    Hi Doug, I did make a mistake on my question (OOPS). We are coming back to WDW 11/10/13 to 11/15/13. Will the itinerary you provided just shift for plans? Thank you so much for your help!


    That is OK. It is still a good plan to think far ahead. But know that you won't probably want to finalize what park on what day until you know what the Extra Magic Hours and major party nights are at the Magic Kingdom. So really you will probably want to chat with me around April/May 2013.

    But the general rules still apply. They are;

    • When you can, start and end your vacation at the Magic Kingdom. It is the biggest park (in terms of most attractions, not actual square footage), and it has the most to do for most families.
    • Plan a day per park at the other parks (Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios) for every two days that you would spend at the Magic Kingdom.
    • Make sure you have evening plans elsewhere (like at another park, Downtown Disney, or the BoardWalk) for any day where you are going to the Animal Kingdom. It is a very beautiful park at night, but with much less to do than during the daytime.
    So write me back in April and we can re-set the daily plan!

    Have a magical vacation!
