    Doug, Thanks for advice re: park hours. F/U ? What would you suggest for the weekend? DH wants to stay away from MK and Epcot, but I have heard Epcot can absorb crowds better. Thoughts? Thanks for all your help! This would be hard to plan w/o you!


    Thrilled to help!

    I find that on Saturday the busier park tends to be the Magic Kingdom and on Sunday it is Hollywood Studios. Based on that and other factors, I would say that you should hit the Animal Kingdom on Saturday, and Epcot on Sunday.

    Epcot pulls a lot of evening traffic on the weekends because of the World Showcase. It has destination restaurants because of the national cuisines, and walking around the the lagoon has grown even more popular as a nightlife destination since the closing of the Pleasure Island clubs. But these kinds of crowds are a tad bit smaller on a Sunday night, for obvious reasons, so it makes it a better night to try that out as well.

    If you don't have an interest in going to Animal Kingdom (though I think you should, it is great!), then I would do the Hollywood Studios on Saturday.

    Glad for more follow-ups!

    Have a magical vacation!
