9am - England: Get kids wrist bands then line up at Sesame Street Forest gate.
After lunch, we'll hit Land of Dragons for the kids, BBW (for adultsA), take a Skyride ride, catch a show, ride Apollo's Chariot, LNM, ect. but at a much more leisurely pace.
Thanks in advance for your comments.

From Tamara BellI couldn't really tell you on the timing bit as much however I can give this advice.

First, baby swap is awesome and very quick, however you really have to get the coasters in the morning before the park fills up. We usually go to Loch Ness, then race over to Germany and let our son play around in the land of the dragons.
Next we run over to Alpengeist, baby swap again.
This year we're going to go over to Italy and get on Apollos Chariot since we missed it last year. That one is a great ride that really hurt to miss but our son was getting cranky so decided to try for it this year.
In between riding the coasters we try to throw in fun things for our son to do whenever we're in the area.
The big thing we always do is only go on weekdays, have a snack at around 11am and then eat lunch at 1 to 2 pm, that way we miss some of the rush.
How old are your children? Our son will be 5 1/2 this year so we expect he will be able to hang in there longer before hitting his "I'm tired of this, I need a break" bit.
