    You have some great meals planned there! They also help dictate where you go, to a degree. Based on those, here is where I would go;

    • July 31 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • August 1 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • August 2 - Epcot (all day)
    • August 3 - Animal Kingdom (all day)
    • August 4 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Hollywood Studios (PM)
    • August 5 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • August 6 - Epcot (am) / Downtown Disney (PM)
    • August 7 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • August 8 - Departure Day
    Now you will see that I don't have you hopping a lot. That is not to say that you should get rid of your hoppers. Just think of these as your "base" parks for the day. If you feel like a change, then move to another park. But only do so if you really feel like you need the change of venue. You are there on fairly busy days, and any time you move from one park to another equals a lot of time in transportation instead of on a ride.

    I hope that this helps! Let me know if you need some guidance on other meals, especially quick service ideas!

    Have a magical vacation!
