Ak is a killer when it's hot...
I had to vote for AK even though it is my favourite park after HS. The one park I dont like (nor do my kids) is MK, so for us we would always leave that one out. We are even staying at Coronado so that we are neatly sandwiched between MGM and AK. As you say choices are personal. I hope you manage to sort out what suits you.
I would drop DS. I love AK.
