    3rd trip is Jan 31-Feb 6. Approaching 180 day mark for dining res and want to have some kind of plan of where we are going to be in order to make res. Kids are 6&5. Wont tour day of depart. Suggestions on what park to go what day? Will have park hopper

    Hi Corie!

    I bet you're so excited to begin the official planning. The park hours are not quite released for your travel dates, but will be soon. I would keep an eye on this Walt Disney World park calendar link to determine hours. My general guideline when working with a 6-day hopper is to begin and end with Magic Kingdom ... especially with little Mouseketeers in tow!
    Here would be my rough outline:
    1/31: MK
    2/1: Epcot, DHS
    2/2: MK, Epcot
    2/3: Resort morning, AK in afternoon
    2/4: DHS, Epcot
    2/5: AK, MK
    2/6: departure day

    You'll see in my plan, MK, Epcot and DHS are all experienced in both the mornings and evenings. I like to book my FastPass+ options in the evenings, as the mornings will offer light crowds. You'll want to experience fireworks at Epcot and Magic Kingdom as well as Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Give yourselves an afternoon break for a quick nap so that the kids are energized to stay out later than usual. This is your third trip, so I know you understand all the magic in store! Write me again once the hours are released and I'll be happy to offer a tailored itinerary. 

    Thanks for visiting us, Corie, and I wish you a memorable Walt Disney World vacation.
