    Hi, Doug: will be @WDW first time w/DH, DD 7 & DS4 @ASMo. Flight arrives 3:30 pm on a sat & we leave next sat 9:30am. what parks can we visit on which days (less crowded)? Have H2O option, no park hopper, planning 4 theme parks + repeat fav, 1 H2O,


    Without knowing exactly what days you are here, and therefore not knowing the Extra Magic Hour days, here is what I would recommend;
    • Saturday: See arrival day suggestions below!
    • Sunday: Magic Kingdom
    • Monday: Epcot
    • Tuesday: Animal Kingdom
    • Wednesday: Water Park
    • Thursday: Hollywood Studios
    • Friday: Magic Kingdo
    • For your family, I would say that Typhoon Lagoon might be the better water park, but both are fine, so go with what appeals to you.
    • As for Saturday arrival, don't waste a park ticket day. You may even be arriving too late to get swimming pool time in. What I recommend is to plan a really special dinner. Something fun, well themed, and appealing to everyone in your group to really start the trip off right. You can go with an expensive meal (Spirit of Aloha, Hoop Dee Doo Review, Mickey's Backyard BBQ) or a moderate to affordable one (Whispering Canyon Cafe, Chef Mickey's). In addition to that make sure you have time to explore your resort and all the fun decorations. But most important is that you get to bed early, so that you are fresh for your first big day at the Magic Kingdom! Have a magical vacation!
