    Hi Doug, I see you have alot of loyal followers waiting for the Aug calendars! Ur answers r great! Q - DH, DDs 12,10,8 arrive 7/30 at noon, which park MK or Epcot for first day? Epcot has EMH til midnight. ADR at Ohana 5:00, should I change or what? Tks


    While I always recommend that the Magic Kingdom be a first stop for most visitors, I would opt for Epcot in your case. You will really want to get all that extra time to make it feel like you got a really full park day in on that first day!

    As for dinner, I like 'Ohana, but would cancel that Advanced Dining Reservation. Your kids will revolt against you if you take them to a park, then leave for dinner ,and then back to the park. Either go for a table service restaurant in the World Showcase, or consider just dining by nibbling "around the world".

    If I can help with restaurant suggestions, let me know some of your likes/dislikes in another question. I have some great ideas, but don't want to suggest something you may hate!

    Have a magical vacation!
