I’m with Andrea, usually do commando mornings, go with the flow afternoons.
We hit rope drop at every park, hit all the must do’s then after lunch depending on which park we’re in determines what we do.
-If in MK we leave around 2, only because we’re staying in that area and won’t waste much time in transit. When they design another 3:00 parade worth staying for then we may, until then we return before 6 to wrap up a few more attractions before the fireworks. Back to the room before midnight.
-If in EP we stay all day. Too much to see, no time to leave. If we need a break we’ll take a small one at each country since we’re usually “consuming” around the world anyway. Leave after Illuminations. Next trip may change since we plan on doing a split stay between SoG/ BW Resorts.
-If in AK since that park closes the earliest we stay till Jammin Parade, hit river ride one last time for total soakdown then head out by 5. That’s usually my laundry day while the kids have pizza out by the pool.
-HS is our least fav park of the 4. Hit rope drop, leave by lunch and go to BB if we have water tix then back at 6 to close the park. If no water then leave after the 3:00 parade and head to EP. The boat ride over is a break in itself.
All this works for us now, and when the girls were younger.
