    Hi Doug. Our WDW visit is 11/28-12/4. Leave Sat AM. We have 4 park tickets--no hopper. 1 ADR on Tue at 0740 Cape May. First for hubby and 5-yr-old. What parks do you recommend on which day and a dining location at each? Have dining plan. Thx.


    So based on the assumption of no park on either your arrival or departure days, here is what I would do. Also, it looked as if you were saying you had 4 park days on your tickets. If I am wrong, let me know and I can write a new plan.

    Initial Plan
    • November 29 - Magic Kingdom
    • November 30 - Epcot
    • December 1 - Resort day!
    • December 2 - Animal Kingdom
    • December 3 - Hollywood Studios

    So with a first visit you might find that you really need more than 1 day at the Magic Kingdom, to the expense of a day at one of the other parks. I Would say with a 5-year old that Epcot is your best 'opt-out' of the three, but you will have to decide. Either way, here is a plan with two days at the Magic Kingdom.

    More Magic Kingdom Please! Plan
    • November 29 - Magic Kingdom
    • November 30 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 1 - Resort day!
    • December 2 - Animal Kingdom
    • December 3 - Magic Kingdom

    As for dining, here is one suggestion of a table service for each park:
    • Magic Kingdom: 'Ohana or Chef Mickey's, at nearby Polynesian and Contemporary resorts
    • Epcot: Rose and Crown
    • Hollywood Studios: 50s Prime Time Cafe
    • Animal Kingdom: Tusker House

    Let me know how you might need this tweaked!

    Have a magical vacation!
