    Doug, We are a family of 4 adults and will be in disney world Dec. 7-16th. What do you suggest as to what parks to see on what days. Any help would be appreciated.


    I am glad to help! An all-adult trip will be fun, as you can take advantage of evening Extra Magic Hours (if you are in a Disney resort) more than families with smaller children. If you are not in a Disney resort, write me back and we can adjust. Here is where I would go;

    • December 7 - Arrival Day
    • December 8 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 9 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 10 - Animal Kingdom / BoardWalk
    • December 11 - Epcot
    • December 12 - OPEN DAY / Downtown Disney
    • December 13 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 14 - Epcot
    • December 15 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 16 - Departure Day


    So why the 12th as the "OPEN DAY"? By the evening of the 11th you will have seen all four parks. Now you have the opportunity to be a little creative. At dinner on the 11th you can chat as a group about where to go with your "Extra Day". Be spontaneous! Maybe it gives you a day to break up your group and go as solos, or couples? Why on the day where you might think it is a return to the Animal Kingdom? Well, there just is not as much to do at that park as the other three, so you might find that a second day there would not have as big of a payoff as an added day at one of the other parks.

    So that is my first recommendation. Write me back if you want to add in time for a 1/2 day at the spa, shopping, or something else!

    AND don't forget to write me back if you want to chat about dining suggestions! That is the most fun of all!

    HAve a magical vacation!
