    Thanks for the dining info, now for schedule question. I have a 2(G) and 4(B) year old. What are your thoughts on parks each day? 5 day trip July 19-24. AAA ST scheduled at Epcot Mon., and parade viewing at MK Wed. Is the storytime worth going to?

    Hi again, Mariann! I love finding out more about your's so exciting! Yet, I'm going to have to make a few assumptions since I don't know what your travel arrangements require of your first and last days of vacation, and I'm not certain of when your ADRs are. In addition, I am going to assume that you are staying at a Disney resort and that you have park hopper tickets.

    For Monday, you've made plans to be at Epcot. I've never attended the AAA storytime  -- so unfortunately, I can't advise you. Yet, I would expect it would be a great beginning for your kids. To avoid overload, I would stay for the duration of your day and only come and go if your resort is nearby.

    For Tuesday, there are Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom from 8-9 a.m., and it would be best if you could be at the gates by 7:30 a.m. The park is at its lowest capacity earliest in the morning. If you could get your family to walk straight down Main Street and through the Castle to be first in line for the Fantasyland attractions, it will be an effort worth making.

    For Wednesday, you have plans to be in the MK, but you could start your day at early EMHs at Animal Kingdom and then park hop over to the MK for the parade and afterward.

    On Thursday, I would suggest a "break" day at the pool or sleeping in to catch up on your rest, and then enjoy a park in the evening. Then, on Friday, you can visit Hollywood Studios for early EMHs and use the rest of your time at a park where you'd like to finish. For Saturday, I'm assuming it's a travel day, and you don't have park tickets.

    Of course, I ran out of room trying to tell you "everything," but you know I'd be happy to help more should you need it. I can give you some suggestions for attractions for your little ones. Have a wonderful day and a most magical vacation!
