    Kimberly--do you mind reviewing my plans? You gave such a good ans to another! 5/5--MK, 5/6--AK, 5/7--MK then DS, 5/8--MK, 5/9--EP, & 5/10--DS. Naps midday; had to make ADRs w/o park sched so hitting some EMHs. Have PH--kids are 2 & 4.

    I absolutely love to plan itineraries!

    5/5 Not the Magic Kingdom's least crowded day but you’ll be okay. Park hop to Hollywood Studios in the evening or start your day at the Animal Kingdom.

    5/6 Animal Kingdom will be okay for the morning. There’s not a lot of attractions open during evening Extra Magic Hours for small children. If possible, park hop to the MK.

    5/7 If you are going to do MK on an EMH morning be at the gates prior to opening time. As each hour goes by, the park will get more crowded. My preference would be to start at Epcot. I would only go to Hollywood Studios in the evening if your family plans on seeing Fantasmic.

    5/8 Magic Kingdom

    5/9 Animal Kingdom would be my first choice. For Epcot, arrive early due to the influx of guests arriving for the Flower and Garden Festival.

    5/10 Epcot or Animal Kingdom would be my first pick. Just be at the Hollywood Studios early due to the EMH morning. Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day!

    Great planning with the mid-day naps. I like to remind families that the resort experience is a big part of a WDW vacation and also a big expense too. So, take time to enjoy it.

    One way to adjust your schedule to a more ideal plan is to park hop. Be careful when park hopping. Do not head to a park that closes early such as the Animal Kingdom if you are heading out of your hotel at 4:00 p.m.

    So many choices for precious vacation time! I don’t always get it right. When I find our family at a park that is inundated with people, we get a few things done and then hop to another park. I’d rather seek the less crowded alternative!
