    Hello. We are 1st time visitors to Disney on Aug7-14. Family of 4 with dd turning 4 on Aug 9th.We do have breakfast planned for Aug 11 at chef Mickey. We also have park hopper passes. Please help plan our days. Thanks!!! The panel is great!!!


    Glad to help!

    My first rule is that having a park hopper doesn't mean you HAVE to visit more than 1 park a day. Consider it an insurance policy in case you feel like changing gears in the middle of a day! Below I list only one park in each day, so consider them good starting points, and know that moving from one to the other is a great option you get to enjoy!

    I am not sure if you have time to visit anything on your arrival or departure days, so will assume not. That being said, here is what I would do;

    • August 7¬†- Have a fun dinner in the Magic Kingdom area and watch Wishes from outside the park (I would do dinner at Spirit of Aloha or 'Ohana and watch show from Polynesian beach!)
    • August 8 - Magic Kingdom
    • August 9 - Animal Kingdom
    • August¬†10 - Epcot
    • August 11 - Magic Kingdom
    • August 12 - Hollywood Studios
    • August 13 - Epcot (watch IllumiNations to end your trip!)

    I am glad to field any follow-up questions you may have! Just go to my bio page to ask me directly!

    Have a magical vacation!
