Hey everyone, trying to get a little input from those more experienced on how much time we should want to spend at each park.
We’re going for the full week around Halloween, crowds seem to be pretty small as of now
Day 1 - Arrive late, check into hotel, play in the pool and then sleep.
Day 2 - Magic Kingdom, Cinderella’s Lunch - Mickey Halloween
Day 3 - Bon Voyage Breakfast - No real park plans yet, but planning Magic Kingdom at least half day
Day 4 - Animal Kingdom - Tusker Hous Lunch - O’Hana dinner hopefully to watch fireworks.
Day 5 - Epcot - Akershus breakfast at 930, world showcase opens at 11, hopefully we’ll be lined up ready to go on Frozen.
Day 6 - Hollywood - Hollywood & Vine Lunch (Minnie Seasonal)
Day 7 - Open in the AM, Be Our Guest Dinner
Day 8 - Chef Mickey’s Breakfast, no park plans need to leave by 2-3 to get to airport.
The trip is mainly for our daughter who will be 3.5 at the time, we went right after she turned 2 and she absolutely loved it. Last time we didn’t have a good plan, but it was much harder with a group of 8 people. I felt like we wasted a lot of time walking back and forth in the parks, and going back to the hotel midday for attempted naps.
What I need help with is how much time would you need for a toddler to take in all of Magic Kingdom - should we plan on our first 2 full days being there. Then go to each of the other parks for the next 3 days, then finish out park hopping some. If we do the entire first day at Magic Kingdom, and then half the next day should that give us enough time to get everything then park hop somewhere else and come back to Magic Kingdom later in the week? Her favorite thing is meeting the characters, followed by the kid rides (hopefully she grows a couple more inches so we can do 7 Dwarfs- or will they let you tippy toe it?)
Should I plan for needing more than 1 full day at Epcot, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios? We will of course have the time to spend more, but I want to make sure we hit everything at least once then use the extra time to go back and do the stuff she loves some more.
Worth adding, it will be food and wine fest - my mother is coming in a few days and will be babysitting for a couple hours at night while the wife and I go enjoy food and wine fest.
Also, if it is Minnie’s seasonal meal at Hollywood & Vine will there be anywhere to see Jake, and Doc McStuffins?
