    Staying at CBR June 7-14th. I'll be pushing my 2 grdaughters in a double stroller and Grandpa will be on a motorized scooter due to a spine disorder. Because of this we'd like to avoid big crowds when possible. Which parks should we avoid on which days?

    As a family, we are devoted to following the Extra Magic Hours (EMH) in the morning and then we transfer parks later in the morning since that park with the extra hours tends become very crowded.  We also avoid EMH that are offered in the evening since they, too, are often crowded.  

    However, I think park hopping may be more complicated than you'd like since it sounds like your hands will be full.  Because of this, I'd encourage you to visit parks on non-EMH days.  By clicking here, you'll be able to see the park hours during your visit and the EMH of those days.  For example, on June 9, 2009, the Magic Kingdom opens an hour early and Epcot stays open late for park guests.  On this day, I'd visit either Disney's Hollywood Studios or the Animal Kingdom.  Then, I'd continue to follow that basic plan for the other days of your trip.  I think this will be the best plan to help you avoid the crowds.  I should also share with you that the weekend of June 12 - 14, 2009, Disney's Hollywood Studios will be hosting Star Wars weekend which will make a portion of the park more crowded.  

    Have a magical time; celebrating with your granddaughters will be so wonderful for all of you!
