    Hi. Have any suggestions on when to go to each park for the week of August 17-August 24 2011? going with 2 young sons under 4 yrs. old staying at polynesian. Plan on doing naps in afternoon and getting park hopper. Any other scheduling advice? Thanks!


    So the trip is right around the corner!

    Here is where I would go;

    • August 17 - Arrival Day
    • August 18 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • August 19 - Animal Kingdom (AM & afternoon) / Downtown Disney (PM)
    • August 20 - Hollywood Studios (AM) / BoardWalk (PM)
    • August 21 - Epcot (all day)
    • August 22 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • August 23 - Hollywood Studios (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • August 24 - Magic Kingdom (all day)

    I have you only using Extra Magic Hours selectively, as the time in which you are visiting the crowds will vary between moderate to slightly crowded. And with younger children like yours (same as mine, mostly), you probably can't take much advantage of evening Extra Magic Hours anyway.

    Great idea on the naps! A sure way to keep everyone happy.

    Have a magical vacation!
