    Hi Doug, knowing that the summer is extra crowded in WDW, I was wondering if you had some advice for where to go. Our trip is from 7/15-7/27. We plan on going to the parks for 11 days & save the first & last day for relaxing. We have a PH.


    Yes, it is crowded then. But don't let that worry you unnecessarily. The advance planning you are doing is going to help you make the most out of the trip! I particularly like your planning of relaxation days!

    Here is where I would go;

    • July 15 - Arrival Day
    • July 16 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • July 17 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • July 18 - Animal Kingdom (all day)
    • July 19 - Epcot (all day)
    • July 20 - Hollywood Studios (AM & Afternoon) / BoardWalk (evening)
    • July 21 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • July 22 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Downtown Disney (PM)
    • July 23 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • July 24 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • July 25 - Hollywood Studios (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • July 26 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • July 27 - Departure Day

    Note that just because I don't have you park hopping much does not mean you shouldn't do it. I just think that you should only park hop if a) you are going to another park for a planned meal, or b) you are just bored with whatever park you are in, and want a change of atmosphere. So change if you feel like it.

    With all this time, you might even consider a water park visit, or other special activity!

    Write me if you need more help!

    Have a magical vacation!
