I noticed you said you dont reccomend taking children to the food and wine festival. We are going to disney for my daughter’s 6th birthday next month and will be there oct 16th-21st. We did not plan on avoiding epcot due to this. We actually have a day and a half planned at Epcot. Do you think this will be an issue? Advice on avoiding drunks and crowds? Hopefully it helps that we are going on a Monday and Tuesday.

So since you mentioned the change in which ride order you would do in MK… (Winnie the pooh, then under the sea) will you be updating the current itenary you have on the site? For my upcoming trip in March I wanted to use that one as our guide. Luckily we will be driving to WDW. And will drive to the parks, we also will be at All Star Movie.
