    During our rest day, we want to visit a number of places. Would you be able to tell me in which order it makes the most sense? Sanaa, ESPN expo (between 10 and 3), Jock Lindsey's, boat ride, Wilderness Lodge, O'hana (dinner), monorail ride.

    Hi there, Valerie!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for stopping by with your vacation planning question. It sounds like you are planning for a day jam-packed full of fun - I like your style! My friends and I here at planDisney are here to help you make the most of your time at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Valerie, I see that your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just over a month away. Are you counting down the days yet!? You're in for a memorable vacation, because you'll be visiting during the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. During this special celebration, you'll see the theme park icons transformed into spectacular Beacons of Magic and you'll experience special PhotoPass Magic Shots, celebratory dining offerings, and more!

    In order to fit all of your must-dos into one magical day, I'd recommend the following: Head to ESPN Wide World of Sports right at 10:00 a.m. by utilizing runDisney Expo Transportation from your Disney Resort hotel. From the expo, hop on a runDisney Expo Transportation shuttle to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village for an incredible lunch at Sanaa. Next, utilize the complimentary Walt Disney World Bus Service to get to Disney Springs and grab a drink at Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar - I recommend Reggie's Revenge! From Disney Springs, take the bus to Disney's Wilderness Lodge and soak in the splendor and majesty of the American Great Northwest. To continue your adventurous Disney day, board a water taxi for a relaxing cruise across Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon to Magic Kingdom Park. From there, head to the Resort Monorail and enjoy a scenic ride to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for a family-style feast at my favorite Walt Disney World Resort restaurant - 'Ohana! (As a bonus, stick around Seven Seas Lagoon after your meal to see the dazzling and whimsical Electrical Water Pageant!) When you're ready to return home to your Disney Resort hotel for the night, take the Resort Monorail back to Magic Kingdom Park and catch the bus.

    I hope this information helps you to plan your perfect Disney day, Valerie. Best of luck as you continue your vacation planning, and please stop back anytime with additional questions! We're here to help. I'm wishing you a vacation filled with magical memories!

    See ya real soon,
