    Hi Doug. We are going to WDW October 10-15 with 2 kids, ages 11-12. We are staying off resort and wondering what days we should go to which parks. Also on a budget and need to know of good quick service dining ideas. Already purchased Park Hopper tics. Thx


    Here is where I would go;

    • October 10 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Hollywood Studios (PM)
    • October 11 - Epcot (all day)
    • October 12 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    • October 13 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    • October 14 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Magic Kingdom (PM)
    • October 15 - Optional park day
    If you have time for a park on the 15th, I would leave it open and let your kids pick between the four parks (primarily Epcot and Hollywood Studios). That let's them know that they are part of the vacation too, and let's them hit what they are dying to do one last time before the end of the vacation!

    As for quick service dining, here are a few per park that I recommend;

    Magic Kingdom
    Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
    Columbia Harbor House
    Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe


    Tangierine Cafe
    Boulangerie Patisserie
    Sunshine Seasons Food Fair

    Hollywood Studios
    The Restaurants of Sunset Boulevard
    ABC Commissary

    Animal Kingdom
    Flame Tree BBQ
    Yak and Yeti Counter Service

    Write back if I can help more!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
