    Thanks Doug! First day at the parks will be Mon. 6/10 for 6 days. Maybe 1/2 days at water parks, shorter day at Anim. King. and Epcot in P.M. for fireworks. Do you have other suggestions for which days are best at which parks and in what order?


    Glad to help!

    I agree that you could combine an Animal Kingdom day with a visit to a water park or Epcot. Here is what I would do;

    • June 10 - Magic Kingdom
    • June 11 - Water Park (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • June 12 - Hollywood Studios
    • June 13 - Water Park (AM) / Magic Kingdom (PM)
    • June 14 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • June 15 - Magic Kingdom
    Even though there are evening Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom on your first day, I would still go there. This will be one of your lighter crowd days while you are there, and I just think that you have to start off any Walt Disney World vacation with a day at the Magic Kingdom.

    If you are interested in visiting Downtown Disney you could do that on the evening of the 11th or 14th, instead of one of your two trips to Epcot.

    Write me back again with any follow-up questions, and we can dig deeper!

    Have a magical vacation!
