    I was wondering if you could plan my trip? We will be there 8/15-21 - staying on-site, have park hopper & water park. I have 2 austic boys(13 &15-menatlly 1st grade) so avoiding crowds is top thing - I do have breakfast on Mon @ chef Mic & Wed


    I am flattered that you would ask me to help you plan!

    First, know that your boys DESERVE some time at Walt Disney World! This is where they get to be like all the other boys!

    So here is where I would go to keep the crowds low;

    • August 15 – Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • August 16 – Chef Mickey’s / Water Park (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • August 17 – Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • August 18 – Water Park (AM) / Magic Kingdom (PM)
    • August 19 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Downtown Disney or resort time
    • August 20 – Epcot (all day)
    • August 21 – open Park Day
    I really think you leave the 21st open to letting your boys tell you what they most want. Let them tell you what will ‘close out’ the vacation on a high note for them!

    Oh, and ask Disney for a Guest Assistance Card that will help you navigate the parks with more ease for your boys.

    And for you, make sure you use rider swap to have some fun for you as well!

    Have a magical vacation!
