    We are coming the last week of April (girls ages 5 and 4- their FIRST Disney trip!!!!!) and I am currently working on my "plans" for each day! How much time should I typically allot for a counter-service lunch in the parks??

    Hi, Jami!  With little kids, it can take a bit longer, but you can estimate yourself based on your girls.  How long does it normally take them to enjoy a meal at your local McDonald's?  Add about ten minutes for wait time to order if you go when it's busy, and you'll have a rough estimate.

    I always plan at least a half hour, but if you're going when it's really hot, you may want to add a bit more time to enjoy the air conditioning and have a cold drink.  My girls always seemed to need more down time during the summer.

    I'm so excited for your princesses first trip!  I hope it all works out as magically as I know you're planning it to be!
