    Hi Anna! 1st ? I sent was titled-1st WDW trip 5/4-5/11.. help w/planning the day: You replied and here is my reply.. Not sure about EMH since it's our 1st, if so, would most likely be in the evenings. We also have water park passes. Please help plan. TY!!!

    Hi, Katina!  Okay, so let's not take extra magic hours into consideration.  Do you have park hopper passes?

    Based on your dining reservation, I would spend 5/5 at EPCOT, since you have reservations at the Coral Reef restaurant.  It's a great first park day, and you can end the evening with Illuminations, or head out early to get an early start the next morning.

    On 5/6, with your Hoop Dee Doo dinner show that night, I'd go early to Animal Kingdom.  You can get a lot done in a day there, and if you go early, you'll be able to wrap up there and go to your show.  You may even have time to hit a water park in between if you get to the park early.

    5/7 is your Chef Mickey night, so I'd probably start the day at the Magic Kingdom.  Your dinner is just a short walk from the gate at the Magic Kingdom, or you can take the monorail right over.  The park is open until 10 that night, so you could even hop back on the monorail and head into the park for Wishes or to take in a last attraction before turning in for the night.

    5/8 you have Akershus, and since you could have done EPCOT already, this is a good day to hit the water parks.  You can head back to the resort to shower and head to EPCOT for dinner and Illuminations.

    On the 9th, I'd do Hollywood Studios, then go to your Cape May dinner.  Then the last day, I'd probably hit another water park, take the day easy and relax in the sun.  You can then go to your Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment before dinner.

    I hope this helps give you a bit of an itinerary to work with!
