    This is our first visit as a family (I was there 20 yrs ago) we want to make the most of it. We are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge December 9-15. We have 5 day park passes(no hopper). My kids are 4 and 6. Any suggestions for itinerary?


    Enjoy your ‘first’ visit, which is what it will seem like for you as well!

    You will love your hotel! It is great!

    Here is where I would go;

    • December 9 – Arrival Day
    • December 10 – Magic Kingdom
    • December 11 - Animal Kingdom
    • December 12 – Hollywood Studios
    • December 13 – Magic Kingdom
    • December 14 - Epcot
    • December 15 – Departure Day

    Make sure you take advantage of your Extra Magic Hours, as they will give you even more time in the parks! Also, try several of the restaurants in your resort (both the Lodge and Villas areas) as they are ALL great!

    Write me back if I can help more!

    Have a magical vacation!
