    Doug, I have an itinerary? Due to time difference b/t AK & FL, kids won't wake up until 10, get to MK/EP @ 11 & leave @ 3:30 for naps. We have 5 days b/t the 2 parks. Can you suggest a plan. I know 11-4 is busiest time @ parks .DD3.5 DS2 no thrill


    I am assuming that you are not going to be able to get them on Florida time during the trip? Assuming not, you have some good news that comes with this.

    First, since your clocks are on a different time zone than everyone else, you will be able to get many more of the meal reservations at the times you desire than the average guest.

    Second, and more importantly is the evening Extra Magic Hours. While few parents of 2 and 3 year olds can keep their kids up to take full advantage of the 3+ hours of evening Extra Magic Hours, you will! This is a HUGE bonus, assuming you are staying at a Disney resort. Make sure you pick whatever park had evening Extra Magic Hours each day as your park to visit. You can find these out from the website calendar, or if you send me your travel dates, I am glad to recommend a daily schedule.

    Also let me know if you have a park hopper, and if you need any restaurant suggestions.

    Have a magical vacation!
