I have a plan for our trip in September (we are first timers) and we are staying on site at Coronado Springs on the Disney Dining Plan.

THURSDAY 5TH SEPT
Travel day/check in to Coronado Springs
depending on arrival time maybe uber to Walmart or check out Disney Springs.

FRIDAY 6TH SEPT
BOG (9:05AM)
morning in MK
afternoon in HS (depending on how tired we are, and how busy it is as conscious of Galaxy's Edge.
(I have managed to bag a reservation at California Grill for 5pm on this day but unsure how realistic that is)

SATURDAY 7TH SEPT
Morning in AK
Lunch at Sanaa 1:25pm
Afternoon/Evening in Epcot

SUNDAY 8TH SEPT

Evening at AK (I realised we had no other evening planned for AK)

In some ways to me it seems like loads but in others I feel like i'm missing out on things. (disney springs, broadwalk, mini golf, disney character warehouse)

Thanks for any input!

That was just a typo I meant 60 days. My 60 day window is 7th July as we fly on the 5th Sept. Thanks though as that could have been a disaster!

I was using the water parks as rest days as I assumed they would be less intense than the theme parks? I also assumed that the Kennedy Space centre wouldn't be as full on as the theme parks? (I may well be wrong on that)

Do you usually block out a whole day for rest/chill?

I guess the water parks are less intense than the main parks but you still have to get up, get ready and head out etc

We stay in a villa so its a little different as we will block out a whole day/maybe two for rest and just relax around the villa pool for most of the day then maybe go out for an hour or two later in the evening.

Having said that, on our last trip on one of our rest days everyone wanted to go for an extra day at Universal so we just jumped in the car and went.

I think rest days are important, especially with children! Although you dont state if you are taking little ones so may be different for you.

Not sure the make up of your party but it reads as full on. We go as a couple and our first few trips were planned in a similar way to you, lots on and lots to do. We loved it!
Was it relaxing? No
Was it tiring at times? Yes
Would I go back and change it? No!
We take it at a more relaxed pace now but I get that desire to do as much as you can while youre there, just be willing to be flexible if it becomes too much.
Hope HS isnt too manic for you 🤞🏻

Yes I guess the plus side is that the water parks open a tiny bit later than the other parks, but you are right. Perhaps I should factor in a little more pool/ rest time.

As you say we can always change our minds and head to the parks if we fancy it.

We don't have any children so we don't have little ones to worry about.
