We will be at the parks at WDW beginning Monday, August 14 through Thursday, August 17 (4 days at the parks).
We’ve always heard it is best to go to MK on Tuesday (which we have in the past and it worked out great.) We also heard to aviod MK on Monday, but “TouringPlans” has both Monday and Tuesday listed as recommended for MK, but avoiding the other 3 parks on both Monday and Tuesday. Which other park besides MK should we attend on Monday (I want to do MK on Tuesday).
Heres what “TouringPlans” recommends each day:
Mon, 14 Aug / Best Park = MK / Parks to Aviod = EP DS AK
Tue, 15 Aug / Best Park = MK / Parks to Aviod = EP DS AK
Wed, 16 Aug / Best Park = DS / Parks to Aviod = AK
Thu, 17 Aug / Best Park = EP AK / Parks to Aviod = MK
I’m thinking MK on Tuesday and MGM Disney Studios on Wednesday. But I’m not sure about the other two days.
Two years ago, we only went for 3 days (our son was only 2). We did the following:
Monday: AK (morning), DS/MGM (rest of the day)
Wednesday: MK (until 4:00 pm) , EP (rest of day)
Last year, we just did one day at MK on a Tuesday. But we got through the park in one day because the crowd was about half compared to the previous year. The only difference was one week later in August when Florida schools are in session.
This year, we are traveling with my brother-in-law’s family (two girls, 9 & 15…our son is 4). We plan on splitting up some of the time, but want to stay within the same parks. We will have parkhopper on our tickets.
Any suggestions for Monday and Thursday? (or Tuesday and Wednesday?) I’ve heard the EP is good at handling larger crowds, but I’d hate to do EP the first day (this will be the other family’s first visit to WDW). Would AK be okay to do on Monday if we got there right when it opened? Then do EP on Thursday?
As I’m writing this, I’m forming a tentative plan. I guess I’m thinking about the following:
Monday = AK (maybe some of the evening at MK)
Tuesday = MK
Wednesday = DS
Thursday = EP
I just want their first visit to WDW to be as nice as it can be.
I appreciate any input. :pirate:
