Planning Which Park to Visit Each Day of Your Disney World Vacation

One key to successfully planning your Walt Disney World vacation is determining which park you will visit on each day.

By following a few simple steps, you can develop this plan. Doing this task ahead of time can also help you decide where you wish to make dining reservations.

Since Dining Reservations can now only be made 90 days prior to your arrival, you should start this part of the process no later than 100 days prior to your trip.

Here are the steps that you should take to aid you in your planning:
1. Go to http://www.disneyworld.com/ to get the latest information on Park Hours and Extra Magic Hours for each of the Parks.

For an example let’s plan a trip for May 16th – 23rd (roughly 100 days away). We will plan on arriving on Saturday and departing the following Saturday, since that is the most popular day for arrival.

The Extra Magic Hour schedule for that week is as follows:

2. Use an Extra Magic Hour Strategy to plan which park you will visit on which day. I will use the "visit the day after an Extra Magic Hour day" strategy here:

This strategy involves seeing where everyone is going the day before and heading to that park the next day. Rarely do people go to the same park on consecutive days. This example is based upon 2 days at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, 1 at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, and the 7th day spent returning to the favorite between AK and DS.

3. Choose Restaurants that make sense to eat at in or near the park you are visiting each day. Always have a back-up or two in mind when making reservations. Also if you really want to eat at a particular restaurant and it is not available on the day you were visiting that park, see if it is available on another day during your trip and adjust your schedule accordingly. Reservations for popular restaurants fill up fast, so it is strongly recommended that you call for reservations as soon as possible.

As always this is just a strategy, and you need to adapt it to your personal needs. If you have never visited before this will certainly give you a good plan to try during your vacation. The goal is to try to visit each of the parks on days where the attendance is traditionally lower than other days of the week. This doesn't guarantee short lines, but it will allow you to make the most of your visit no matter what time of year you travel.
