    Bret C use to create itineraries for families based on their stay days, are any of the new moms panal members taking on this task or is there a way to contact Bret C? We are traveling Sept 10th - 18th 2011, but will not hit parks on the 1st or last day?

    Hi Jennifer!

    There are many ways to create an itinerary for your vacation.  For example, you might visit the parks based on expected emotional impacts.  In that case, I recommend visiting the Magic Kingdom first, then Epcot, then Disney's Hollywood Studios, and finally Disney's Animal Kingdom.  You have time to revisit your favorite park or hit a water park (or just relax at your hotel).

    Another way is to visit a specific park based on the expected crowds.  For example, some parks are historically more crowded on some days than others.  If this is what you had in mind, then I recommend going over to the independent website  That's the website for the "Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They have a crowd calendar that I have found to be a very useful planning tool.  Their recommendations are based on years of data collection and a lot of math!  I'm a huge fan of their work!

    Enjoy planning your vacation!
