    We are visiting in Aug. 17-22 with dining res on the 18th 1900 10:20am and 50's prime time cafe 9:05pm. The 19th akershus 10:55am and CP 9:15pm. The 20th Planet Hollywood 2:45pm and the 21st 1900 6:15pm. Are these good? and could you help map out the days?

    Hi Lindsey,

    Your dining reservations look great!  You've picked a variety of fun restaurants.  I've arranged a schedule for you, but I'm not sure where you are staying or how many children you have (if any) that need to take naps.  Even if everyone in your party is past the napping age, August is very hot, and I recommend going back to your hotel for a couple of hours each day to rest, swim, or just cool off.

    August 18 - If you are all raring to go, rise early and take advantage of the extra magic hours at the Magic Kingdom.  Plan leaving to catch the monorail or ferry to the Grand Floridian by 9:15 to make sure you get to 1900 Park Fare in time for your reservation.  From there, catch the bus to Hollywood Studios, and spend the rest of the day there.

    August 19 - Spend the morning at Epcot.  Head to your resort for a rest in the afternoon.  Then spend the evening at Magic Kingdom.

    August 20 - Spend the day at Animal Kingdom.  You'll want to visit Kilimanjaro Safari first thing since the animals are more likely to be active before the day heats up.  Around 1:00, take the bus to Saratoga Springs.  From there, you'll be able to walk or take a ferry to Downtown Disney for your lunch at Planet Hollywood.  After lunch, spend some time exploring the shops downtown.  If you're tired, head back to your resort; otherwise, take a bus to the Beach Club and walk over to Epcot from there.  Epcot has extra evening hours, so you'll be able to enjoy illuminations and then catch a couple of attractions.

    August 21 - Spend the day at Hollywood Studios.  After a rest at your resort, head over to 1900 Park Fare for dinner.  Magic Kingdom has extra magic hours that evening, so you can stay as late as 1:00 a.m.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
