    Hi Moms & Dads, Staying at Pop March 22-26, which building should I request to be closest to the bus stop? Also 4 day no hopper with 7 & 11 year old girls,any advice on what parks to visit on certain days?Any recommendations for good quick service?

    Hello JoAnne!
    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World resort, I'm sure you are happily planning away as it won't be too much longer now!  The preferred pool view area, which is buildings building 4 and 5, is the closest to Classic Hall and the bus stop.  There is an extra charge of $20 per a night for these rooms, but in my opinion is worth every penny.  After spending the day walking in the parks, it is nice to have a short walk to my room in the evening.
    On arrival day my family usually visits Animal Kingdom,  this park does not typically take all day to visit. Since there is no Extra Magic Hours that evening, it shouldn't be too busy.  Extra Magic Hours are a perk to staying on Disney property, but during busy times of the year it can make a park become more crowded.  I recommend avoiding those parks with extra magic hours, especially when visiting during a busy time such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter.  I use the site, they provide a crowd calendar that gives suggestions on which parks to visit on which day. 
    I love dining at Walt Disney World, but sometimes table service meals can take too much time out of touring the parks.  Sunshine Seasons in Epcot is one of my very favorite counter service meals in all of Walt Disney World, there are lots of choices and the food is really good.  Columbia Harbor House in Magic Kingdom is also one of my top picks, it is usually not very busy especially if you choose to dine on the second floor.  Rounding out my favorite counter service restaurants is Captain Cook's Snack Company at the Polynesian Resort (they have self serve Dole Whips) and Restaurantosaurus in Animal Kingdom.  I hope this helps, please let us know if we can answer anymore of your questions!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
