    Got all the ADRs we wanted this morning! Success is due to daily visits to the panel! Thx!! What parks do we visit? Use EMH? Can add hopper. 10/12 CM's 9:30a,10/13 Mama's 5:25p,10/14 TH 9:15a,10/16 1900 6:05p. 10/11 is MK day for DD's 6th bd,10/15 MNSSHP


    Assuming you are the same Shelly from MI that I have had some questions from, here is my revised recommendations, largely based on your meal reservations. I would try to use as many Extra Magic Hours as you can, but I would say that adding the park hopper is a judgement call for you. I can get by without it, and with a 6 year old I would say you are like me. You probably are not going want to switch parks a lot, as that can take a toll on a kid, and make them feel like all their time is spent in transit, not in a park. Here are the days;

    • October 10 - Arrival Day. Relax, get to know your resort, enjoy some pool time, and have a nice dinner.
    • October 11 - Magic Kingdom
    • October 12 - Epcot
    • October 13 - Hollywood Studios
    • October 14 - Animal Kingdom
    • October 15 - Magic Kingdom
    • October 16 - Park of choice
    • October 17 - Magic Kingdom

    So you can take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours on the 11th (Magic Kingdom, evening), and 15th (Magic Kingdom, morning), and I recommend you try to use them.

    Have a magical vacation!
