    Doug I'm needing your expert advice!!! I will be visiting Disney 12/1-12/6, we have the dining plan and park hopper tickets. What do you think is the best itinerary for us, i'm wanting my in-laws to experience the best of Disney, they are first timers! !


    Here is where I would go, giving them that good view into all four parks on their first visit;

    • December 1 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • December 2 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Hollywood Studios (PM)
    • December 3 - Epcot (all day)
    • December 4 - Animal Kingdom (AM & afternoon) / Downtown Disney or park of choice
    • December 5 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • December 6 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    Now I don't have you hopping. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But with a first visit I would stick to a park, and not spend unnecessary time traveling between parks. But by all means hop parks if you are getting bored with where you are.

    So what is next? Need some dining suggestions? Write me back with the following;

    1. Where you will be (park/resort/etc.)?
    2. What you want to eat (table service/counter service)?
    3. Cuisine preferences (or dislikes)?
    I love helping with dining suggestions!

    Have a magical vacation!
