    8/4-8/9. figured 1 world each day using extended hrs for each. want to do character, hoopdido and luau.Staying at Animation resort. Which days best for each getting the most time at each world allowing travel time to each. Please help me map it out.Thanks


    Here is where I would go to get the most out of my time at Walt Disney World;

    • August 4 - Arrival Day
    • August 5 - Hollywood Studios (Evening Extra Magic Hours)
    • August 6 - Epcot (Evening Extra Magic Hours)
    • August 7 - Animal Kingdom (Morning Extra Magic Hours)
    • August 8 - Magic Kingdom (Morning Extra Magic Hours)
    • August 9 - Departure Day
    As for your other special plans, I would recommend that you plan going to the Hoop Dee Doo Review on the evening of the 7th, since the Animal Kingdom park is closed by 7 pm anyway. As for the Luau, I would suggest you do that on your arrival evening as a way to kick off your trip. Finally, for the character experience I would focus on a breakfast, as opposed to lunch or even dinner, so as to not eat into (no pun intended) your park hours. Schedule something for prior to park opening. If your first choice is something inside a park, all the better. My favorite is Donald's Safari Breakfast in the Animal Kingdom, but go with whatever appeals to you!

    Write me back with any follow-up questions, and we can work on this some more!

    Have a magical vacation!
