    Hi Carrie!

    You can find park hours, show times, and other pertinent park information on the park calendars located at, or just click on my links below.  You'll need to change the month view (it's on the right) on each calendar to September, and then click on a date for a detailed view.

    Magic Kingdom


    Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Disney's Animal Kingdom

    We always start our vacations at Magic Kingdom.  For us, we're not really at Walt Disney World until we see "The Castle"--so we always make it our first stop.  Your touring plan will also depend on your existing dining reservations, and whether you have park hoppers or not.

    Do not miss Wishes, IllumiNations, or Fantasmic!   They are all wonderful shows and well worth your time.  If you are planning on utilizing Extra Magic Hours, make sure you get there early so you can get the most out of your time.  Don't forget the sunscreen or the rain gear!

    Have a magical vacation!
