    Never been & decided to visit in '11! There will be 2 adults & 3 kids (7, 6, may be 2 or 3 at time). Want to stay on site; need advice on best time to go (economically/weather), how long to stay, must do's, are meal plans a good deal? I need LOTS

    I would recommend visiting in the Fall mid to late September.  The weather is generally comfortably warm not sweltering.  The crowds have traditionally been lower, and its not peak so the rates are lower.  I would recommend deciding how many character meals you want to attend, and then decide on the meal plan.  The website does have menu's and prices for many of the restaurants.  The meal plan will save you greatly if you plan on attending multiple character meals and dinner shows.  I would definitely stay for a week 7 days will give you enough time to get through all the parks and not have to rush.  Must see attractions:  Toy Story Mania (Hollywood Studios), Fantasyland (Magic Kingdom), Kilimanjaro Safari (Animal Kingdom), 50's Prime time cafe (Hollywood Studios) Soarin' (EPCOT)
