    Doug, Ok so here is what we are doing. We have a cousin who is going to invite us down to Flordia to stay at her beach house. We are flying down to Florida and we are leaving at 6 AM. We are taking the magical express. P.S. Looking for eating ideas too.

    OK, let's start with your surprise. If you want your niece really surprised that she is headed to Walt Disney World, I would hold out right until you get to the airport in Orlando. When you get off the plane and start heading to the area where you are to get on the Magical Express bus, that is a great time to spring it on her. I would hand her the directions to the Magical Express check-in area and ask her to lead the way. Maybe include a small stuffed doll of her favorite Disney character. It doesn't have to be a big production. It is more fun to watch it come to her!

    As for dining, I have a several favorites, but here are a few in the parks, and a few in the resorts as well;

    Epcot: Biergarten
    Animal Kingdom: Donald's Safari Breakfast
    Hollywood Studios: 50's Prime Time Cafe
    Wilderness Lodge: Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Contemporary: Chef Mickey's

    Feel free to ask for more help!

    Have a magical vacation!
