    Coming in Oct and are getting 6 day park hopper. Girls age 4 and 6 & boy age 11. Girls want to meet/meal w/ Cinderella- any recommendations on this? Also don't know how to split up our time among the parks. How much time should we alot for each?

    Hi, Erin!  If you want to have a meal with Cinderella, as soon as your 90 day advanced dining reservation window opens up, you need to call first thing in the morning to secure a reservation.  For the experience of meeting Cinderella, try to get breakfast or lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table.  Inside Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom, this is the quintessential Cinderella dining experience, and most little girls dream of having the chance to enjoy this meal.  It does book up very quickly, though, so there can be no delaying making those reservations.

    Another good meal where you can probably see Cinderella is at dinner at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian.  This buffet meal features the princess and some of her step family, and can be fun for the whole family.

    Keep in mind that the characters do sometimes change at the various dining locations!

    Our family likes to devote one day to each park, then usually if we have extra time, we revisit the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  If I were you, though, I'd see what things your kids really enjoyed and how much you get done at each park.  With park hoppers, you'll have the flexibility to hit just the attractions that were popular with your family with your two extra days!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
