    Hello, I need help in figuring a schedule for the days that I will be at DW.We will arrive Aug 16 @ 4:30 at the airport and will be leaving Aug 25, flight leaves 3:30. Will we have any time to do anything our very first and last day?This site is AWESOME

    Thanks for writing the Moms Panel Andrew! You can certainly spend your first evening at a theme park - both Epcot and the Hollywood Studios are open until 9 pm on August 16. The Magic Kingdom is open until 10 pm, and if you're staying at a Disney resort, you can enjoy evening Extra Magic Hours (EMH) until 1 am! I'm not sure how long a travel day you have on the 16th, but a few years ago we flew in around the same time, dropped our things and ran to make our dinner reservation at the Crystal Palace. It was EMH that night too, and we planned on staying all night. About an hour in, I had to carry my then seven year-old back to the hotel. Now we spend our first night exploring the resort and heading for a dinner and shopping at Downtown Disney.

    If you're taking the Magical Express back to the airport on the 25th, your pickup time will be at approximately 12:30. All of the theme parks open at 9 am on your last day, so if you arrive early, you can get a few of your favourite rides in!

    Have a magical vacation!
