    Hi Doug! Our 1st DW trip is 12/11-12/20 myself, DH, DS9 and DD4. I'm totally overwhelmed w/scheduling ADR's and parks w/out the PH and trying to plan for lower crowds, but still see special things like Fantasmic, Electrical Parade, etc. Can you recommend?

    Charles,

    Well we are going to get rid of that overwhelmed feeling!

    First suggestion: Ignore the Evening Extra Magic Hours. I have daughters aged 3 and 5, and while I can keep them up every now and then later into the evening, to do it every night on a Disney vacation is a bad idea. It exhausts them, and while it may make for a fun night, it makes for an awful next day. So chase the morning ones, and don't worry about park hopping.

    Second suggestion: Here is where I would go;

    • December 11 - Arrival Day
    • December 12 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 13 - Animal Kingdom
    • December 14 - Epcot
    • December 15 - Hollywood Studios (Fantasmic night)
    • December 16 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 17 - Epcot
    • December 18 - Hollywood Studios
    • December 19 - Magic Kingdom
    • December 20 -  Departure Day

    Third suggestion: Write me back with more questions, and we can work on helping you get more comfortable with your upcoming vacation!

    Have a magical vacation!
