    How exciting you will be visiting Walt DIsney World in just a few weeks, Arlie! Since you are planning an extended vacation with several park days, I would highly recommend planning a resort day (non-park day) in the middle of your vacation to sleep in and enjoy your resort. I have found with little ones that three consecutive park days can be very tiring. However, you could plan to visit a water park on your resort day. I would definitely plan to visit the park in which you are dining, in order to maximize your time in that park and decrease your amount of travel time I would recommend visiting Magic Kingdom Park on your first park day. I personally believe Magic Kingdom Park has the most attractions geared towards little ones. I would then visit Disney's Hollywood Studios on Saturday, June 29th since you will be able to take advantage of Morning Extra Magic Hours. On Sunday, I would visit either Disney's Typhoon Lagoon or Disney's Blizzard Beach.You may consider visiting Epcot following your breakfast at Chef Mickey's and can travel there easily via the monorail. On Tuesday, you may want to split your time between Disney's Hollywood Studios and either Magic Kingdom Park or Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. On Wednesday, you will probably be ready for a resort day or more water park fun.You may want to spend your day on Thursday revisiting a park that the grandchildren really enjoyed or experiencing attractions that you missed on your first visit. Based on your Advanced Dining Reservation, I would spend Friday at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. When visiting the theme parks, be sure to arrive at park opening in order to experience as many attractions as possible when the parks are traditionally less crowded. I would then recommend going back to your resort for a midday break and then reenter the parks in the early evening. Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip!
    Happy Planning,
