We will only have 3 or 4 days.

What parks are a must? How would you plan the days?

Disney Veteran's Day weekend

If you only have 3 or 4 days I would spend them at Magic Kingdom. You can go to the park and then come back to the hotel and then go back to the park. You won't feel rushed to get everything done and will have plenty of time to plan it all out and see what you want.

Maybe Hollywood Studios for the Disney Jr things? DS really liked it there a lot, moreso than Animal Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom is a must do!

I think that Hollywood Studios is great for that age because of all of the Disney Junior stuff they have. They also have a great Pixar parade.

Animal Kingdom is great for kids who love animals but it is a lot of walking, and not a lot of rides for little ones. There are GREAT shows though and even what most would call a petting zoo.

Re: Disney Veteran's Day weekend

With the addition of the attractions in New Fantasyland, there is so much to do at MK. You'd probably want to spend the bulk of your time there. Two days would probably be enough since your kids are so young and you wouldn't be hitting any of the mountains.

For the rest of your days, HS and AK are easily half day parks. The best things to do at HS are the Disney Jr Live on stage and Toy Story Mania. You would need to get there early if you wanted to do TSM since the lines are always long for that ride. Muppets 3D, Voyage of the Little Mermaid and the Beauty and the Beast show are good too.

AK has the safari and exploring trails, Dino land, great shows ( Nemo, Festival of the Lion King and It's Tough to Be a Bug) and the new Wilderness Explorers program.

Don't count out Epcot. There are a ton of characters there. The Nemo ride and Turtle Talk with Crush at the Living Seas is a lot of fun. They also have the Kidcot funspots in World Showcase. Your kids go around to all the different countries and get their Duffy bear stamped. They can also color their bear at each stop.

So, if I had 4 full days. I would do 2 at MK. A morning at HS then a break then hop over to Epcot at night for dinner. AK another morning then take a break and maybe go over to Downtown Disney for some shopping and ice cream.

Hope this helps. Sorry so long. Feel free to ask me any questions.

The parade at Hollywood Studios has been gone since March.

I would say Magic Kingdom is a must. So much for their age group as well as Hollywood Studios! Wishing you lots of Pixie Dust on your upcoming Vacation!

Thank you

What parades are a must see? And are there fireworks at all of them or every night?
