Yes! I can't wait to go on the little mermaid ride

I tried to come up with a plan for our week based on that previous week (as things don't seem to change much), but I can't find one that I'm truly satisfied with. Your opinion, again, would be appreciated.
I would wait to decide on your parks until the hours come out for August. here is a website that I found really helpful:http://www.easywdw.com/category/calendar/july11/. He explains what days are best to visit which park, and why. I would always double check his calendar with Disney's, though. The August 2011 crowd calendar isn't out yet.

A rest day, or slower day (as I'm sure we won't be able to "rest" for one full day ) would be nice somewhere in the middle.
We won't be getting park hoppers, either. I don't like spending a large portion of the day bopping around from park to park. We are avoiding most of the EMH days, except for one where MK is open until 2am. I couldn't resist

- Will we be okay touring MK after a late night, if we get up late?
- Do we have scheduled enough down time?
- Enough time at DTD and DisneyQuest (for Ron, he loves it there)?
- Is one rope drop enough at MK?
- We started with AK last time as our first park, I don't know why but I feel like I should start with a different park this time. Silly, I know.

What do you think?
I want to start our trip with MK because I think it will help me get into the Disney spirit. I also like to have at least a day and a half for AK. In the past, I have only toured HS in one day, but I have had to skip a lot. This time, we are devoting a day and a half to HS. As for the down time and late night touring concerns, that is up to you. Are you used to going to the parks all day, nonstop? I get a lot of energy at Disney, so I don't really need a lot in the way of downtime. One or two mornings to sleep in (and by "sleeping in" I mean missing rope drop ) and a couple well-placed snack breaks are enough for me. I think it also depends on how you're feeling that day.

I am so sorry about your mom! I hope she gets better!
