    I'm going to Disney movies 21-25. How should I plan the parks on which day. I have looked at crowd level and tracker but also want to hear from moms. On the 23 I am doing Epcot because I have morning breakfast with characters. Should I book a few dinners?

    Hello Terry!

    What an exciting time to be planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I just love the holidays at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Although it will be busier visiting during high crowd times, it is totally doable and just takes a little patience, planning and flexibility. I tend to go against the Crowd Calendars in that I like to visit the parks which have Extra Magic Hours available. My schedule would probably look like this:

    11/21 - Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    11/22 - Disney's Hollywood Studios - Plan for a later day and stay for evening Extra Magic Hours
    11/23 - Epcot
    11/24 - Magic Kingdom Park
    11/25 - Whichever we felt like visiting again - If possible, evening Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom Park

    Of course, the exact schedule would depend on arrival and departure time, and also if you will have Park Hopper tickets or not. I would definitely try to plan a sit-down lunch or dinner just because they provide a nice break from the crowds and place to regather and regroup. I would love to help you further, so if there is anything else I am able to assist you with, please let me know. 

    Have a wonderful vacation!

    Magical Wishes,
