    Doug, 1st trip. DS 4 & DD 2. Staying WL. Oct 12-17. Need game plan. Want ADRs @ CM, Mickey's BBQ or Hoop DEE, Whispering Canyon, & maybe Garden Grill. MNSSHP 12th.Sound good. Please help w/scheduling. Have park hopper. Thanks.


    Glad to help, and you will love the Wilderness Lodge!

    I would recommend that you plan for daily returns to your resort for nap/pool/quiet time. That way when you "park hop" you are not wasting a lot of extra time traveling, since you would be returning to a park anyway. Here is what I would do;

    • October 12 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
      • Dinner: Hoop Dee Doo Review
    • October 13 - Epcot (all day)
    • October 14 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • October 15 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
      • Dinner: Mickey's BBQ
    • October 16 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
      • Lunch: 50's Prime Time Cafe
    • October 17 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
      • Breakfast: Chef Mickey's

    With hopping, consider that you could take good benefit of that option by choosing park-based restaurants for many evenings and not have to worry about where you started your day.

    I assumed you were arriving on the 12th and leaving on the 17th, so limited in park time on both days.

    I recommended one restaurant per day, to start you off. Send me another question with what you are looking for, and I can re-do recommendations.

    Have a magical vacation!
