    I'm going (family of 4; 2 girls 12 and 7) for a week in June. I'm traveling with another family of 4; 2 girls also, 12 and 8.. I have purchased a 3 day park hopper w/water and need some suggestions on covering 4 parks in 3 days. 1 family has never been.

    HI Laurie!

    The best advise I can offer to you is to arrive at each park as early as you can.  If you can be there right when the park opens that would be even better.  The park tends to be less full first thing in the morning than at any other time of the day.  This will help you get more rides done with shorter wait times.  You will also want to take advantage of the fast pass service.  Let me give you an example of what we do when we visit Epcot.  We arrive when the park opens and the first thing we do is we get a fast pass for Test Track. Next we head straight to Soarin.  The line up for Soarin this early in the morning is not very long.  By the time we get off that ride we have enough time to do another ride before our call back time on our fast pass for Test Track comes up.  Now we don't have a long wait at Test Track so we can get in a fourth ride rather quickly.  Another bit of advise I can offer you is for both your families to sit down together and look at each park map.  Make a list of all the rides and attractions you want to see and do and make a plan.  If you have an idea of where your going it will help you navigat the park much quicker.

    Have a magical vacation!
