    Hi Doug! Trying to plan our first trip and would like some input on our intinerary and meals. 4A/ 3kids(5,3,1) 10/9-10/16,5day pass, 10/10-MK/Elec.Parade/Wishes 10/11-Epcot 10/12-AK/ Halloween Party 10/13-swim/rest day 10/14-HS 10/15-MK. Thank you!

    Stephanie,

    You are there at such an ideal time! Low crowds, great weather, what more could you ask for? I particularly love the pool/rest day! So many guests get wrapped up in the “Got to see it all” mentality that they forget to stop, relax, and enjoy!

    I think your park plan is perfect! But remember with younger children (like I have!), you have to keep a keen eye on their energy levels. Don’t hesitate to head back to the room for nap/quiet time. We (and I include myself in this “we”) often overestimate what our young children can do. We wear them out and wonder why they are grumpy!

    I would suggest that EVERY day has time planned back at the resort for quiet time, if convenient. Otherwise, I think you nailed it! I am especially impressed that the day AFTER your night out at the park party you have a day of relaxation. Should be ideal!

    Have a magical vacation!
