    hi moms panel! love u guys! my question is for doug i see u are really good at itinerarys its me and my 2 kids d11 and s5 staying at port orleans riverside 12/3-12/12 we have 10 park hopper with dinning plan. want to do mvmcp thank u


    Thanks for the question!

    Park schedules for December will not be posted for about another 4 to 5 months. When those come out it will be easier to pinpoint optimal days for each park.

    But here is an initial plan that could help you get started with ideas of how many days at each park, and some thoughts on what you might want to do.

    • December 3 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • December 4 - Animal Kingdom (am and afternoon) / Downtown Disney (pm)
    • December 5 - Magic Kingdom (am) / Epcot (pm)
    • December 6 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • December 7 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • December 8 - Epcot (all day)
    • December 9 - Hollywood Studios (am and afternoon) / BoardWalk (pm)
    • December 10 - Animal Kingdom (am) / Magic Kingdom (afternoon and evening)
    • December 11 - Hollywood Studios (am) / Epcot (pm)
    • December 12 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    Some general tips;
    • I really love starting and ending my vacation at the Magic Kingdom. I think that really sets the mood, and brings the fun to a fun conclusion.
    • When the Christmas Party schedule comes out, go for one that is on a weekday, for smaller crowds.
    • Avoid Epcot on weekend days, since you have that flexibility.
    • You can plan more evenings at Downtown Disney than the one I have here. That boatride from your resort makes it a great evening destination when you don't want to head back to the parks!
    I would love to work with you more on this plan. Let's plan on you sending me some questions over the next few months on dining ideas, and when the December calendars get posted in the July/August time frame we can nail down a final park schedule and dining plans!

    Have a magical vacation!
