    Hi Doug! I know you are the one to go to for itineraries! So we were wondering if you could help us with ours. We are going May 1-8. It will me along w/ my DH & DS(20mon) his first trip. Also could you suggest some must do's. We have the park hop


    Here is what I would do;

    • May 1 - Arrival day
    • May 2 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • May 3 - Animal Kingdom (AM and early afternoon) / Downtown Disney (evening)
    • May 4 - Epcot (all day)
    • May 5 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • May 6 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • May 7 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • May 8 - Departure Day

    I did not know if you had time for a park on arrival or departure day. You may also ask, why no hopping? With very little children I like to keep to one park for the day, even if they head back for naps. That keeps them focused, somewhat.

    So what do you do with that hopper? Consider that your way to change to a different park for a special dinner reservations.

    For your arrival day, plan a good entertaining dinner, and make sure to enjoy exploring your resort.

    As to must do's, make sure you hit Toontown, get a pair of Mickey ears, and make sure to use the Baby Care Centers when your son needs a break.

    I am glad to help with more suggestions. Just write me back and ask! Tell me what you are looking for!

    Have a magical vacation!
