    Itinerary help, please! Arriving late 6/9/13 for 8 night stay. This is our 5th trip, but 1st time in summer and I'm worried about crowds. Want 1 day at Typhoon Lagoon. Have Park Hopper. Kids love all the "big" rides (DS 8 and DD 6). Thank yo

    Hi Marcy!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  I really appreciate it!

    I am going to assume your first day and last day are not full days.  Thus I'd suggest something along the following for your trip:
    • 6/9 - Explore Downtown Disney
    • 6/10 - Epcot
    • 6/11 - Disney's Animal Kingdom
    • 6/12 - Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • 6/13 - Magic Kingdom
    • 6/14 - Typhoon Lagoon
    • 6/15 - Magic Kingdom
    • 6/16 - Return to Your Favorite Park
    • 6/17 - Leave Walt Disney World

    With relatively young children I don't think it's that important to hop from one park to another unless there is some compelling reason such as you want to enjoy the world class restaurants in Epcot each night.  Also, you will have to adjust your schedule based on the weather to help ensure that your visit to Typhoon Lagoon is on a good day. 

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
