    Trip is 2/3-2/10 - 6 full park days. Reservations for Pirates League (4 and 5 yr old boys), Hollywood & Vine, Chef Mickey. Hoping crowds will be low so we don't have to plan ahead as to what park when (flexible=low stress!) Am I on the right track?

    Hey there Sarah!  Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  I think you are off to a great start with your vacation planning!  According to the independent website allears.net, early February is considered "lowest attendance" so hopefully the crowd levels will be minimal during your trip. As a mom of four, I personally like to plan our itinerary in advance while making sure our schedule is flexible. By creating an itinerary during my planning process, I can book Advanced Dining Reservations for a specific park location allowing us to travel less and maximize our time more efficiently. With that being said, we are always flexible in the fact that we can arrive at the parks when we want to, go back to our Disney Resort for a midday break or nap if the kids appear it is needed, and choose attractions to experience once we are in the park. Since you will have "six full park days", I definitely think you could go ahead and plan a day at Magic Kingdom Park when visiting The Pirate's League and then Disney's Hollywood Studios on the day you dine at Hollywood & Vine. You may want to keep the days at the end of your vacation more open so that you have the freedom to revisit a specific park. We also like to plan a non-park day in the middle of our vacation to sleep in, enjoy our Disney Resort, and enjoy many of the recreational activities outside of the theme parks. I hope this information helps!  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to write me back. Best wishes for a Magical "stress free" trip, Sarah!
    Happy Planning,
