    My family is heading to WDW in July - we are getting the 5 fday hopper pass and staying Sunday-Sunday. What do you recommend is a good schedule? My kiddos will be 2 and 4 and a half

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Nicole!  Congratulations on your Walt Disney World Vacation!  July will be here before you know it!   Your children are the perfect age to experience all the magic and wonder of Disney!  I would recommend spending Sunday getting settled into your Resort and getting a good night's rest before heading to the parks on Monday morning. I would allow two days for Magic Kingdom and one day for the other Disney parks. I would recommend doing parks on Monday and Tuesday and then taking a break from the parks on Wednesday. I have found three consecutive park days to be too much with small children. We love having a "Resort Day" (non-park day) to catch up on some much needed rest and also enjoy our Disney Resort or visit Downtown Disney. I would then visit a park on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, you may want to sleep in and then either make that your second day at Magic Kingdom to end your vacation with or enjoy Epcot. We usually try to get to the parks at park opening and then head back to our Disney Resort in the early afternoon for a midday break/nap. We then reenter the parks in the early evening!  You can visit the Disney Parks Calendar by following this link to go ahead and view the Park Hours for your vacation dates.  I hope this helps!  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you, Nicole!  Best wishes for a Magical Trip!
    Happy Planning,
