    Hi Doug, I am staying at the AKL 4/21 arrive noon -4/28 lv in AM. I would like to plan the week and try and avoid the worst of the crowds but still take advantage of the PM parades and shows. Also like to work around grad night crowds. Any ideas? thanks


    So I don’t know exactly what your group is like to know how much to send you to the Magic Kingdom, vs. the other parks. Here is a general schedule, though if you think you have too much time at the Magic Kingdom I would recommend changing your day on the 25th to an Epcot visit.

    For the weekend of grad nights, most agree that Epcot is packed (celebration dinners at the variety of World Showcase restaurants), and of course the Magic Kingdom is always popular. If on those nights you can make it an earlier night and not schedule your fireworks watching to those evenings, you will go a long way to avoiding the biggest crowds.

    • April 21 – Magic Kingdom
    • April 22 – Epcot
    • April 23 – Animal Kingdom
    • April 24 – Hollywood Studios
    • April 25 – Magic Kingdom
    • April 26 – Hollywood Studios
    • April 27 – Magic Kingdom
    • April 28 – Departure Day

    Feel free to send me some follow up questions, especially for dining recommendations!

    Have a magical vacation!
