    You replied to my quest, here is more info Have 3kids 4,9,10, staying at the shade of green resort (qualifies for EMH). No dinner reservations yet.Planned to go AK (17th), MK (18th), DH (19th), & Epcot (20th)? going to MK after AK for EMH on 17th?

    Karla, thank you so much for writing back. Are the kids in your house so absolutely excited about two major upcoming events- Christmas AND Walt Disney World- that they can hardly sit still long enough to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas?

    Your itinerary is well planned and provides a nice balance of time at all the parks. Do take advantage of your Park Hoppers and visit the Magic Kingdom on 12.17. After enjoying a day of safaris and expeditions in Disney's Animal Kingdom, head back to your resort for some rest and relaxation. Once your are refreshed, go to the Magic Kingdom for more fun. If your children can handle the late hours, take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours that evening. Typically the crowds begin to thin after the fireworks and the final parade so if your kids can hang till the midnight hour you should be rewarded with shorter lines.

    If you do want to experience a character meal or table-service restaurant, book your reservations now. The holidays are a popular time to visit WDW and spots go quickly. Call 407.939.3463 or click on Dining Reservations.

    Wishing your family a wonder, magical visit to see Mickey!
