    Hi Doug.Could you suggest an itinerary for our family of 4,G7 B4, 1/16-1/23, staying FWC,only AM for 23rd,PM for 1/16, 7 day PH,MK is our fav, love star wars, pirates cruise near CR 1/22,Royal Table AM1/19, Akershus AM 1/21. How much park hopping?

    Ruth,

    OK, here is what I would do, if I were in your shoes. Since you have 8 days there, but a 7-day ticket, you have to either go to parks on the 16th or the 23rd. I prefer to save that park day for departure day. Your arrival day can be more about relaxation, and if travel is delayed you don't short your time. And a park on a departure day means you have less of a end-of-vacation let down. It is hard to mill around your resort for half a day, thinking about leaving, knowing the parks are so nearby!

    • January 16 - No park. Enjoy the pool, and plan a fun dinner.
    • January 17 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • January 18 - Hollywood Studios (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    • January 19 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Hollywood Studios (PM)
    • January 20 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • January 21 - Epcot (all day) (try BoardWalk!)
    • January 22 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Pirate Cruise (PM)
    • January 23 - Magic Kingdom (AM)
    As for park hopping, while it is great to be able to do it, remember that time changing parks is time OUT OF A PARK! Try to keep it to a minimum.

    Have a magical vacation!
