    Our July 21-26 trip: Cinderella's RT Sun @ 10 am, Chef Mickey's Sat. night for little ones. Everyone's favorite channel is Disney Jr, so DHS is a must! We are going to MK on Sun, but what about other 4 days after? Best plan? Specific place we can't miss?


    I am glad you wrote back!

    Let's start with your park planning.

    • July 21 - Arrival day
    • July 22 - Magic Kingdom
    • July 23 - Epcot
    • July 24 - Hollywood Studios
    • July 25 - Magic Kingdom
    • July 26 - Animal Kingdom
    So I picked these days so you were not going to a park that had Extra Magic Hours. At this busier time of the year those will be the most crowded parks, so you may as well avoid that mess. And with the large group that you are traveling with you are not going to find navigating those crowds to be as easy as a single adult traveler might.

    I also have you going to the Animal Kingdom on the last day, in the belief it may not be a full day for you. While I like this park, you might find after the 25th is over that you still want to do more at the Magic Kingdom. If so, don't hesitate skipping the Animal Kingdom and return to the Magic Kingdom on the 26th. You can save that fourth park for a return trip!

    OK, so there are your initial plans. Let's move on next to dining. Send me some info about what you guys like/don't like!

    Have a magical vacation!
