So, me + 4 kids in July. 8 day hoppers. We’ve never had hoppers and I’m struggling with how to do it without wearing everyone out. We’ve never gone in the summer but it was super hot last in October last year and just completely zapped everyone’s energy. I’m trying to balance maximizing the park hopper thing with not melting into the pavement.
My current plans are getting into whichever park has EMH early and leaving by early afternoon. I’ve also booked EMM in TSL and FL two of our mornings.
I’m almost hesitant to schedule things in the evenings not knowing how much the heat will drain the kids. How do you guys normally do that? I have booked some dinners at night at our resort (AKL) but should I also book some dinners in the parks and just bump and run whichever one doesn’t work for us that day depending on how energy levels are holding up?
Park hours are currently 9-9 most days, with MK currently scheduled to close at 10 maybe two nights during the trip. EP and MK also each have one night with evening EMH but I’m nervous to bank on those. My kids will be 13 (DNiece), 8, 7 and 5. The older three I’m expecting to hang really well but the 5 year old is the one who often needs the most sleep…but sometimes she surprises me and will occasionally be able to stay up late.
