Have everyone in your family pick ONE must-do activity and do those first. Then, you are sure to get everything done that is top on everyone's list and anything else you get to do is bonus!

Have fun on your trip!

I just got back, Mondays crowd was brutal at MK.
Both of your days are "Park to Avoid" days.... but things will let up late evening.
Use Fast passes to the max and try to schedule shows/character meetings in the afternoon heat so that you can be in the a/c.... and do not criss cross the park for attractions.
and oh yeah.... $3.75 frozen ice cups are lifesavers, even if you have to wait 10 mins in line for it
I was able to smell the roses on the first trip.... you can too !!

Have FUN!!

Remember that you won't get to see everything! I would agree in saying:
Have everyone pick 1 big ride in each park, agree on 1 show per park, and have everyone pick their favorite character to meet and agree to do those things first to get them done!

Utilize fast passes! They are a savior!

I am so excited for you!!
*take a poncho but don't let any rain stand in your way of having a fun time!
*don't know what parks you will be at, but be sure to catch any fireworks shows
*pack any types of over the counter meds you might use because they are outrageously priced in the hotels and parks
*take lots and lots of photos

We just arrived today. Much cooler than I expected and it rained a good part of the day, however, the crowds were really low. 5 min for pirates..10 for jungle cruise... 10 for space mt. The longest wait we had was for tinkerbelle but I have to say it was worth it. We just happened upon the parade while getting ice cream on main st (no Line at all there). I do hope it gets warmer so we can use the pool but we did get a lot more accomplished today than I anticipated.

I arrived today as well - the rain was definitely pretty bad but everyone had a great time with it and the wait times for rides were pretty much walk-on as the afternoon went on. I think the weather is supposed to get better as the week goes on too

Bring your rain gear, hopefully the rain tapers off a little. Mornings will be better or so the forecast says
