    Hi, Gennifer!  It seems that there have been so many people facing difficult times lately, but how wonderful that you and your precious daughter get to remove yourself from the stresses of every day life and rejuvenate with some pixie dust!  I hope it works magic for you both!

    If it were up to me, especially if I was trying to relax and be as stress free as possible, I'd just go with the flow.  Don't over schedule yourself - just play some things by ear.  There are restaurants with dining reservations available, and while you might not get a character meal, you might get a unique dining experience.  Restaurant Marrakesh has belly dancing!  Sanaa has tables that overlook the animals on the savanna.  Whispering Canyon Cafe has all sorts of shenanigans taking place.  Or skip the reservations, and enjoy a meal at Pizza Planet or the food court at one of the value resorts.  You can have just as much fun there!

    If you want to plan some down time, enjoy the pool at your resort.  Also, when you check in, ask if there is a schedule of activities taking place at your resort.  You may find games poolside or a craft activity in the lobby.

    The most important thing is to take your time, relax, enjoy your little girl, and soak up as much magic as you can.  It sounds like you could really use some!

    I'm sending you a big, virtual hug, Gennifer!  I hope Mickey and friends are able to dry some of those tears and help you find your silver lining!
