    We are arriving late Sun and our 1st day will be Mon Memorial Day. Plan AK for Wed and DHS for Fri (SWW). Ideas for Mon are Typhoon Lagoon/Epcot, MK, or another DHS. 4-day passes, older kids, tight budget. Suggestions?

    Hi Lisa,

    Since you have four Magic Your Way ticket days to visit the parks at Walt Disney World, I would avoid the most crowded day (Monday) and stick with Typhoon Lagoon that day, followed by an evening at Downtown Disney. If you use a park ticket day to do Epcot in the late afternoon/evening, you won't have time to see a lot at this large park and you'll have used a whole day's worth of theme park admission for less than half of a day of touring.

    My touring strategy would be:

    Monday - Typhoon Lagoon, followed by evening at Downtown Disney
    Tuesday - Animal Kingdom
    Wednesday - Magic Kingdom
    Thursday - Epcot
    Friday - Disney's Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekend

    Of if you prefer to do a park on Monday, Animal Kingdom won't be much more crowded than Tuesday. Then you could do your water park day on Tuesday.

    With only four days, you'll need to select your Must Do attractions and make sure to see those first. Epcot and the Magic Kingdom usually take two days each to see the majority of attractions, shows, and evening fireworks displays.

    For a tight budget, stick to counter-service meals and dine early to stay ahead of the crowds!

    Please feel free to let me know if I can help any further! Have fun!
