    Hello, We are planning our first vacation to Disney this year Sept 14 -Sept 20.Could you give me some options on how to fit everything in. We have park hopper and water parks option to. Also if theirs anything special going on .. on those days, let me know

    Hi Krystal,

    I prefer to begin and end our vacations with Magic Kingdom. With Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, you'll find over 30 attractions to enjoy. It's difficult to describe the feeling you'll experience as you enter the gates ... the sights and sounds will transport you to another era, and I encourage you to plan at least 2 of your 7 days here.

    Although 2013 dates have not been released, I also suggest purchasing special tickets for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. The party is SPOOKTACULAR fun and offers (in my opinion) the very best parade of the year, Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is most enjoyable in the mornings, as animals are often more active in the earlier hours. If staying on Disney property, take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours offered throughout the week exclusive only to Disney Resort Hotel guests. 

    Your hopper will provide you so much flexibility and I encourage you to check out the site touringplans.com for specific itineraries.

    Once schedules are released approximately 6 months ahead, I'd suggest building your itinerary to fit the hours, considering Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    For example: 

    Day 1 Magic Kingdom
    Day 2 Epcot; Disney's Hollywood Studios; Fantasmic!
    Day 3 Disney's Animal Kingdom; Magic Kingdom; Wishes nighttime spectacular
    Day 4 Blizzard Beach; Downtown Disney; DisneyQuest
    Day 5 Disney's Hollywood Studios; Epcot; Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
    Day 6 Disney's Animal Kingdom; Epcot
    Day 7 Magic Kingdom

    Visit me again once hours are released.  I'd be happy to assist you with building an exact itinerary as well as offering the most popular Advanced Dining Reservations!
