Instead of Magic Kingdom a few times, why not do the Islands of Adventure/Universal Studios the same day since they are right next to each other at city walk?

Also I encourage you to eat at Giordanos Pizza or Uno's Pizza while you are there.

Sounds good to me

Looks like you've thought things like rest days through. You don't have epcot at all. There are some nice rides there for your daughters age like turtle talk with crush. But it's probably the least essential for that age.

It sounds good to me and Epcot is included on the first day Vigiequeen. I would recommend that you take a buggy with you if you hadn't already thought about this. Your daughter is still young enough to need a rest and it will help with carrying juices etc too.

Hi, jordansbull, I bought the ultimate Disney and Legoland tickets so universal not included. I did not want to do Universal as I find it for older children I think my daughter is too young, did not look into adventure of Island so will check it up thank you for your post

Hi Boiler bunny, yeah I was not sure if two full days in row will be too much, hard to judge when I do not how how tiring it will be!! So I think if we will be really tired then we can always swap it round, the think with water park is that I can't really plan it as we are going in February and I don't think the weather will be good enough for water park? Also I read somewhere that one of the disney water parks will be closed for refurbishment so need to plan once we are there and see

Thank you for your post

Hi vigiequeen , as already someone mentioned I have Epcot on day 2, also thinking I may drop the Walmart shopping ( as i wanted buy waters, snacks, etc.) but may buy something at I-drive if any reasonable shop there?and do Epcot most of the day as I have a few things I'd like to see there and think half day would not be enough?

Thank you for your post

Hi fifer77mum, thank you, I must say it's really difficult to plan holidays like that I did not have an idea how overwhelming the information about the parks are!!! I will be taking a buggy definitely as my daughter is very lazy!!! I need to get her used to to walk as we can't go anywhere without pram as I end up to carry her:-(

Thank you for your post
