    Hi there, Jennifer!

    If laid-back is what you are looking for, I'd recommend allowing your reservations to drive your itinerary.

    That will allow you to see each of the Parks while still permitting you the ability to "meander" without too much scheduling.

    26 - arrival
    27 - Chef Mickey, with Epcot (easy on the monorail line!)
    28 - Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue with Magic Kingdom (easy transportation back and forth from Fort Wilderness)
    29 - Disney's Hollywood Studios
    30 - Free Day - consider repeating Magic Kingdom or Epcot
    31 - Disney's Animal Kingdom
    1 - departure

    Lots of sites offer crowd predictor services; the best of these, which uses extensive historical data, is It might be worth your while to have a look to make sure this itinerary matches up with crowd levels. Because it is Christmas week, however, do prepare yourself for high attendance levels at all Parks. It's wonderful to share the holidays with like-minded Disney fans!

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
