    Thanks, we will be in Disney on Aug 13th- Aug 18th can you give me tips on creating an itinerary. We are staying at the wilderness lodge is this a good location.

    Hi Roseana,

    You will just love staying at Wilderness Lodge.  My family stayed there this past week and just fell in love with it!  You will feel like you are in Yellowstone National Park with the beautiful architecture and geysers all around.  The theming and location is fantastic.  When planning an itinerary, I usually check the Park Hours website first specifically looking at Extra Magic Hours.   On August 13th, Hollywood Studios  opens at 9:00 am with Extra Magic Hours from 9:00 pm - 12:00 am.  I would plan on my day there and schedule Advanced Dining Reservations accordingly.   On August 14th, Epcot is open until Midnight as well with Extra Magic Hours.  The water parks have Extra Magic Hours only in the morning starting at 8:00 am.  I would highly recommend being on the bus by 7:15 am to get there at park open.  Not only will you have the whole park to yourself but you can also pick out whatever spot you would like to call home for the day. Typhoon Lagoon is open early on August 15 and 18th and Blizzard Beach on August 14 and 16th.  Once I have what days I will be going to each park for the day, I then plan dining and any other activities that we might want to do.  I know your vacation will be magical, Roseana!
