    Coming Aug 16-23 with two adults and two kids (16,10). Will have 7 day hoppers. We arrive early on the 16th (can be in a park by 2:00)and leave early on the 23rd. Can you recommend a schedule? Will want all 4 parks, DD but no water parks. Thanks!!!

    Hi Sandra!

    In the next few weeks, we should know the August operating hours in order to build a solid itinerary. Once hours are released, I like to plan the parks based on Extra Magic Hours. Are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel in order to take advantage of this perk? Although always subject to change, these hours will allow you to get every ounce of magic out of your park hoppers. I also like to begin and end our vacations with a trip to Magic Kingdom. With a 7-day hopper, you can be sure to hit each park both in the a.m. and p.m. to enjoy shorter lines during the early hours and see the evening entertainment at closing time. Here's a rough draft example:
    day 1: MK after arrival
    day 2: EP, DHS
    day 3: MK, EP
    day 4: AK, Downtown Disney
    day 5: DHS, EP 
    day 6: AK, explore resorts
    day 7: DHS, MK

    You'll be able to take your time exploring each park and I can't wait to help you plan your days once hours are released. I look forward to hearing back from you!

    Best wishes,
