    Hey Doug, Stephanie from PA again...our flight gets in at 9am on arrival day, and we do not leave til 6pm on our last day...also, we are staying at CBR. With that said, any thoughts on change in itinerary?


    Great to hear from you again! Love those repeat questions!

    Knowing now that you probably can experience fairly complete days on your arrival and departure days, I would say that you can get even more in without feeling too overwhelmed on those days. Here is how I would change things;

    May 4 - Magic Kingdom
    May 5 - Animal Kingdom
    May 6 - Magic Kingdom
    May 7 - Epcot
    May 8 - Hollywood Studios
    May 9 - Epcot
    May 10 - Magic Kingdom
    May 11 - Hollywood Studios
    • I have you spending your departure day at Hollywood Studios, as it is closer to your resort than the Animal Kingdom or Magic Kingdom.
    • You are at the Magic Kingdom on your last full day. Despite the fact that I prefer not to have you visit a park when it has morning Extra Magic Hours, I do think it important for your family to have your last full, un-rushed day there.
    • If you are taking the Magical Express from your resort to the airport, you will probably have a pickup time from the resort of around 3pm. So you should be able to stay at the Hollywood Studios park through the lunch hour, leaving at around 1pm, to be sure to catch your ride.
    What's next?

    Have a magical vacation!
