    Hi Doug, I was wondering how you thought I should plan my trip (park-wise). Will arrive @ airport Wednesday Jan 5 @ 11:30 (taking magical express) staying at GF, flight leaves Jan 10 @ 11:30. DD's are 5 and 9. You have helped me so much already! Thanks


    Thanks for the question. It is my final one for 2010, before I retire from the panel for 2011, so I hope I get the answer right!

    So here is where I would go;

    • January 5 - Magic Kingdom
    • January 6 - Animal Kingdom
    • January 7 - Epcot
    • January 8 -  Hollywood Studios
    • January 9 - Magic Kingdom
    • January 10 - Departure Day

    For your departure day, I would plan a great exit breakfast, if you have the time. On my last family trip we did 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian, and loved it. But your kids are older than mine, so you might find going to Whispering Canyon Cafe a bit more fun. But with an 11:30 am flight, you are likely to have an 8:30 am Magical Express pick-up time, so you might just be doing a quick service breakfast that day. Plan accordingly, based on when your kids typically wake-up.

    Have a magical vacation!
