    We have 5 days to do all parks plus BB, TL , DQ. This is our 6th trip of 5 days so we have done a lot. If we cant get to TL, BB , DQ all new to us what should we skip? Also never done table service. What 5 places would u suggest? Boys 8 & 12

    Hello, Danelle!

    For your 6th trip, skip one of the two water parks; they're both fun, but a few hours on one of the two will do. (We love BB!)

    If your boys are gamers, a few hours at DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, on a day when you've scheduled a meal at Downtown Disney would be perfect. ALL of the Table-Service restaurants at Downtown Disney participate in the Dining Plan. Our favorites are: Wolfgang Puck Cafe (West Side); T-REX, A Prehistoric Family Adventure (Marketplace).

    Other favorites:

    Magic Kingdom:  The Crystal Palace (yes, there are WInnie the Pooh characters there, but the buffet is delicious, and your boys can fill their plates as many times as they want!); Tony's Town Square (really tasty pasta dishes!)

    Nearby MK:  Chef Mickey's (Disney's Contemporary Resort...another excellent buffet.)

    Epcot: Le Cellier Steakhouse (in Canada; lunch counts as one meal entitlement, dinner counts as two); Teppan Edo (great hibachi); Coral Reef Restaurant (great food, with a wall of windows into the 5.7 million gallon tank...very cool)

    Animal Kingdom: Tusker House Restaurant (some of the best salmon on property)

    Hollywood Studios: Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano (great food!)  Book a Fantasmic Dining Package if you can for this one.  It does NOT cost extra, and you'll get access to Priority Seating at Fantasmic that night.  At the time of this writing, that also entitles everyone to an appetizer, at no additional cost to you!  With apps such as Calamari for Two and Fresh Mozzarella and Vine-Ripened Tomatoes, you'll  be so happy that you booked this package! YUM!

    Book these ASAP, as the Dining Plan is very popular, and reservations book up quickly for the most popular locations.

    Please send additional questions as you think of them! I'd love to help!
