    Our stay will be 02/28 - 03/06. We are staying at Pop Century and our package includes Hopper tickets + water parks and the Disney Dining Plan. What is my next planning step... figuring out which parks to visit on which days or booking the restaurants?

    Hi Michelle!

    Once I have chosen my vacation dates and booked my package my next step is to study the park hours and choose where we'll be on each day. I find that it's usually best to have this set up so that you can try and book your ADRs in the parks you'll be at each day or at a resort close by. Once you arrive, you'll be glad that you don't have to spend a lot of time traveling in between destinations to get to your meals on time.

    For example, on a day that we're spending at the Magic Kingdom I'll try to book meals within the park or at one of the monorail resorts for easy transportation. It just wastes less precious vacation time and is a lot less stressful!

    Since you have park hopper tickets you can be flexible with your meal choices. Many times we'll spend the morning in a park, go back to our resort for a break and time in the pool and then go to Epcot for dinner since there are so many great dining choices there.

    I hope this helps! You're at the stage of planning that I think is the most fun - enjoy!
