    Hi Andrea! thanks so much! Yes we are going to be on a dining plan. My original plan was to do Akerhaus at Epcot for the Princess experience, but my concern with Epcot is world showcase may be boring for DD. And I'd love to know the secret :) Thanks again!

    Hi, Lisa!

    Glad you're back with more questions!

    First, don't be concerned that your little princess will be bored at Epcot, as there is so much for her do there. Attractions she'll love include Soarin' (40" height requirement), The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure (so fun!), Ellen's Energy Adventure, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros and so many activities at Innoventions. Truly, you couldn't possibly get to experience all of the fun your daughter can have in just one day at Epcot. My twin 6-year-old nieces spent several days with us at Epcot this past summer, and they had a blast all day, each day. No worries!

    On the other hand, if you are adding the Park Hopper Option to your park tickets, you could easily head to an early breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, then make the easy trip over Disney's Hollywood Studios. Catch the resort bus from Epcot to HS, or, if you are close to The International Gateway (between England and France in the World Showcase) you could make it an easy 15-minute walk from one park to the other.

    The secret I referred to in my earlier answer, by the way, is related to Guests who book the Fantasmic! Meal Experiences at Disney's Hollywood Studios (they are given access to VIP seating for Fantasmic! later that same night.) Even better, though, is that Guests who use their Dining Plan to book the Fantasmic! Meal Experience at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano are entitled to a complimentary appetizer. Their Crispy Calamari and Fresh Mozzarella and Vine-ripened Tomatoes are always mouth-wateringly good; add the fact that they were free, and I'm hooked.

    Send more questions, Lisa. I love to help!
