exchange 2010 to exchange 2013 migration considerations when journaling involved

I am planning to migrate from exchange 2010 to exchange 2013. I currently have two mailbox databases: one for user mailboxes and one for journal mailboxes. How does the typical exchange migration change when journaling is involved and is there a different order to do things in? I will not be moving all mailboxes over at once, also; they will be moved in stages.

Thanks in advance!

You have to point new databases to the journal mailboxes.

any other more specific comments or advice on what order to move things in? For example, should I move the journal mailbox first or last? etc.

you can move whatever is more comfortable for you. It doesn't matter, If you are going to keep Co-existence of a while than you can move any on your own pace. Just be aware, if the journal mailboxes are huge in size than you might have to consider doing it sometime when you have less mail flow, like over weekend or in the night.

It is going to take time to sync the huge mailbox and during the switch over there will be a little disruption and you might see mail queues for journaling emails.
