Hi everyone, first I want to thank all the veterans who take the time to help the newbies like me. Twice a year we take an adult vacation to the same place for 10 years and we are those veterans on that message board, so I get it. This is our first time to Disney and after reading the board we decided to do some loose planning but go ahead and wing most of it and just let the magic happen. We are only doing four days at Disney 4th of July week (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th). We decided not do the park on the 4th. Four days is not a lot of time but I know we will make the best of it. We are not staying at a resort since we have family in Orlando we will be staying with. I did plan and reserve one cool dining experience for each day, and that leads into my first question. I tried to make the reservations at the park we are in that day, but I really want to take the boys to T-Rex so I made late lunch reservations for our first day. We will be in MK that day, so what is the best way to get to Downtown Disney? Should we drive or take a bus? The transportation among the parks has me stumped for some reason. So any help Is sooo appreciated. Next question, on day three we will be at AK, since they close at 8pm we thought we would head back to MK because they have the extended hours that night for July 3rd. What is the best way to make that park transfer? Thanks so much for any advice.
