    Hi Doug! Back again for one of your fabulous itineraries. 08/17/13 (10:30 am) to 08/24/13 (4:30 pm) staying SSR with DH, 3 DS (15,4,4). Have annual passes but not doing water parks this trip. Will have a car and do daily naps/pool time. Thanks!

    Linda from Ontario! Long time no type!

    So what shall we do on this trip? Decisions, decisions, decisions.

    Here is where I would go;

    • August 17 - Arrival Day: Downtown Disney
    • August 18 - Magic Kingdom (all day, with evening Extra Magic Hours)
    • August 19 - Epcot
    • August 20 - Magic Kingdom
    • August 21 - Hollywood Studios
    • August 22 - Animal Kingdom (am) / Epcot or BoardWalk (pm) 
    • August 23 - Magic Kingdom
    • August 24 - Departure Day: Hollywood Studios (with morning Extra Magic Hours)
    So of course you could go to a park on your arrival day, but you are regulars. Why deal with a crowded park on a VERY BUSY day? I would take a resort swim, then make an afternoon/evening of it at Downtown Disney. 

    I am mostly avoiding Extra Magic Hours, due to the busier time of the year. But a few, like on your departure day, are going to help you get the most out of your time. 

    Write me back if you have any more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
