    Hello Moms and Dad! We are planning our first WDW trip for our family (myself,DH,DS-7,DD-5), we will be there 4/25-5/2. We purchased park hopper passes with waterparks. What is the best way to squeeze in trips to the waterpark during our busy days?

    Hi, Emilia!  It is hard to squeeze in everything you want to do when you head down to Walt Disney World!  It seems like no matter how long we go when we visit, I always think of something we didn't have time for when we leave! 

    If you don't think you want to do a full day at the water parks, followed by maybe a night in Downtown Disney or over at the Boardwalk area, you could do a half day at the waterpark, going in when they open and staying until about 2.  Then you could head to EPCOT or the Magic Kingdom to spend the evening, see Illuminations or Wishes, and see some of the things you may not have had time to see on a full day there.  Alternatively, you could do a morning at the theme park with extra magic hours, then leave around lunch time and spend the rest of the day at a water park, staying until they close.

    Have a great trip!  My girls love the water parks, so I hope your children do as well!
