    Hi Doug! You are the best at scheds so I am asking for your advice. 1st trip w/DH,DDS 7 & 4. Super excited!!!! POP 9/24-10/4, have Basic DP, all 4 parks & DTD, no park hopper/water parks. Want char. meals esp princesses,not CRT. MK 1st day for sure


    Love your excitement level! You are going to have a GREAT time!

    So here is where I would go, with some dining suggestions by location and for what meals you could eat there (Breakfast "B", Lunch "L", or Dinner "D");

    • September 24 - Arrival Day
    • September 25 - Magic Kingdom (Chef Mickey's, B/D)
    • September 26 - Magic Kingdom (Crystal Palace, B/L/D)
    • September 27 - Animal Kingdom (Tusker House, B/L/D)
    • September 28 - Epcot (Restaurant Akershus, B/L/D)
    • September 29 - Hollywood Studios (50s Prime Time Cafe, L/D)
    • September 30 - Magic Kingdom (Whispering Canyon Cafe (B/L/D)
    • October 1 - Epcot (Rose and Crown, L/D)
    • October 2 - Hollywood Studios (Hollywood and Vine (B/L/D)
    • October 3 - Magic Kingdom ('Ohana (B/D)
    • October 4 - Departure Day
    On the 27th, I would do the Donald Safari Breakfast if you can.
    On the 30th, I would recommend Dinner at Whispering Canyon (located at nearby Wilderness Lodge).
    On the 2nd, try Breakfast or Lunch for the Playhouse Disney characters
    On the 3rd, try breakfast for characters or dinner for a great view and better meal!

    Write me back with more questions, if I can help further. In particular, if you need some counter service recommendations, let me know where, when (as in what meal), and I can come up with some great ones!

    Have a magical vacation!
