Best plan for each park with kids and grandparents!!! Help please

Hi there!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the in from everyone!! I'm looking for a little guidance for the best way to do each park. It's myself, my two boys who are 9 and 7, and my parents. My stepfather is almost 80. We want to ride all hot rides but I don't want to zig zag thru any park bc he's not very mobile. How do you suggest we select fast passes for each park and then rides that coincide so we can try to do a "big circle" as opposed to back and forth each day. We are doing MK with mickeys Halloween one day and again another night to catch parade and fireworks, Epcot and HS. Thanks so much!!

My family usually does not bother with rushing from one side of a park to the other and prefer to go through an area at a time. For example, at Magic Kingdom, we do FantasyLand first and then AdventureLand.

We would make sure to get to each park before rope drop to take advantage of as much of the lower-crowd time as possible.

We went with an 80+ year old grandparent, and came to the realization that we just had to spend some time split up.

That being said, we haven't been to WDW since FP+ started, so I don't have any more advice.

You should probably ask over on the Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies forum for the best possible replies.

1. If you have an 80 year old in your party, explore the possibility of renting an ECV. It is not unusual to walk many miles each day in the parks. Not to mention all that time spent just standing in lines.

2. Look at the "cheat sheets" on easywdw.com. These provide an efficient touring plan for each park, along with suggestions for FP use.

3. While you are on easywdw, look at the crowd calendars to select the best park for each day.
