    Our 1st trip to WDW, we are staying July 8th -July 13th at pop century. We have breakfest in the castle on the 9th and dinner at chef Mickey's on the 10th and four day passes. I have a 8 yr old girl, 2 boys(6, 2). I need help with planning our days.

    Hi Michel,

    Thanks for writing.  First trips are extra magical.  How exciting that yours is around the corner.  I'm assuming you don't have park hoppers, and therefore, will be visiting one park per day. With four day passes, I would get the most of my money by using them on your full days rather than on departure or arrival days, when you can enjoy the pool at your resort, mini-golf or Downtown Disney.  Taking your Chef Mickey's reservation into consideration (this is my absolute favorite character meal by the way!) I would suggest Hollywood Studios on the 9th, Magic Kingdom on the 10th (you can get to and from the park to your dinner via the monorail or a lovely walkway to the Contemporary Resort), Epcot on the 11th and Animal Kingdom on the 12th. You will be able to leave and re-enter the same park as many times as you like in a give day, so if you want to return to Pop Century for lunch, to swim, rest, etc., you are welcome to do so as long as you return to the same park you started your day at.

    Happy planning!

    Happy planning!
