Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • First trip with 5yr girl-loves princesses- & 3yr boy-loves Goofy, Donald & dinosaurs-, what are top 5 @ each park & downtown to see/do for each child? What time do the world showcases open @ Epcot? Can you still wake up Tinker Bell @ MK? Thanks

  • Stephanie,

    The World Showcase typically opens at 11 am. But from the Walt Disney World website main page you can check the park hours by highlighting "Parks & Tickets", then selecting "More Park Hours" from the pop up menu. At that new page you can select the date in question and the hours will show up.

    Waking up at Tinker Bell at the Magic Kingdom is no more. Sorry!

    As for the top 5 for your kids, I would start with;

    Magic Kingdom
    it's a small world
    Enchanted Tales with Belle
    Main Street Electrical Parade (or day parade, if the time is too late for them)
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    Dumbo the Flying Elephant

    The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    KidCot Fun Stops
    Agent P's World Showcase Adventure

    Hollywood Studios
    Disney Junior - Live on Stage
    Toy Story Midway Mania
    Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage
    Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    Muppet*Vision 3D

    Animal Kingdom
    Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Festival of the Lion King
    Finding Nemo - The Musical
    TriceraTop Spin
    Flights of Wonder

    I could add more to any of these lists, but for the Magic Kingdom I could add hundreds. Make sure you are spending more time at that park than any other, as it is most ideally suited to a 5 and 3 year old. Plan to go to character meet-and-greets, and also consider where you want to dine, as those are great experiences too. Write me back if you want some first hand advice from my travels with my now 7 and 5 year old girls over the last 3 years.

    Have a magical vacation!
