So I'll be getting in on a red eye at 5am Sunday, 2/2 and leaving Thursday 2/6 at 6pm, so 4 and a half days in the parks. I have an AP, so I can hop, but I hear it can be quite time consuming. We are staying on site, probably at a value resort (I booked Art of Animation already so I could get a jump start on dining reservations but will probably change it when it's closer and there are some AP or other discounts available).
Right now I'd like to figure out how much time I'll need in each park and which I should do I which day so I can make the rest of the dining reservations. The only set thing is BOG on Wednesday at 4. I have never been to WDW but am a frequent DLR visitor. I solve to hear tips and suggestions on hotels, restaurants, rides, shows, time in the parks, etc. I'm waiting for the park hours to be released so i can better plan too! Oh, I do want to get out to Universal for Harry Potter...can I do that in half a day? Do I need to rent a car for that or are there shuttles or busses?
thanks so much!
