Hi,

Nice plan. We have kids the same age as you. I put some comments about what worked for us.

Day 2 - MK all day. Ideally BOG or CRT for dinner

I would schedule CRT/BOG lunch. It is an expensive dinner to have while you are still getting used to the time change. The kids might be fading by 6pm on the first day.

Day 4 - AK all day. ADR Tusker House (Brunch dining package)

If FOP fastpasses are a priority then consider putting AK later on in the holiday. Use thedibb fastpass availablity checker.

https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/fas...ailability.php

Day 5 - HS (am), TL (pm). ADR Raglan Road

Same with Slinky Dog FPs. Put HS at 6/7 days into the holiday.

I also would do full days at TL and BB. I was like you only scheduled half days but we ended up there ALL day. Kids did not want to leave

Day 6 - MK all day, hopefully MNSSHP. ADR Ohana BFB

If you are doing MNSSHP and if you want to meet Jack or the 7 Dwarfs I wouldn't reserve a dinner. You can join the line for Jack at 4pm and Dwarfs around 5pm. It will save party time.

Day 7 - HS (am), BB (pm). ADR T-Rex

Again BB I would just pencil all day for that. Book your FP+ for HS at night. Maybe put T Rex for your last day.

Day 10 - Pool (am), AK (pm). ADR Storybook Dining

We found doing the pool at night was the best for our kids who burn easily.

Day 11 - Epcot all day, probably with pool break. ADR Bon Voyage & Akerhaus

A lot of people like pool breaks in the afternoon. We found with 2 kids we usually started late/left later or early/left early. Going back and forth to the hotel was hassle with kids.

Day 12 - TL (am), HS? (pm). ADR Hacienda San Angel

I would do maybe HS as that is where all the new rides are going to be.

Day 13 - MK all day. ADR BOG breakfast and CRT/BOG dinner

BOG breakfast I would put that earlier in holiday while you are getting up early and to get the advantage of riding 7DMT. I think by day 13 you will be worn out and getting up at 6am to get there by 8am might be a struggle.

I agree with much of PP.

I think you have some very long days in a single park including days 2, 4, 6, 13 and 14 if you dont take the possible break. Also days 3 and 11 if those ADRs are for dinner.

I would do TL and BB in the morning not the afternoon, get there for opening and do all the rides in the first hour or two. After that the queues get long so I would do the lazy river or wave pool. If we are doing a water park we would schedule some FPs from about 4 or 5pm.

Having been in August with kids a few times, I wouldn't do a whole day in a park for the first few days. It's so hot & humid and it can really drain you, especially the kids. Tired grumpy kids make for a stressful expensive holiday! The first few days are the worst, while you get used to the jetlag and the heat, mine usually hit a wall by day 3, so now we split our days (Kids are now 14 & 12) The first full day I would be more inclined to go to MK in the AM, have an afternoon break at the pool to refresh, and head out for dinner at DS in the evening, ease yourself into it rather than going full throttle.

I wouldn't do MK all day inc MNSSHP in the evening, it's so busy, I would have a lazy morning, pool or waterpark and then hit MK at 4pm till close so you can use your fastpasses before the party starts. If you book your first FP for 3.30-4.30 you can use all 3 before the cut off. I also wouldn't book an ADR on party night, have a QS meal as there is so much to do. Mayve book a TS lunch somewhere instead.

Agree with Claudette about the waterparks, you're more likely to ger storms in the afternoon in August, so I would get up early and go rather than going in the afternoon.

First day I would say youll be up mega early and probably ready for a rest in the afternoon
Our third full day was the worst for tiredness we went to Epcot lasted an hour or so and went back to hotel for some chill time maybe plan a waterpark that day, we were fine going forward but that third day it just completely hit us. We went back had some chill time and headed back out later feeling more refreshed.

I would do your waterparks in the morning/early afternoon then head to a park after and stay for evening shows.

We are going to make the most of the fact we will be up super early on the first day and book a pre park opening ADR. Hoping for BOG and then a quick dash around to be on SDMT before the crowds arrive. Last time we went we did garden grill in EPCOT and we're the first in the cue for Soaring.

Thank you!

I will look at re-jigging a little and see if we can get CRT lunch on day one. Really want BOG dinner as my children want to meet the Beast so that will have to be later.

On the Halloween party day the only ADR I was targeting was breakfast so that should still work and allow party time. I will try and shift the water parks but my thinking was around maximising opportunities to get fast passes rather than spend a lot of time in the parks.

We are flexible about length of days so will figure out more detailed timings once park hours are released and I find out if I get the ADRs Im after

On waterpark days we went for opening and left by around 3 and had booked 3 fast passes from around 5pm onwards, had food then stayed for evening shows and worked out well
