    Hi there, our family ( 2adults and 2 boys 11&12) are visiting your park for the first. We will be arriving Nov. 28 @ 9:30 am with a 7 day park pass. Is there an order in which we should visit the parks. No park hopper, but we need to book dining.

    Hi Allen!  It is great to know you are coming after a holiday week for your first visit as I think you will enjoy the lower crowds to get to know the parks.  The day you arrive will be a day when many guests will be departing so please understand that the room most likely will not be available until the 3pm time.  You can still keep your luggage at the resort and enjoy the resort amenities and recreation while you wait or you can take the bus to Downtown Disney for some great unique dining, shopping and Disney Quest. I never suggest guests head to parks until they are settled into their rooms as travel days are very stressful and it is better to have a good night sleep before heading off into the wonderful world of magical attractions and shows!

    Check out the park hours and choose your days in the parks using that as a guide as well as if they are having the special shows such as Fantasmic.  You just need to click on each day of your vacation when you see the park calendars and it will show what is happening in the parks on that specific date. Extra Magic Hours is one plus to go to a park as you can come and go from that same park all day. If they will be open late in the evening you have plenty of time to enjoy a swim or a nap during the busy hours of the day to return later for dinner and less crowds.

    To find the calendars please go to the Disney website, and get to each park's main page. You will see CALENDAR on the left side, click on that, set it to the month of your visit, then click on each day to see the entertainment schedule.

    Make your plan work for you.  Don't try to do it all in this visit. Make priorities and enjoy the days with the family as that is the most important part of a successful vacation!
