    First trip to WDW can you help w/itinerary? Arriving 8/31 2pm & departing 9/5 6:30pm. PORiverside. I have 6 day park passes. My must dos are Spirit of Aloha dinner, Fantasmic!, Wishes Nighttime Spec. Sons 9&5. if time BayouPirateCruise & Chip'n


    Unfortunately all the Extra Magic Hour schedules are not yet posted, but here is my suggestion;
    • August 31 - See arrival day suggestions
    • September 1 - Magic Kingdom (Wishes)
    • September 2 - Hollywood Studios (Fantasmic!)
    • September 3 - Animal Kingdom
    • September 4 - Epcot (watch IllumiNations)
    • September 5 - Magic Kingdom
    Arrival Day: Since you won't get settled in until late afternoon, I wouldn't spend a ton of money on a park ticket for this day. Instead relax into your vacation with some pool time at your resort, and then a festive opening night dinner. I would say this is an ideal night for the Spirit of Aloha dinner. Actually, for my family's vacation this is EXACTLY what we do.

    Departure Day: Even with the Magical Express early departure, you still have enough for a day at a park. Since there is more to do at the Magic Kingdom, I expect this will be the park of choice for you. But you could leave it open to a last minute decision, based on what you enjoy the most on the earlier visits.

    Have a magical vacation!
