Leaving for Orlando in 35 days and this will be our first time in Florida. I was hoping that I might ask a few questions. I bought 10 day passes and was wondering how the experienced Disney folks on Mousewait would use these days. I've heard how big Disneyworld is but don't really know how many days we should be spending at each park. The other question is, I've notice the two week forecast shows   More...

We have gone for 2 weeks the past 2 years and love being able to stay for so long.  Here's my suggestion for 10 days:  Animal Kingdom - 2 days (many will say it's a 1/2 day park, but there is so much to do here if you just take your time, especially with those 2 little cuties of yours!)  There are adventures you can do and earn badges, there's a great dig site to visit and several good shows, don't miss Festival of The Lion King!  Hollywood Studios - if you are going during a non busy time, in my opinion, 1 day is plenty, especially if you go from open til close, but you could take it at a slower pace and spend 2 days here.  EPCOT - is definitely a 2 day park, in fact, if you have 3 days,  I'd do that.  Epcot is like 2 parks in one, Future World and The World Showcase; I LOVE The World Showcase, it represents countries from around the world and each country has so much to offer, so don't rush through.  Buy the kiddos passports before entering The World Showcase and have each kidcot area stamp  and sign their passports, that makes it more fun for them, they can be purchased at most gift shops and are about $7 or $8 each.  EPCOT also has so many dining options, you need to eat a lot here!  Magic Kingdom is easily a 2 day park, IF you are going during a busy time, 3 days would be perfect.  Make sure to set up your FP+ for MK rides and HS rides.  If you have any specific questions, ask away.  Oh, and hit a water park, they are worth it, I think Typhoon Lagoon is the better water park.  You should also look into a special event, I'd recommend The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage (look it up on Disney's website or allears.net)  You won't regret doing it!! Don't worry about the rain too much, go to the Dollar Store and buy ponchos (they are pricey in the parks) and be prepared for short showers (they don't last long and most likely won't happen every day), rain can clear out the parks some, but the true Disney warriors wear ponchos and carry on :). - DizneyGirl  602.2 #8 7:00AM
It looks like you'll be there during EPCOT's Food and Wine Festival, I haven't had the opportunity to attend this, but I highly recommend it from what I've read and other MWers that have been can tell you more! - DizneyGirl  602.2 #8 7:04AM
Great photo and welcome! You are going to love DW and you definitely have enough days! I would do 2 ak, 2studios, 3mk and 3 Epcot. How long will you be there? Any down days? Any dinning ressies? Are you only doing the parks or venturing off to water parks or Disney quest? There is so much great Dinning in the parks and at the hotels surrounding the parks. Bring ponchos, sunscreen and be prepared for it to still be warm during the day. Have a great time✨ - mmddgp  413.9 #16 7:40AM
1. Comfortable walking shoes. 2. Extra socks 3. Make dining reservations for any sit down meals that you may want. 4. Plan a little mid-trip down time to just relax. 5. Pace yourself. Don't try to do everything in 10 days, it can't be done. 6. If you have the park hopper, we like to split our days up and go to different parks. 7. With little ones I suggest mornings at Epcot, it gets a little crowded in the evenings during the Food & Wine festivals. 8. SunScreen and stay hydrated. 9. Planning is important, but don't over plan. Take it slow and enjoy every moment. 10. Have fun. - TheDad  65.2 #80 7:53AM
Very light crowds in the rain at WDW. My personal preference for park touring is MK on the first and last day, at least 2 days at EPCOT and a day for each at AK, HS and DTD. If we have more time than that, we usually divvy it up between MK, EPCOT or do something non-park related like resort touring (one of my fav things to do!), swimming, bowling, boating, biking, hiking, movies, mini-golf, etc. We hardly ever have more than 8 days so the latter stuff I just mentioned is still on our list of things to try at some point! - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 7:56AM

Ugh! Mine was a nightmare! I was finally able to use it yesterday afternoon but it was still downloading from iTunes from 4:30am Saturday morning to 12:30am last night! It wasn't a good experience for me :( and I lost my movie (which is fine but we lost Itunes on our computer) again, it was a huge nightmare for my phone :( finally working now! Just need to figure out how I can get my movies back on for my kids. Glad yours is working great!! - brodysmommy  334.8 #627 7:21AM
Mr I had a tough time, too! We called them and were able to transfer all my Disney videos that I wanted to keep on my phone, and all my contacts, apps, etc. My hubs wasn't as fortunate... for some reason his number transferred correctly but service didn't, so he was without his new phone or his old phone for the night and next morning until we could get to our local carrier store. Then he had to stand in line for over an hour and a half before seeing an agent. But, they finally got it working! - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 7:45AM
Yup sounds like us. My husband did his phone in like an hour. He lost his pics so he re did it yesterday and got them all back. But mine, ugh! Our computer wasn't working right either , to start it off. We tried to download the newest iTunes and it said it did but then wouldn't work. So he deleted it and now it won't reinstall on our computer. So he changed to a lap top, that took forever to download, then headed to my parents to try their computer (by then had been 7 hours), tried for 2 hours but was trying to make sure we wouldn't lose anything so then gave up and came home and started the iCloud process at 9pm. His backed up in less than an hour and mine until 4;30am! So he was up all night checking it :( plus Brody woke up 3 times friday night too so we got no sleep :( makes me not want to buy a new phone ever again - brodysmommy  334.8 #627 7:56AM
Oh gosh, what a mess! Glad you finally got it to work! Hope you can get the movies back for the kids. I'm really loving Disney Movies Anywhere! I have collected so many in the last few months and didn't have to worry about losing them with the update! I wish they had an app like that for non-Disney movies, too! - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 8:01AM

More MNSSHP...a few tips...get there early (they let you in at 4), eat before you come (we didn't and wished we had-most restaurants closed around 8 and we felt like it wasted some time), have a plan! It's hard to take it all in and see all of the characters, parade, fireworks, ride rides (w VERY short lines) trick or treat, dance parties, vilians show etc (we didn't get to everything!) It was a G  More...

Great advice!! It's almost impossible to do everything in one night. You definitely have to prioritize and pick and choose your must-sees. - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 5:57PM
I was surprised at how much there was to do!!! I knew what all was going to be available and just pictured us doing it all! My little one was WAY in to the trick or treating (I would've chosen the characters) and dinner took up some precious time lol It was awesome and so worth the money!!! - brittandkell  372.6 #525 6:24PM
I know!!  We have done it twice now, once in 2011 and once last year.  The first year we saw characters, the parade and fireworks, and last year we trick-or-treated, watched the parade and fireworks.  There is STILL stuff we haven't seen. Same with the Christmas party. - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 6:36PM
Love the advice!! - DizneyGirl  602.2 #8 5:58PM
All the times we did mnsshp we did MK earlier in the day. We took our costumes with us and put them in the locker until I was time to change. The parks didn't feel so busy during the day so we were able to do almost all the rides. We would stop for dinner @ 4-430. Then it was time to get on costumes. We didn't ride much at night except for HM and TM. We did get the map and made sure we did the special things. Stage shows, dance party, parade, fireworks and of course the trick or treating. - mmddgp  413.9 #16 6:53PM
Mr I and I will be doing our tour at MK the morning of a party night (not staying for the party). I really hope it's not busy for us. We are hoping to stay until around 5:00 with low crowds all day! 👊 - mrsincredible  809.0 #5 5:01AM

I thought we would be able to do everything as well, but there was just so much! The lines for the villain characters were pretty long, but we did get to see The Witch because she was standing next to 7DMT wall and I don't think a lot of people noticed her. My kids were really into the trick or treating. While we could have bought just as much candy at home, they had a lot of fun getting to trick or treat at Disney World. What's better than that? The parade was amazing, we saw the first parade and were able to find a spot. We watched the Villians stage show twice, because we liked it so much! The second show was much better, due to it being dark out by then. Celebrate the Magic was right after that, then Hallowishes! I would definitely encourage anyone to go to MNSSHP if they get the chance.. Totally worth it!! - kayxobelle  200.6 #35 5:59AM
I just had to laugh...mine LOVED trick or treating there! Do you know how much candy we could've bought at Target for the amt our tickets cost lol I just decided it was all about the experience of our family being dressed up and trick or treating at the magic kingdom!! - brittandkell  372.6 #525 7:21AM

It's usually a short rain shower!! - DizneyGirl  602.2 #8 11:24AM

Good evening Melissa! I spent my day at Northwest Trek wild animal park. This morning, I ran an 8k and my friend ran a 5k. Then we took their tram ride and saw tons of animals! We had lunch and then walked some of the trails (that we had run in the morning). We saw black bears and a grizzly before checking in for our zip line adventure course! Neither one of us had ever done a zip line course and it was a ton of fun! Finally, we checked out the big cats before calling it a day. I'm exhausted, but happy! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  867.2 #3 4:17PM
