    Hi Melissa!

    Making dining reservations is always one of my first steps to making an itinerary for my vacation, the dining locations are just as fun as the attractions!  Since you have fabulous reservations ready to go, you have already one step ahead.

    Arriving early will save you lots of time from waiting in line for very popular attractions.Each park has attractions that will have waits and I like to hit these first thing in the morning, during a parade or later in the evening.Using FastPass+ or regular FastPass is also a great opportunity to minimize your waits.This is my list of attractions to check-out first for each park:

    Magic Kingdom- Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Journey of The Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle and Peter Pan's Flight.

    Epcot- Soarin, Mission Space and Test Track

    Hollywood Studios- Rock 'n Roller Coaster, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania and The legend of Captain Jack Sparrow

    Animal Kingdom- Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safari (the animals are usually more active in the morning), Expedition Everest, and Dinosaur

    Meeting characters is also very popular and will usually have long waits.I recommend this first thing in the morning,during parades and in the evening to avoid the long waits.Make sure to check your times guides to see when your favorite characters will be available.

    Here's what I recommend:

    Feb. 2 Magic Kingdom
    Feb. 3 Epcot (You may want to hop over to Magic Kingdom if you have a football fan, historically there is a parade for the SuperBowl winners then Monday after the big game.)
    Feb. 4 Animal Kingdom
    Feb. 5 Epcot
    Feb. 6 Pool Day/ Explore other resorts
    Feb. 7 Hollywood Studios

    I hope this helps, Melissa!  Please visit me again if you need anymore advice or help planning your upcoming vacation.

    Happy Planning!
