    We are staying at Cabins at FW 2/10/12-2/14/12 with 4.5 year old son (his 1st visit). Please provide 3 day park hopper itinerary with my son in mind - I'm overwhelmed with the details and would like to be more prepared! We are hoping to see all 4 parks.

    Hi Jennifer! Here is what I would recommend for each day:

    Friday, Feb. 10
    On Friday evening, Epcot has Extra Magic Hours, where the park will be open an extra 3 hours for resort guests (through midnight). I would encourage you to go to Epcot upon your arrival to the Walt Disney World Resort and stay as late as you could. I would encourage you to grab a spot around the World Showcase Lagoon to view Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.

    Saturday, Feb. 11
    On Saturday, Disney's Hollywood Studios has Morning Extra Magic Hours starting at 8:00am.  I would stay at Disney's Hollywood Studios until approximately lunch time and then head back to your cabin for some rest time (and maybe even a nap!)  I would return back into the parks around 4:00pm and I would recommend going to the Magic Kingdom to view the Main Street Electrical Light Parade and Wishes Fireworks that evening.

    Sunday, Feb. 12
    On Sunday, I would recommend going to Epcot which opens at 9:00am. This would be a great time to do the Epcot Character Connection for some great character meet and greet opportunities. I would follow the same philosophy of leaving around lunch and then heading back into a park around 4:00pm. I would recommend the Magic Kingdom again so that you can benefit from Evening Extra Magic Hours until midnight.

    Monday, Feb. 13
    On Monday, Disney's Animal Kingdom has Morning Extra Magic Hours starting at 8:00am. This would be a great opportunity to see a lot of the animals in the morning. I would leave around lunch, go back and rest, and head to Disney's Hollywood Studios to see Fantasmic and to benefit from the Evening Extra Magic Hours until 10:00pm.

    This would allow you to hit all four parks and to be able to pick a park to go to on Tuesday, Feb. 14 before you leave. I hope this sounds like a great plan to you!

    Have a magical trip!
