    Planning a 2015 Fall trip. My son & wife can only join for 4 days, incl a weekend. Suggestions on how you would break it up? Weekend first and Mon & Tues? or arrive on Thur and finish with the weekend? Want them to get the most out of their 4 days

    Hello Sharon,

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. It's great to hear that you are starting your planning process early and taking everyone's schedules into account in order to get the most magic out of your trip. While every person plans differently based on their experience, I would suggest planning a Saturday to Tuesday trip. My reasoning for this is that many guests travel in and out on Sundays or Mondays, so you might find that those days are less crowded. I can't guarantee that this would always be the case, but it is often a trend. When planning, you might also want to consider some of the events that occur in the fall. For example, the special events during the International Food and Wine Festival might only happen on certain days and if you are interested in specific ones, this could affect your schedule. Also, if you are considering Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, these parties occur on a limited number of dates rather than daily. So, this, too, could cause you to consider one schedule over another.

    I hope you have a wonderful time planning and please feel free to stop back by for more questions during your planning process. We're here to help.
