(To-Do Lists for Other Walt Disney World Itineraries)

By Dave Shute

OVERVIEW: TO DO LISTS FOR WALT DISNEY WORLD

See the sections and their links below for Walt Disney World To-Do Lists by arrival date, and also for alternative itineraries for the December week and for shorter itineraries for the rest of the year.

(Note that a good travel agent, such as Destinations in Florida, can do almost all of this for you, for free. If you use Destinations in Florida as your travel agent through a link for this site–like this one–then they share a bit of the pixie dust they get from Disney with me.)

Love your site! I am trying to figure out what to do list and itinerary I would use we are arriving on a Thursday late afternoon on May 5 and leaving May 12 afternoon

Thanks

Pam–
I basically only have Saturday through Sunday itineraries.

You can bridge much of one of these itineraries over your weeks–treat the days as real, as different things happen on Thursdays than on Sundays, etc. So pick up the Thursday itinerary when you arrive, then do the Friday itinerary, etc.

The right one for your period is here, but see this.

It wont’ work perfectly becauseof your different travel days and because the stuff on Saturday assumes you’d been to the parks already on Tuesday, etc, but it should give you a strong start.

See this for helping to sort the remaining issues out.

what itinerary would you recomend if were going the first week of march

Anthony, I’ll recommend a specific itinerary when operating hours come out–6 months ahead–but it will be the Autumn Winter Spring itinerary, with changes as needed based on the specific operating hours

We are planning our first disney world trip for June 1, 2012 to June 10, 2010. A family of four. My daughter will be 16 and my son will be 8. Any help or advice is always appreciated. Thanks

Hi,
What a great site. I would really love your help though as I am totally overwhelmed!
We are wanting to come over from Australia from the 10th Jan 2014. Is this a good time? we have 2 kids 4 (girl) and 6 (boy). we would really love to stay in one of the fun rooms for kids but looking at all the site they are all sold out. how far out do you need to book to get these?
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks,
G

Hi Gen, and thanks!

The key question is whether or not this will be you only trip. If it’ll be your only trip–well, then the kids are too young (see this: http://yourfirstvisit.net/planning-your-first-family-trip/how-oldtall-your-children-should-be/ ) and you’ll also potentialy face misisng some of the best loved rides from ride closures–see this: http://yourfirstvisit.net/2010/05/12/winter-ride-closures-at-walt-disney-world/

If you’ll be able to return, that’s an OK time. The weekends of the 11th and of the 18th will both be crowded–the first from the DIsney marathon, and the second because it’s a US holiday weekend. But the days in between, and after the 20th, should be wonderfully uncrowded.

The reason you can’t book is that the on-line system won;t let anyone nbook beyond 2013 right now. That should change this month, sometime, when the final 2014 prices are out and in the system. In the meantime, if you are not willing to wait, see this: http://yourfirstvisit.net/2011/02/21/how-far-in-advance-can-you-book-a-walt-disney-world-vacation/

Hope this helps a bit, and keep the questions coming…

NG, none of my itineraries fit your dates. Suggest you get my book The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit and focus on the material in the beginning and end of Chapter 6.
