    Hi Jodie, me again! I have the TP Crowd Calendar from last March. Is it a good idea to use this info to help plan my trip for next March? Would it still be accurate?Could u help me determine which park to visit which day, and which restaurant to reserve...

    It's so great to hEAR from you again, Danielle! That's a great question! Although I have never personally used Touring Plans, I have heard that many guests use them and have been very pleased with their recommendations. You may want to compare the Disney Park Hours for March 2013 to that from last March. If the parks offering Extra Magic Hours fall on different days from last year, I do think your Touring Plan Crowd Calendar may be inaccurate. Because I am a big advocate for taking advantage of Morning Extra Magic Hours during our Walt Disney World Vacations, I don't subscribe to Touring Plans. From what I understand, they usually recommend avoiding the parks that are offering Extra Magic Hours. I remembered that you were planning to stay at Disney's Beach Club Villas Resort during your vacation and as a guest staying at a Disney Resort you will be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours. We always add the Park Hopper Option to our Magic Your Way Base Tickets and find that we are able to experience many of our favorite attractions during Morning Extra Magic Hours and then "park hop" around midday when that park becomes more crowded. The main parks that we almost always visit during Morning Extra Magic Hours are Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. We do sometimes attend a park offering Evening Extra Magic Hours as well. I saw that you are arriving on March 1, 2013. I would love to get a little more information regarding which parks you are hoping to visit and if you will have the Park Hopper Option on your Magic Your Way Base Ticket in order to better assist you with your itinerary and making dining recommendations. I do plan my Advanced Dining Reservations around which parks I will be visiting allowing us to maximize our time in the parks. I hope you have a Magical day, Danielle!
    Happy Planning,
