I would really appreciate some of your advice on my plans... in particular I do wonder if my plans don't have enough down time on the MK days.
We are a family of four, 2 parents, 2 girls aged 8 and 5. First timers to WDW from the UK.
This is a special holiday (vacation!) to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We are staying at the Contemporary for 7 nights. We'll probably be back to WDW - but probably not until the oldest is in her teens.
I have mainly planned days, just two evenings in parks, as I'm aware of our limits with the kids, and considering adjusting to the time difference too.
Apologies as this is long, but hopefully I'm in the company of some other detailed planners here, right?!
Day 1 - arrive into MCO 5 p.m. Pick up rental car, settle into hotel, grab QS dinner (imagine we will be jet lagged and just trying to stay awake!)
Day 2 - 7 a.m. Chef Mickey's breakfast. Then MK. Idea is to tour expeditiously in the morning, then relax a little from midday-ish but stick around for the parade, is viewing in Frontierland a good choice? At Paris the girls loved the parade and it is something they still talk about (and watch on youtube!). Then back to the hotel for pool/dinner.

Day 3 - Animal Kingdom, using morning EMH just because I anticipate we'll still be up early with jet lag, lunch ADR at Yak and Yeti for 11.30 a.m. This day should mainly be about seeing the animals and the shows. I don't think the kids will be up for the big rides so are not planning on them. This is why we've used FP for Lion King and Nemo.
Day 4 - Epcot, again using morning EMH, hoping to do Soarin' (with FP), Test Track and Frozen by 10 a.m. -the plan seems to think we can?! Lunch ADR at Coral Reef, 11.40 a.m. This will be a short day, and back to the hotel for pool, and early night as Day 5/Wednesday we have a lot planned.
Day 5 - 8 a.m. breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table, a couple of hours at MK, back to Contemporary for lunch/short rest, then to HS. Fantasmic dining package at Hollywood & Vine, 4.45 pm. At HS only must do is Frozen (may try to get fast pass for this?). Hubs would like to do Star Wars, may or may not get the kids on this!
Day 6 - Epcot - exploring World Showcase with a lazy start after previous busy day. Dinner at 'Ohana 5 p.m.
Day 7 - MK with morning EMH - at MK all day but I think the kids will really want to see the parade again. I can't figure out how to squeeze a break in!!
Lunch at BOG, 11.40 am,
Dinner at Crystal Palace, 5 p.m.
Have I planned too much - this is our last day.
Will either view Wishes from the Contemporary or in the park - depending how we feel.
Day 8 - Breakfast at The Wave, then depart for a week of relaxation on the Gulf coast!
