    We're planning a WDW trip 10/6-10/15/11. Getting park hoppers to all of the parks. Trying to plan our itinerary. What are some of the best times dates for the parks + Bliz Bch. We are doing Mickey's Not So Scary on Oct. 10. Thank you for your help! Lori

    Hi Lori!
    Crowd flow is a bit unpredictable, but generally speaking, the best days to hit a particular park are:

    Magic Kingdom...Mondays and Thursdays
    EPCOT...Sundays and Wednesdays
    Disney's Hollywood Studios...Tuesdays
    Animal Kingdom...Fridays

    I do not recommend any park that is having MORNING Extra Magic Hours as the increased crowds decrease any advantage you may have to get in a bunch of attractions. I always go to a NON-Extra Magic Hour park in the morning. Evening Extra Magic Hours are a different story as crowd flow is a bit more manageable.
    With regards to Blizzard Beach, we usually choose a day in the middle of our trip to go to a water park. This allows us to sleeep in on that day, and allows us to relax after several days of park touring while getting us ready to do some more park touring the next day.
    By the way, if you have never done it, you are going to LOVE MNSSHP. It is a great time.
    I hope this helps and if you have more specific questions, please just come on back. Have a Magical trip!! :)
