    Will be at WDW 7/15-7/24. What is the best order to visit the parks. We'll have a 8 day park hopper. Would like to take advantage of ADR's so trying to plan the parks around the ADR's. Also, your suggest. on dining with 4 girls- 10, 8, 4 & 2. Thank


    Let's start with what parks on what days. First park, in my opinion, should be the Magic Kingdom! After that you can pick as you go, but here are some suggestions;

    • As you will be there during a busier time of the year, avoid the parks with morning extra magic hours, as they will be particularly crowded.
    • Visit all four parks in your first five days, with a repeat visit to the Magic Kingdom somewhere in there. For days 6-8, have morning parks picked through the lunch hour, but leave the afternoons free to go to parks that your girls choose.
    • Make the Magic Kingdom or Epcot your final day's evening stop. Let the fireworks be the conclusion to a great vacation!

    As to Advanced Dining Reservations, you have a lot of choices. With park hoppers, try the great international cuisines of the Epcot World Showcase. Some suggestions include Biergarten (fun for all ages), Akershus (great princess experience), and Rose and Crown (great outdoor seating). 

    Write me back with more info on where you are staying and what you like to eat, and I will give you more suggestions for the other parks, and resorts!

    Have a magical vacation!
