    I know the weeks can change at the drop of a dime on Disney’s end and so finding an itinerary for June 17-24 is tough. Looking at your crystal ball what’s your best guess of what that week might look like? Also, do you have an itinerary sample that can be downloaded and changed on our end?

    Hi Dave – My husband and I are planning our first ever Disney trip 3/9/23-3/16/23. Our kids will be 3, 5, 6, 8. I would love assistance planning our days, well, because I am overwhelmed and have no idea.

    3/9 would be a travel afternoon get settled.
    3/10-3/15 Park days
    3/16 travel home

    Thanks in advance. I’m terrified this is a bad idea without extra adult help.

    Think an off duty cast member wants to assist with kids on rides so less waiting to get each kid to ride, child swapping, etc?

      Hi Jill, I can certainly help with planning your days, once the dates get closer.

      Not sure what you mean by “Think an off duty cast member wants to assist with kids on rides so less waiting to get each kid to ride, child swapping, etc?” Where you think of basically hiring a helper?

    Do you still recommend doing the half day Epcot afternoon on a Saturday during Food and Wine? Thanks.

      Danielle, while weekends can be quite crowded during Food & Wine, ride waits are not much affected by it, so yes.

    Hi Dave, when do you expect mid-July 2022 information to be available? (park hours, emh / late hours for deluxe hotel?)

    I know F&W festival starts July 14th, and we’ll be arriving on July 15th, so I’m trying to plan around that.

      Hi Lori! It’s too early for me to have much guidance, but if I had to decide today, all parks except Hollywood Studios are bad over weekends and better on weekdays. HS is about the same every day. That suggest seeing it on the weekend, saving the other parks for weekdays.

    Hi Dave, I know it’s not quite March 6th yet, but would love to hear your initial thoughts on what parks to see on which days for our trip (9/4-9/12) as I’m working to finalize a plan for dining before our ADR date

      Hi Ashley!! The official calendar is out through 9/9:

      9/4 avoid Epcot; avoid MK unless you are EMH eligible and committed to arriving at least 30 minutes before they begin
      9/5 No great choices
      9/6 avoid HS and MK
      9/7 avoid AK
      9/8 avoid Epcot
      9/9 avoid MK

      After 9/9, a tad more provisional but 90% likely to be right:

      9/10 avoid Epcot
      9/11 avoid Epcot; avoid MK unless you are EMH eligible and committed to arriving at least 30 minutes before they begin
      9/12 No great choices
