    Coming to WDW 8/4-8/8. We are leaving early on 8/8 so no park that day.I'm overwhelmed by all the options available. We have the dining plan which includes a sit down meal. We are staying at AOA. Need ideas and suggestions on things to do.


    Don't let all the options faze you. What you need to do is take it step by step, and it will piece together quickly.

    Step 1: Figure out where you want to go each day. With 4 days I would recommend you start off at the Magic Kingdom on the 4th, then go to two other parks on the 5th and 6th, returning to the Magic Kingdom on the 7th. But write me back with info on your party (ages, interests, etc.), and I can refine the recommendation.

    Step 2: Plan your 1 table service per day. Go with either breakfasts or dinners, so that you are not eating into your day. I have one recommendation per park below. But really there are options that might be better, based on your party and what you like to eat.

    Magic Kingdom: Be Our Guest
    Epcot: Via Napoli
    Hollywood Studios: 50s Prime Time Cafe
    Animal Kingdom: Tusker House

    Step 3: For your counter service credits don't fret too much on where to go. Just go wherever you are when the lunch hunger hits you. But you might find that breakfast at the Art of Animation food court could be a better choice, as they are a great dining option with good quality and a lot of variety.

    So that is a start. Write me back if you want more help on parks or other dining choices. I am glad to help!

    Have a magical vacation!
