    Amy from MI Asked

    We will be at Disneyworld Oct 13-20. Staying at the AOA. We want to do both waterparks. How should we work that into or 7N 8D pass. Arrival and Departure days are only half days.

    Hi Amy!  You are certainly going to plan your visit to the max. My only caution to you is not to completely book every minute and forget to relax and have a good time too. I know it is hard to come to this great vacation destination and not want to do it all but sometimes you must leave some for the next visit or you will find you need a vacation from your vacation!

    Luckily you have planned a great lengthy stay so getting two water parks in shouldn't be difficult.  I suggest at least one day in each park then two days for each of the water parks. You will likely only spend a half day in each or 3/4 of a day leaving that extra time for one of the parks that might be staying open late.  You can book park dining on that day as well.  I suggest you keep the arrival and departure days to a minimum with perhaps just some dining reservations close to your resort.  Downtown Disney is always a great place to start and end a vacation with the many restaurants, shops, shows, and other entertainment such as a movie or Disney Quest.

    The weather will weigh on which days are best for the water parks but when making dining reservations you sometimes just have to go with a plan.  Do a couple days of parks then schedule a water day then another couple days of parks then your last water day. That will give you a nice break up of activities.

    Let me know what else I can do to help you with your planning!
