    We will be coming to WDW in August. We will be arriving on Wednesday and flying out on a Saturday. We have been to Magic Kingdom before, but not to the other parks. How can we get the most of this time.

    Hi, Jeremy! If you are going to skip the Magic Kingdom this trip, I'd say if your first day is a short day, you might want to start with Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can get a good overview of the park with the better part of a day, and you might have the chance to see Fantasmic!, which is a great way to kick off a vacation. EPCOT is easily a full day, so use Thursday to see as much as you can here. There are so many performers and attractions, that you'll find plenty to do to fill at least one full day. Don't miss Illuminations in the evening! On your last day, hit Disney's Animal Knigdom. I like to get there early, but you should be able to see the most popular attractions in a full day. If you have park hopper passes, you may be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours to give yourself. Onus time if you are a resort guest. That will give you a little extra time to make the most of your vacation. Have a great trip!
