Disney World Itineraries

By Dave Shute

WALT DISNEY WORLD ITINERARIES BY ARRIVAL WEEK

I have retired all my previous itineraries and created a new one–the first of many to come–to optimize a week-long visit in the new era of Walt Disney World.

This page provides below links to Walt Disney World itineraries by arrival week. Each itinerary includes links to daily guidance and a to-do list.

Itineraries are released as Disney releases its calendar—which it currently usually does weekly, providing it for about the next ~2 months.

  • For a December 3, 2022 arrival date, use the Genie+ Itinerary, but strongly consider adding holiday program elements from the second part of this page

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

2 Dave { 03.03.20 at 12:26 pm }

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

Hello Dave!
I would love your opinion on which order to visit/avoid parks March 9-18 2021
Thank you!
Lori

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, 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.

6 Dave { 04.13.22 at 9:41 am }

Hi James, its been about 60-70 days lately, so early to mid-May.

7 Joseph Sysling { 05.24.22 at 10:04 pm }

My wife and daughter are planning a trip Dec. 1 2022
Day 1 arrive
Day 2 MK
Day 3 Rest
Day 4 EPCOT
Day 5 Hollywood Studios
Day 6 travel home

What would be the best Itinerary for their adventure while at the park?

8 Dave { 05.26.22 at 1:25 pm }

Hi Joseph, I don’t right now have any one day itineraries, but let me know how old your daughter is, and I’ll help

9 Danielle { 07.11.22 at 5:18 pm }

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

10 Dave { 07.14.22 at 10:40 am }

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

11 Jill { 08.03.22 at 10:23 pm }

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?

12 Dave { 08.07.22 at 5:58 pm }

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?

13 Ricardo { 11.20.22 at 8:29 pm }

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?

14 Dave { 11.25.22 at 12:06 pm }

Ricardo, the itinerary in the link at the end works right now pretty much all the time. But there’s much uncertainty about changes to the parks with the CEO change, so keep checking back with me! https://yourfirstvisit.net/2022/03/24/disney-world-genie-itinerary/
