    On August 16th, we're thinking about doing a four-park hop for my sisters Sweet Sixteen. Must dos include Pirate Makeover, Tuskers, Illuminations, Character Palooza, Teppen Edo, and possibly breakfast at CRT. What iterniary would you suggest?

    Hi Mariah!

    Wow! That's an ambitious - but tremendously FUN sounding plan for the day of your Sister's Sweet Sixteen! How exciting! Four parks in a day will be a whirlwind of fun! If I were to attempt to accomplish all that you've outlined here, here's how I would do so:

    Make an EARLY breakfast reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table and start your day at Magic Kingdom. Immediately following breakfast, head to your Pirate Makeover appointment at the Pirates League.
    An 8:00am breakfast and perhaps 9:30am Pirates League appointment should work to start your day.

    Following your morning of fun at Magic Kingdom, hop on the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center and board a bus over to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Head straight to lunch with Donald Duck and friends at Tusker House. Consider a 12:00 or 12:30pm reservation. After lunch and perhaps a favourite attraction (and a quick stop to pose for photos in front of the Tree of Life of course!), jump on a bus straight over to Hollywood Studios.

    Fantasmic! appears to currently be showing nightly during the month of August, and at 9:00pm on August 16th. Based on this information, Characterpalooza will likely take place beginning at about 4:45pm until 6:30pm.

    After your fun with the Characters, head out the front gates and jump on the Friendship Boat over to Epcot. I'd recommend a dinner reservation at Teppan Edo for 7:00/7:30pm to allow time to eat before enjoying IllumiNations which is at 9:00pm that evening. Watching IllumiNations from the upper 'balcony' that runs along the side of Teppan Edo is actually a great viewing location.

    Call Disney Dining Reservations at (407) WDW-DINE just as soon as you can to make all your reservations.

    Wishing you a fabulous time celebrating your sister's Sweet Sixteen at Walt Disney World Mariah!
