    We will be traveling to WDW 2/2 thru 2/8 and have 6 day park hopper. We are staying at AOA Cars Suite. What itinerary suggestions do you have for two boys ages 2.5 and 5? Also need dining suggestions for the arrival day. Flight arrives at 1:21PM. Thx!

    Your boys are going to absolutely fall in love with that Cars suite at Disney's beautiful new Art of Animation Resort, Coretta!  Here is what I would suggest for an itinerary:

    2/2 - Arrival Day
    Animal Kingdom makes a great half-day park.  Head there after you've checked in and gotten settled.  While you're there, be sure to check out The Boneyard because your boys are at just the right age to enjoy it.  For dinner, try to get a reservation at Chef Mickey's or Garden Grill.

    2/3 - Hollywood Studios/Epcot
    Head to Hollywood Studios early for a spin on Toy Story Mania.  Also check out Disney Junior - Live on Stage!  After a short afternoon respite, head to Epcot for more attractions and dinner.

    2/4 - Downtown Disney
    Sleep in to rest up.  Spend the day exploring your resort and maybe head to Downtown Disney for a game of bowling or just some light shopping. 

    2/5 - Magic Kingdom
    This is the day you've all been waiting for.  Head to Magic Kingdom early (about forty-five minutes before the park opens) and stay there from sun up to sun down.

    2/6 - Magic Kingdom
    Because you just won't be able to get enough--especially of New Fantasyland! 

    2/7 - Epcot
    Epcot has tons of hidden gems for little ones.  Spend some time in Future World and then head to World Showcase for the Kidcot fun stops and dinner.

    2/8 - Open
    Leave your itinerary open to revisit the park you didn't get enough of.

    Don't hesitate to write me back with follow-up questions if I can be of further assistance!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
