    We are arriving at WL on Dec1 for 10 nights. Could you recommend me a sequence of parks considering that on Dec3 we have bought the Mickey's Christmas and we want to avoid the parks on the arrival date? Our boys are 11 and 8 yo.

    Hi Nelson Eduardo!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World, with 10 days whole to days to spend in the middle of all the magic you can almost see just about everything.....well almost.  You mentioned that you would be attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which is an incredible event and a great way to get you into the holiday spirit.  Also, make sure to check out Disney's other Deluxe Resorts which have fantastic gingerbread creations on display this time of year.

    I will be glad to help you with planning which parks to visit on what day, you didn't mention if you would be visiting any water parks so I did not include them.  Please let me know if you want me to add them into your itinerary as I would be happy to! Also please note that Typhoon Lagoon is typically closed this time of year, but Blizzard Beach will be ready for a day for fun in the sun.

    December 2 Epcot 9am-9:30pm
    December 3 Magic Kingdom 9am-7pm Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 7pm-12am
    December 4 Hollywood Studios 9am-8pm
    December 5 Animal Kingdom 9am-5pm
    December 6 use this as a rest and relax day
    December 7 Epcot 9am-9pm
    December 8 Hollywood Studios 9am-8pm Extra Magic Hours 8pm-10pm
    December 9 Magic Kingdom 9am-9pm Extra Magic Hours 9pm-11pm
    December 10 use this day to visit your favorite park or for shopping for any last minute souvenirs.

    I hope this helps with your planning and please let me if need any more advice or have any questions.

    Have a magical vacation!
