    Our traveling dates are March 12-17, 2012. My kids (4 and 7) and they are so excited!! I want to be able to see as much as possible at the 4 parks. Can someone help me with a schedule and times of shows to see?

    Hi there, Mayeli!

    You have picked a lovely time to come visit. The weather is warm and breezy, while the nights are still cool enough to (possibly) warrant a sweatshirt.

    You will definitely want to check out the calendars, available specific to each Park. You can start on the main Walt Disney World Parks homepage and navigate to each Park from there,

    There are two calendars per Park:

    1 The "10 days out calendar" allows you to view hours in all of the Parks for ten days, starting with any date you select. This calendar indicates which Parks have morning and evening Extra Magic Hours (EMH).

    2. Each Park has its own month-view calendar, on which you can see event times as well as operating hours, closure, event times, and EMH. Those calendars are found, again, on the official Disney site; you'll need to go to each Park-specific page and use the navigation bar on the left for the 'Calendar' section.When you are on your chosen day in the month view, just click on the "Park Hours" link to see the specific activities laid out for the day.

    That will give you an idea of showtimes and places so you can make the best use of your time.

    Please be aware that some of the calendars are not completely finalized until 180 days out. And all entertainment is, of course, subject to change without notice.

    As for what to see? I'd be happy to give you some more tips; please feel free to drop me a line and let me know some of your children's favorite characters or ride types. This way, I can help create a customized plan of action that will not only be suitable for your specific family, but will help you maximize the Magic.

    Have a wonderful time - and happy planning!

    See you later, celebrator,
