    Thanks Anna for help! You asked if I am night owl, or morning person, I am both! last time we were there we stayed at the parks til 1 am, and would get up early the next day and go again. Kids love going at night for all the lights. Yes, on park hopper

    Hi, Nikki!  Wow - you're like my super Disney hero mom!  I could never do it!  If I do a late night at the parks, I just want to chill at my resort the next day.

    Okay, so if you're good to burn the candle at both ends, I'd plan my days around doing an extra magic hour in the morning park, then at some point during the day, I'd head over to the park that had evening extra magic hours and get that bonus time in, too.  For meal planning purposes, you could plan your early meals for the park with the morning extra magic hours, and your evening meal at the park with evening extra magic hours. 

    You also have the option to spend the day in one theme park, then just head to one of the others for their evening fireworks show.  For example, on a day that you're in the Magic Kingdom, you might want to skip the Wishes fireworks show in favor of taking advantage of shorter lines for some of the attractions (which can happen during the fireworks and parades).  Then, later during your stay, you might head out of Animal Kingdom at closing and just go to the Magic Kingdom for Wishes.  That way, you have no pressure to race off to another attraction and miss the show!

    Have an absolutely wonderful time, and if you have other questions, come on back!
