, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and Disney Junior will definitely be fun for your kids. And then for your second half day, I would hit Disney's Animal Kingdom. EPCOT will be a better choice when the kids get a bit older.
    Of course, all of this is subject to change based on the kids, for they may just want to hit Magic Kingdom again and again, or the Studios, or AK. Flexibility will be key, but it sounds like you have already planned for that.
    I wish you all a Magical trip!! :)
