    Hi Heidi!

    That sounds great!  Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  The best advice I can give with regards to trying to see as much as possible is to visit the independent website TouringPlans.com.  That's the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  There you will find their crowd calendar and touring plans, which are basically step by step instructions in how to see the parks to maximize the number of attractions you can experience while minimizing your wait in lines!  They are famous in the Disney fan community.

    You can use the crowd calendar to plan what park you should visit on which day and use the touring plans to help with a particular park.  If you already have Advanced Dining Reservations in certain parks on certain days, I would not change your plans.  Then just use the touring plans, which are more important anyways.

    After that, my advice is you should plan on taking a break in the afternoons.  That's especially true since you have young children.  My advice is to be at the parks first thing in the morning, then take a break after lunch, and then return in the evening.  The parks are beautiful and there are special things, such as nighttime parades, that only happen at night.  However, be careful with the fireworks!  Both of my children were terrified of the fireworks when they were as young as your children.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
