    Hi Doug, were staying at saratoga springs Sept 9-17,joining up with grandparents 12-15. I would like yr recommnedations on park planning days. Do you receommend planning dinners? which water park is the best . children 8 & 12 we all love rides etc.


    First off, absolutely you should plan out your dinners. Since there is a free dining plan promotion, the table service restaurants will be abnormally booked up during this time, so having some advance dining reservations will make your trip more pleasant. I would especially focus on a fun dinner on the 14th that all ages like at Epcot, like perhaps Biergarten, Le Cellier, or Les Chefs de France.

    As for the water park, with your group, I would suggest Blizzard Beach. I think that your kids will find the water "thrill rides" there more exciting.

    For parks, here is where I would go;

    • September 9 - Magic Kingdom
    • September 10 - Epcot
    • September 11 - Hollywood Studios
    • September 12 - Magic Kingdom
    • September 13 - Hollywood Studios
    • September 14 - Epcot
    • September 15 - Animal Kingdom
    • September 16 - Blizzard Beach
    • September 17 - Magic Kingdom
    Write me back if you have the park hopper, or if you are looking for multiple days at water parks!

    Have a magical vacation!
