    My family(2 adults, kids 17, 7, 5) will be at the beach club June 19-26. We have 7 day passes and I need help planning my days. How many days would you allow per park? Can you please give me a possible schedule to follow. We also have the deluxe DP.

    Hi Christy!  You will be staying in one of my favorite resorts while you are at Walt Disney World!

    I always encourage families to plan for at least one day in each park and a day for outside recreation such as boating or golf or pools.  Since you are coming in the summer I would also suggest you plan for at least one day in one of the water parks.

    Unfortunately, the June calendars have not been published yet to know which parks will have the extra magic hours on what days.  I would encourage you to use these privileges as it can be a good way to see some of the more popular attractions without the long lines. You can use the days they have posted for the first few months as a guide but understand this could change.

    Since you will be staying close to EPCOT it will give you the benefit of going in and out everyday through the International Gateway if you have the park hopper passes.  You might enjoy visiting this park early and doing a few rides and then returning to the wonderful Stormalong Bay pool area for some mid-day fun.  Then head back to EPCOT once again for more attractions, dining, and Illuminations.  You will also be close and within walking distance or a short water taxi to Hollywood Studios.  

    Animal Kingdom definitely can be seen in one day.  The Magic Kingdom will be a crowded park and  one you might want to plan for at least a day and a half  to see it all.  Plan your dining for the parks you are in during the day. It takes extra energy to leave a park for a meal if you are planning a full day there.  Many like to start their day with a character breakfast and I can recommend the Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary, or Cape May right in the Beach Club resort.

    Have a plan but don't be afraid to change mid stream if you find something special to see or do.    There are some fun and new things to do in Downtown Disney plus great dining.  Everything will be a short bus ride away for you.
