    Planning a trip to Disney Sunday October 14th-Friday October 19th staying at Port Orleans Riverside...can you give me an itinerary for the week. Want to visit Hollywood Studios, MK and Animal Kingdom. Travelling with 3 boys - 6, 4 and 3.

    Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel, Nancy! I love it that you are already planning your October trip to Walt Disney World! I am also a planner and a mom of three young boys!Unfortunately, Disney has not announced the October Park Hours at this time so it is a little difficult to tell you which days to visit the three parks you mentioned.As a Disney Resort guest, I would recommend taking advantage of Morning Extra Magic Hours especially with young children.We find that we are able to experience many of our favorite attractions in that "extra hour" that is only available to guests staying at a Disney Resort. I would plan on enjoying Disney's Port Orleans Riverside on your arrival day, enjoying a table-service meal at one of the Disney Resorts, and then getting to bed early so that your boys are all rested up for their first park day. Based on September Park Hours, I would recommend visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios (Evening Extra Magic Hours) or Disney's Animal Kingdom (Morning Extra Magic Hours) on Monday and then alternating parks on Tuesday.You may also want to check if Fantasmic! will be showing both of these days at Disney's Hollywood Studios and plan accordingly as this is a "must see" for my family! I would enjoy a relaxing day at your Disney resort with a visit to Downtown Disney on Wednesday.My boys could play for hours at the Lego Imagination Center and love dining at T-REX Café, which features life-size animatronic animals in a Prehistoric Setting. Last but certainly not least, visit Magic Kingdom on Thursday, when Morning Extra Magic Hours are typically available to Resort guests. Watching Wishes Nighttime Spectacular in the Magic Kingdom is always such a Magical Way to end a Walt DIsney World Vacation! Please feel free to write me back in April when October Park Hours should be released and I can give you a more customized itinerary. Sending pixie-dusted wishes your way that your boys create "minnie magical memories" on your Walt Disney World Vacation!
    Happy Planning,
