    Want 1 day in mk, 1 day in hs, 1 day in epcot and 2 days in ak. 5 full days Sept 25-29 No dr but have dp. Have emh, not sure if we'll use them or not. 2 adults 3 kids. 13, 8, 6 Help?

    Hi, Shane!    You are off to a good start with knowing what parks you want to visit.   When trying to figure out which days to visit each park, I would avoid the parks with early morning  Extra Magic Hours unless you truly plan to be at that park 30 minutes prior to opening.   Otherwise, head to another park.

    Since you have the Disney Dining Plan, I strongly recommend you get online to or call (407)WDW-DINE to make some Advance Dining Reservations.   You are going during a time when free dining is being offered, so many restaurants are going to be booked to capacity and will not accept walk-ups.    To make the most of your dining plan, try to plan enough reservations to use up your 4 Table Service credits that are included in the Disney Dining Plan with your 4 night stay.   Since you already know you want to visit each of the parks, make a dining reservation of each of them.   After long days of walking in parks and waiting in lines, you will be glad to walk up to a podium, give your name and shortly after that be seated for a nice sit-down meal!

    Suggestions:   Magic Kingdom - try Liberty Tree Tavern or Crystal Palace;   Epcot - Teppan Edo in Japan;  Animal Kingdom - Donald's Safari Breakfast;   Hollywood Studios - Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre or 50's Prime Time Cafe.   These are all family friendly restaurants that your kids will enjoy!

    You are off to a great start!   Just get those Advance Dining Reservations and make sure to schedule in some breaks and pool time for the kids.   I'll be down in WDW that same weekend, so I am hoping for some great weather!  Have a great trip!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
