    Michele Asked

    I have a 5 yr. old & will be in Disney for 4 days, how can i make the most of our short vacation. We are staying at an All Star resort, does this cut travel time? Also, r Hllywd Stds and Epcot age appropriate for my son? What do "magic hours' of

    Unfortunately, Michele, staying at an All-Star resort won't really shorten your travel time to the parks.  That said, even a short trip to Walt Disney World will make for magical memories for your young child.  In your case, I think it's important to prioritize.  Make a list of must-do attractions in each park and shoot to experience those.  Choosing 4-5 is a great start!  Magic Hours will offer you and your child time in the theme parks during which only Disney resort guests are permitted admittance.  We've always found that morning Extra Magic hours offer an excellent opportunity to experience maximum attractions with minimal waits. 

    There are attractions your son will enjoy in both Hollywood Studios and Epcot, though I'd venture to guess that he will probably get the most out of Magic Kingdom.  If I were you, I'd spend some time exploring the attractions at Hollywood Studios as well as the attractions at Epcot.  From there you can judge how best to divide your limited time in the parks!
