    Sounds good except for where you say "half day" at somewhere, in my experience you end up spending all day there and forgetting what else you had planned. But as long as you are prepared to be flexible with the itinerary you should be fine. :D

    Sounds good but only make it a rough plan and very flexible so you don't exhaust yourselves and get upset if it doesn't go to plan XXXXXX

    Wise words Helly. I think it's good to have an outline but things happen and plans change so hopefully you can be quite flexable.
    Have you booked your ADR.

    Overall, looks good as a basic outline. As others have noted, plan to be flexible when needed. If everyone is enjoying a "half day" attraction, stay longer. If everyone is bored, move on to something else! Just don't judge any park by the first few minutes or hour. Take the time to explore a bit before deciding it isn't for you. :D

    One concern is the split day at MK. Depending on the location of your villa, you may spend a lot of time on the road. I find it's harder to leave and return to a park than just stay all day, unless there is a real reason (someone really needs to rest at resort, etc.) for the break. Although some of the attractions may seem childish to your older children, there is a lot to do at MK. If you enjoy shopping, you easily can spend several hours on Main Street without going any farther! Save it for later in the day though, and grab FastPasses for the most important attractions first. :)

    When you go to DHS for the dinner package and Fantasmic, it might be a good idea to arrive around 2:00 p.m. and take in one of the live shows prior to dinner. I find it difficult to fit all of them into one day, due to the scheduling. Perhaps Beauty & the Beast on Fantasmic day, as it isn't too far from H&V. Lights, Motors, Action and Indiana Jones are farther back into the park and should work well to schedule on the same day.

    It's your holiday and you know what your family will enjoy most. That's what's important! :)
