We just booked a vacation last night. Since you have to reserve what day you will do each park (or at least start in because we have park hoppers) wondering if anyone has advice for what days to choose for each park in order to reserve our tickets? We will be there Monday-Friday in September but they don't have info up yet on hours and such.
I like starting and ending every trip in MK, it has the most to do and feels the most festive. I put HS in the middle of the week to isolate it from long weekend/partial week visitors. The others were arbitrary.
You'll see Epcot busier on a Friday late afternoon/evening and MK is typically busier on Mondays but otherwise, won't be a huge difference between weekdays. Now weekends...
Thanks! We will do 2 days at MK. Does it matter whether they are back to back vs day Tues/Thurs?
Nah, shouldn't matter.
Right now, HS books to capacity almost everyday so that park stays fairly consistent 7 days a week. September is typically slow season, and things will be ramping up for the 50th, so who knows what capacity will look like...
I looked at crowd calendar predictions and all kinds of things when we planned our trip, but now everything is so different. I might avoid MK on Monday? Also "save" it a bit?
We did AK first. I would do that again. It's beautiful and fun but not so much that the kids are let down by other things, and I felt less pressure to get to EVERYTHING there when we were just getting used to being at Disney. Mon AK Tues MK Wed Epcot Thurs HS Fri MK
Taking kids? Is it their first time? FWIW, when we took our first trip, we did Epcot first. BIG MISTAKE. My 5 y/o DD was like "Disney isn't as magical as I thought it was". She was expecting the castle and princesses. (We did see princesses later that day at Akershus, but the first half of the day we were lost and there were no princesses to be found).
So, my advice is if it is a kid's first trip, start at MK so you can see the castle.

We went several years ago, and IIRC, we did - AK on afternoon/evening of arrival, which was a Friday. Disney had been blowing up advertising about the Avatar area at that time, so DD was keen to see it glow and the treeeeee! Lol HS - Saturday (this was before Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge) MK - Sunday, and yes to the MAGIC Epcot - Monday MK - Tuesday AK - Wednesday And then home on Thursday
We followed the recs from Disney bloggers on which days to hit up the parks. Is anyone still tracking or has covid made that too difficult?
