- Hi Anrae!
No worries! 3 days at Walt Disney World is WAY better than no days at all!
The very first thing to do is to take a look at some WDW maps. The area covered is huge, so you'll want to make sure you have a game plan. If you love the more adventurous rides like roller coasters, you will want to be sure to include those. If shows are more your idea of fun, then note those and make a plan to include them. Either way, pick your "must-do's" and tackle those first thing in the morning - be there at park opening if possible. Lines will be the shortest then AND you'll make sure that your day starts off great!
No visit to Walt Disney World is complete without a trip to Magic Kingdom. The original park in Florida, it can't be skipped! Be sure to plan a bit of time here or even a full day. It really is that great!
Next up, plan a dinner in World Showcase at Epcot. Since your trip is short, I really only recommend one sit-down meal (maybe a late lunch) for your trip. Spend some time wandering through the countries of the World and pick a restaurant to try - you really can't go wrong with any of them! Oh, and don't forget to stop into Karamel Kuche in Germany. This caramel shop is more than excellent!
Last, but not least, spend some time at either Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom (or both if you have the Park Hopper option on your ticket. Personally, I LOVE Animal Kingdom, it is like experiencing a bit of Africa without leaving the United States!
Oh! And don't stress - there is no way to "do it all" in one trip regardless of how many days you stay. Pick what appeals to you, don't rush, and soak up the atmosphere. That's the best way to enjoy Disney World!
Hope this helps and please let the Moms Panel know if we can help with any other trip planning details!
