    Doug visiting again(last oct) w/kids 6,3,1. Staying Poly for travel convenience on nov 15-21. Have the hopper but was thinking of downgrading bc last time only usedit once for dining. Thinking of no AK or leaving to last day. Thoughts? Schedule ideas?


    I have kids the same age (except for the 6 year old), and with them I find the Park Hoppers to not be of much value. With the little ones we just don't move around fast enough to get more than one park in during any given day. So I would say to pass on it.

    As for skipping Animal Kingdom, I love it. But if your family didn't adore it, you can always skip it to get more out of the rest of your vacation. Assuming you skip it, here is what I would do;

    • November 15 - Arrival Day
    • November 16 - Magic Kingdom
    • November 17 - Epcot
    • November 18 - Hollywood Studios
    • November 19 - Park of Choice or Animal Kingdom
    • November 20 - Magic Kingdom
    • November 21 - Departure Day
    FYI, I assumed no parks on arrival or departure day. If that is not the case, write me back with what days you have time for a park.

    Have a magical vacation!
