    Hi Doug! Planning a trip 04/23 to 05/01(no park that day), staying at AKL, have a DD 7, DD 5, DS turning 2 the day we arrive! WE have Chef Mickey reservations 04/23 and Asherkus dinner on 04/27, have any advice on which parks to visit when? No park hopper


    Here is what I would do;

    • April 23 - Magic Kingdom
    • April 24 - Hollywood Studios
    • April 25 - Epcot
    • April 26 - Animal Kingdom
    • April 27 - Epcot
    • April 28 - Hollywood Studios
    • April 29 - Magic Kingdom
    • April 30 - Magic Kingdom
    • May 1 - Departure Day
    With a 7, 5, and 2 year old, the Magic Kingdom will hold the most for you. But Hollywood Studios comes in a close second.

    Something you might consider is visiting the BoardWalk in the evening of one of your Epcot or Hollywood Studios days. It would be easy to get there from either park (walk from Epcot, boat from Hollywood Studios), and the "walk" offers some great, easy-going, and G-rated evening entertainment for your family. Then you can make your way back to the park's transportation to get home at the end of the night.

    Let me know if you need some help with dining suggestions. Just tell me when you need a meal, what kind (table vs. counter, cuisine likes/dislikes, characters/shows/other) and I am glad to assist!

    Have a magical vacation!
