    Hi Nicole.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.
    Here's how I'd recommend that you plan your days to accommodate your dining reservations:

    8/25 - Epcot: Since your dinner is an early one, you'll have plenty of time to arrive early to secure a good viewing spot for IllumiNations which is at 9pm.

    8/26 - Magic Kingdom: Arrive early, by 8:30am to watch the Park Opening show at the gates. Catch the afternoon parade at 3:00pm and Wishes at 9:00pm.

    8/27 - Animal Kingdom: Park opens at 9:00am. Catch the afternoon parade at 3:45pm before heading to Downtown Disney for dinner and an evening of shopping and fabulous nightlife. Consider a reservation for dinner.

    8/28 - Back to Epcot. The park opens at 9:00am. After your delicious lunch, enjoy a stroll around the 'world' at a leisurely pace. Visit the neighboring BoardWalk Area in the evening for food and fun.

    8/29 - Hollywood Studios: Park opens at 9:00am. Pixar parade at 3:00pm and Fantasmic! at 8:30pm. Arrive at 7:30pm for seating for this amazing show.

    8/30 - Enjoy some resort pool time or head back into the girls' favorite park. Enjoy a spectacular evening at Spirit of Aloha at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Leave at 7pm to head to your reservation. You can get there via Magic Kingdom and the monorail, or direct bus via a park or Downtown Disney.

    8/31 - Magic Kingdom today followed by your fun meal at the Grand Floridian. Get there by boat or monorail. Watch Wishes and the Electric Water Pageant from the beach at the resort after dinner. Wishes is at 9:00pm.

    If you'd like specific attraction or show recommendations, or additional dining suggestions, please don't hesitate to write me back Nicole! I have limited space in this single answer, but I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a Magical time at Walt Disney World!
