    our stay is 14-17 June. We have the dinner plan for all 4 of us. We are planning to purchase the military ticket park hoppers for 4 days upon arrival. I think they have to verify ID. Also, what about the water parks? Think that is worth investing in?

    Welcome back, Tanja!

    Thanks for the added information.  Based on your tickets and the fact that you will be staying as a guest at a Disney resort, here is my suggested plan for your family:

    June 14:  Head to the Magic Kingdom on your first day.  It's where the magic began forty years ago at Walt Disney World.  Consider making reservations for your daughter at the Bibbidi Bobbibi Boutique if she's the kind of gal who enjoys being a Disney princess for a day.  Similarly, your son could be transformed into a pirate at the Pirate's League if you think he'd enjoy that experience.  Reservations can be made by calling the Boutique at (407) WDW-STYLE and the Pirate's League at (407) WDW-CREW.  Plan on meeting Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater and don't miss Wishes Nighttime Spectacular.  It's the perfect way to end your day in the Magic Kingdom.

    June 15:  Arrive at Epcot at 8 am.  Head directly to Soarin' in the Land Pavilion.  Then enjoy the rest of Future World before heading off to explore the countries of World Showcase.  There are so many great cuisines to sample in World Showcase.   Don't miss Illuminations at the end of the day.

    June 16:  Disney's Hollywood Studios opens at 8 am for Disney resort guests.  Be there at opening time and head directly to Toy Story Midway Mania.  Take your kids on the amazing thrill rides and see the shows at this park.  Don't miss Fantasmic! at 9 pm.

    June 17:  Enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest as soon as Disney's Animal Kingdom opens.  Have a fun character brunch at Tusker House and see the gorgeous shows (Festival of the Lion King, Flights of Wonder, & Finding Nemo) before leaving this park.  If you have time, head back to the Magic Kingdom to cap off your vacation with a last few magical hours.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions!
