    Hi! Just booked our 1st trip, so excited! We have 7 day of reservations but will only be in park 5, have the dining plan. Is it smart to do a character dining each day? Or is there better ways to use table services? Have 7,8 yr old girls.

    Hi Erika,

    My family loves character dining, but we never do a character dining experience each day. I would think that three or four would be best. Character meals typically take a little longer than a regular meal, so it can be overwhelming to do more than a handful of them. Keep in mind that some dining locations, like Cinderella's Royal Table, take 2 dining credits per person.

    If you are looking for a few restaurants that do not have characters but do offer great food, I'd recommend the San Angel Inn and Via Napoli in Epcot, Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom, the Wave at the Contemporary, and the Flying Fish on the Boardwalk.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation.
