    Hi Doug you give excellent advice! I was wondering if you can help plan our vacation ? we will arrive June 10 around 11 am and then depart June 17. we have 7 day park hopper tickets. it will be me, husband, son 12 daughter almost 5 Thanks so much


    Glad to help!

    While the Park Hopper is a great feature, I will try to get you using it as little as possible, as moving between parks is time on a bus, not time on a ride!

    Here is what I would do;

    • June 10 - Epcot (PM)
    • June 11 - Magic Kingdom (All day)
    • June 12 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • June 13 - Animal Kingdom (most of day) / Magic Kingdom (evening)
    • June 14 - Epcot (all day)
    • June 15 - Hollywood Studios (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • June 16 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • June 17 - Departure Day
    For your arrival day, focus on the World Showcase and enjoy a nice opening night dinner that really kicks things off.

    On your departure day, if you have time, plan a fun breakfast at one of the resorts. Write me back with where you are staying and I can suggest a few ideas.

    Consider your Park Hopper feature a perk that helps you if you want dinner at a different park.

    Finally, consider visiting Downtown Disney, Water Parks, or the BoardWalk, on the 14th or 12th.

    I welcome your follow-up questions, especially if you want dining suggestions!

    Have a magical vacation!
