    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Lauren!

    You have a Walt Disney World Resort coming up, and I know the excitement is building daily! Because you are arriving during the holiday season, your experience will be especially magical and, in my opinion, a great time to visit. You have asked a great question, and my opinions can change depending on the occasion, but since you are visiting during one of my favorite times, I can help with that. 

    If you are seeking fine dining, The Hollywood Brown Derby or Narcoossee's. For character dining, I recommend Chef Mickey’s and Cape May Cafe (for breakfast). For quick service, a top favorite for my family and me is Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory

    My top Must-Dos (especially during the holiday season) involve visiting the Walt Disney World Resorts to admire and enjoy the holiday decorations (be sure to bring your camera). I am a fan of all theme parks. Still, after experiencing Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I promise you will not be disappointed. 

    When navigating the theme parks, arrive early and utilize the Disney Genie Lightning Lane Entry when possible. There is an additional cost, but it is a great way to save time and experience the attractions with a shorter wait time in many cases. 

    Please return and let us know if you have additional questions; we will be happy the help.

    Have a magical stay!
