    Thanks Doug. I will be in the area Dec. 23-January 1. I know that we will do Magic Kingdom on Dec. 31 because we are having dinner at Be Our Guest and watching fireworks there. What other parks should I go to on which days? I have a hopper.


    Thanks for writing me back! Here is where I would suggest you go, based on what you have said here and in your previous question, including that you have a 7-day Park Hopper;

    • December 23 - Arrival Day
    • December 24 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • December 25 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • December 26 - Epcot (all day)
    • December 27 - Animal Kingdom (am and afternoon) / Magic Kingdom (pm)
    • December 28 - Downtown Disney or other non-park activities
    • December 29 - Hollywood Studios (am) / Magic Kingdom (pm)
    • December 30 - Magic Kingdom (am) / Epcot (pm)
    • December 31 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • January 1 - Departure Day

    Remember that even though you have dinner reservations at the Magic Kingdom on the 31st, if you were to try to enter the park after it has reached full capacity (if that happens) they still won't let you in. So make sure you go no later than early afternoon to the park that day.

    Another pointer is that many people want to be at the Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day, even with the larger crowds. I get that. If you want to do that, you could still swap out the day at Hollywood Studios with a different Magic Kingdom one. Your call.

    Write me back if you have more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
