    Hi, Jenn: will be @WDW first time w/DH, DD 7 & DS4 @ASMo. Flight arrives 3:30 pm on sat 9/19 & we leave sat 9/26 9:30am. What parks can we visit on which days (less crowded)? Have H2O option, no park hopper, planning 4 theme parks + repeat fav, 1 H

    Hey Angie! How exciting as your first trip is only a few months away.  Okay on your first day since you arrive at 3:30 that will pretty much be a travel day.  If the kids want to do something, then I highly recommend a trip to Downtown Disney.  That is a great way to get everyone excited about the days ahead.  There are fun shops and great restaurants.
    As far as crowds at each park, that is such a tough question, but here is what I know.  Most guide books will tell you that Monday's are typically the most crowded at MK.  EMH's do also tend to draw larger crowds,  However, my own personal opinion is that this is more the case for nighttime EMH's rather than AM hours.  Check your dates with the calendar on the web to identify which dates are EMH dates at which parks.  With the ages of your kids, I am guessing you might be hitting MK twice, but I think you have a fantastic plan.
    Remember if you get to a park and find it overly crowded, take advantage of the fast pass system.  If you are early risers, then hit the parks when they open and head straight to the most popular attractions as the crowds at these will only grow longer as the day goes on.
    I am running out of room, but do hope these suggestions help.  If you have more questions, just email me back here at the Mom's Panel.  Thanks and have a magical vacation.
