    Hey Santos,

    I have to admit, your schedule looks like a pro planned it. Here are a few suggestions to look at before you put your itinerary in stone. 

    Depending on what time you arrive on 9/3, you may want to go to a park that will have Extra Magic Hours that night just to maximize your time a little more. The Water Parks usually close around 6pm, so if you have Park Hopper, you may want to catch one of the nighttime Fireworks displays in the evening on 9/6 or take a trip to Downtown Disney for a little video game time at DisneyQuest-Indoor interactive amusement center. Check to see if Animal Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours (which are usually in the morning) on the day you are going so you can get in a little earlier and finish your day there sooner. In my opinion, you do not have to devote a full day to Animal Kingdom. My last suggestion is to remember that if you are utilizing Magical Express, the bus will pick you up about 3 hours prior to your flight. So, factor that you will not have that time to finish playing. Otherwise, it seems as if you are well on your way to a magical vacation!
