The Ideal 5 Day Disney World Itinerary
Day One at Disney World
When possible get there as early as possible, if its an early flight or leaving early in the morning for a drive to Orlando to enjoy a few hours at one of the Disney Water Parks. Get the kids moving after a tough travel day and early to bed for four more days of Disney Park fun.
Day Two at Disney World
Plan on spending the entire day at Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom has expanded and added so many new attractions that it is truly a day and night park now. We found four hours was enough to explore the park during the day, but we had fast passes to skip all the lines.
Coming May 27th the new Pandora, World of Avatar will open. This area is based on the movie and is sure to bring one of a kind experience.
For the late night park goers, you need to experience the Nighttime safari to see the animals during a different light. Stick around for the Rivers of Light show and on your way out of the park, find Tree of Life lit up with a friendly goodbye. These shows are exclusive to Animal Kingdom and worth keeping the kids up late.
Day Three at Disney World
Start your day at Epcot for a wild new ride on Soaring around the world The new movie is filled with sites from around the world. Like the previous movie, you will experience both smells and experiences. Give your taste buds a cultural adventure by eating around the countries
Of course be sure to get your fast pass for the new Frozen ride. We missed it but I was told it was amazing. On your way out go on Test Track, another ride to have your fast pass. Wait around for another spectacular fireworks show.
