    Hi MP! Arriving Mon. 12/6, leaving Sat. 12/8, 5-day tickets (no park hopper). We wish to do MK 2 days, other parks 1 day. What would your recommended itenerary be (best days for each park)? Want Wishes, Fantasmic & Illum., if it would work out. thanks

    Hi Shelley! A fellow Carolina girl!

    There are two ways to build a itinerary that works best for your family. One is to base it on the experiences that your family "must see". Build a Top 5 "Must See" list from each family member and build your schedule based on those experiences.

    If, for example, your kids really want to see the new Fantasyland, ride It's a Small World, see Wishes and PhilharMagic, I'd highly recommend visiting Magic Kingdom on your first day, concentrate your day in Fantasyland, and then visit Magic  Kingdom again on the third day and hit up the remainder of the park. Using this method, I would visit Magic Kingdom on day 1, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Magic Kingdom and on the final day, a "best of" or Animal Kingdom.

    The other solution is to build your itinerary around the crowd levels at the parks. I suggest you visit touringplans dot com, as they have experts who rate the predicted crowd levels for each day, tell you which parks to visit and avoid and the special attractions for that day. You can build your schedule around that.

    Please let me know if I can help you with anything else!
