    Hi moms! Visiting May5-11.(Pos.12th) staying at CSR with hop/dinning have 3 girls ages 12,9,2. 2yrolds bday on 6th.We have a ADR Chef Mickeys on 5th at 11:30.(not avail on 6th)Trying to decide what parks, what days, what dinning.( 1more char din. maybe 2)

    Hi, Tonya!  In deciding which parks to do which days, consider whether or not you'd like to do the extra magic hours.  I like to do the morning extra magic hours, so we usually choose the park with the morning hours to spend our day.  Another way to choose is based on dining reservations.  If I have a dining reservation that is a must do for us, I usually go to the park where that restaurant is located and spend our day there.  That is determined by the availability of the reservation.

    You might also want to check out touringplans.com.  They generally give you an idea there of which parks will be the busiest on which days, based on extensive historical data.  That can also help shape your days at the parks.

    When doing Chef Mickey's we like to plan the Magic Kingdom for that day.  We can go to the park in the morning when it opens, then take the monorail to the Contemporary resort for our meal.  It's another quick walk or monorail trip back into the Magic Kingdom when we're done.

    I hope this helps you figure out which days are best for you!  If I can be of any further assistance, just let me know!
