    Tour con't: Let's nix AK on 29th. I am skipping this one for this trip. What would you do in place? BBB is in a.m. so that's perfect. Thank you again!


    OK, so we go with three parks. That is OK, as the Animal Kingdom will be there for your NEXT trip, right!?!?

    Here is the revised schedule;

    • December 26 - Arrival Day
    • December 27 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • December 28 - Downtown Disney (AM) / Magic Kingdom (PM)
    • December 29 - Epcot (all day)
    • December 30 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • December 31 - Departure Day
    What is great about this is that you can move to all-day schedules for the Magic Kingdom on the 27th, Epcot on the 29th, and you already had that for Hollywood Studios on the 30th. Why is this good? Moving parks at this uber-busy time of the year is something you should avoid. Because of the sheer crowd sizes it means the buses will be full, the lines to get in the parks will be longer, and in general you will be increasing your headache factor. Now you stay in the theme of the day ALL DAY, rather than changing.

    Another plus is it moves you away from some of the Extra Magic Hours I had you on in the previous recommendation. While I love this perk at slow times of the year, they are signs of the parks to avoid, if possible, during the busy times.

    Write me back if you have more follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
