    Will be at WDW 9/15-9/21. I would like to take advantage of Magic hours if possible and plan ADR accordingly. Can you Please help plan our itinerary?

    Hi Randa,

    I'm happy to help plan your itinerary.  I see that you are a resort guest; however, I'm not sure what kind of tickets you have.  I'm going to assume you have not purchased the Park Hopper option.  Also, I'm not sure whether you prefer morning Extra Magic Hours or evening ones.  The other question I have for you is regarding your first and last days.  Are 9/15 and 9/21 travel days?  Will you have time to spend in the parks.  I'm going to assume so.  If any of this information is incorrect, please ask a follow up question, so that I (or one of my fellow moms) can help you plan the best vacation for your family.

    Assuming that you are only visiting one park per day. I'm giving you some of my favorite restaurant options that are either in or near each park:

    9/15 - Epcot: Biergarten, Garden Grill
    9/16 - Magic Kingdom: Kona Cafe (breakfast), 'Ohana (dinner)
    9/17 - Hollywood Studios: 50s Prime Time Cafe, Brown Derby
    9/18 - Epcot: Teppan Edo, Tutto Italia
    9/19 - Animal Kingdom: Tusker House, Flame Tree Barbecue (quick service)
    9/20 - Magic Kingdom: 1900 Park Fare, Crystal Palace
    9/21 - Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios

    This give you two days in Epcot and Magic Kingdom. Between Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios you can decide which park you want to spend more time in.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
