    Hello panel!! Going to WDW from late 9/17 to 9/23/13 want to visit the 4 parks, no hopper, no water option. We have ADR for Chef Mickey 9/18 at 7:45 p.m., Akershus 9/20 at 1:35 p.m. I am wondering how to plan which park on which day to avoid crouds.

    Hi Ninonska! The good news is that you're visiting during a period of historically low attendance levels in the parks, so you shouldn't have to deal with big crowds. If you arrive at the parks when they open in the morning, you'll be able to experience lots of attractions with little to no wait time.

    Since you have a mid-day Akershus reservation on September 20 and you don't have the Park Hopper option on your tickets, that will be the day you visit Epcot. Chef Mickey's is located outside of the parks, but it's very convenient to the Magic Kingdom, so I recommend that you visit that park on September 18 so you won't have to spend a lot of time traveling from a park to your dinner reservation.

    I like to consult the Crowd Calendar on the unofficial website and that site is predicting crowd levels of only 1 out of 10 during your vacation, so you really could visit any park on any day without major crowds. Lowest crowds are expected in Epcot on September 20-23 and in Hollywood Studios on September 17, 19, and 22. Recommended days to visit Animal Kingdom are Sept. 19 and 23.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
