    Hello! Family of 3 w/ age 4 son. Arrive 4/21/12 11AM Depart 4/27/12 7PM. PH option only. We are staying at WL. We want to do Chef Mickey's and Ohana for dinner for sure. No DP. I've redone my itenerary many times. How would you plan each day? Need help!

    Hi Jill!

    How exciting to be going to Walt Disney World and staying at Wilderness Lodge!  You will have a fantastic time.  The way I always start to plan my itinerary is go to the Park Hours and Update website. I look at what theme park has Extra Magic hours to take advantage of less crowds.  On April 22nd, Magic Kingdom is open until 1am.  I would use this day for either Chef Mickey's or Ohana.  The monorail can take you to either the Contemporary or  Disney's Polynesian Resort from Magic Kingdom. On April 23rd, Disney's Hollywood Studios is open until 12am so I would plan my day there.  Epcot is open at 8am on the 24th and you can take advantage of a full day and plan a late dinner at either Chef Mickey's or Ohana as again they are both on the monorail.  Since you are within the 180 day reservation window for dining, I would call and make the dinner reservations now.  Animal Kingdom is open at 8am on the 25th and that is a fantastic time to go visit Kilimanjaro Safari and get Fast Passes for Expedition Everest.  Finally on the 26th, Magic Kingdom is open at 8am and it is a wonderful way to beat the crowds.  I hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
