What do you guys think of my plans (updated)


These are my family’s current plans for WDW this April.

There are 8 of us, 2 adults and 6 kids aged 9,12,13,15,17,19.

We have been to DLR once and HKDL twice.

We will probably not return for a long time so we are trying to get as much done as possible.

We are staying at the Treehouses at Saratoga Springs and will have a hire car.

As a first time, WDW visitor would you change anything?

Any suggestions on FP different from what I have put down?


I would personally consider making Epcot one day and Animal Kingdom one day rather than splitting the two. That’s a lot of wasted time traveling between the two.


Thanks for pointing that out. I had the park hopping working a bit differently in a previous version and didn’t realise it’s EP/AK one day and AK/EP another in this new one.


Funny, I do not think I have ever not split days! I see you have all the night time attractions on your plans you intend to do- I expect HEA is on one or possibly both of your MK nights?

Question about your AK/EP day. Will you plan on getting there extra early if you are unable to get FoP?


If you have park hoppers why would you not plan with them? My days are always split into two sections and then planned from there. I always start with a list of what I want to do: night time shows, rope drop FoP, HS one am and one PM…


We would probably try and arrive early whether or not we get a FOP FP.

How would you spend 7 days making use of park hopper with a mostly rest day and wanting to do all nighttime shows and as many rides/shows as possible?


I would first plan out my nights. Then, I would look if there was anything that was an early morning (like FoP). Some people look at the crowd calendar. I think you should think of your own priorities first and then plan those first.

See if this works- this is my Feb trip https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/107IEhTDJ4nL_FMUFaB6P64HJTzILOiZVRiXCfGEPa-k


I have requested access to the spreadsheet


I would say don’t count on the FEA FP if you’re going to try for a same day one. Especially with a group of 8. Otherwise what worked for us was figuring out what ADRs we really wanted and what we could get (we were also a group of 8). With Park hopper you can then figure out which parks on what days and if it works better to split days. When figuring it out I also did like @PrincipalTinker and wrote out my days as morning and evening.


I’d love to see your plan, as well @PrincipalTinker. I love to see how people plan out their days at WDW.


Will someone check to see if I just made it public?

Also, this is just how I would plan before I build any touring plans…very primitive.


I can see it.


When you do this do you save your FP+ for the second park? Or do you use them in the first park and then pick up additional for the second park?


Usually but I always use FPs in HS.


Got it. Cool to see.

This is my primitive plan for our May trip - before Fastpasses and without a touring plan finalized.


I travel with a 26 and 28 year old. I sometimes have been known to note the bars/lounges on my Plan. I miss the days that your plan reminds me of.


Well, because I travel with 4 kids ages 2 to 12, I also need to note bars/lounges on my plan… with a to-go counter! :grin:
