    Hi we will enjoy our first WDW vacation Sept 22-28. Kids are 5 and 6. We would love any itinerary feedback. Also, we do have the basic dining plan and have no idea which places would be good for table services meals! We're staying at Port Orleans. Thanks!


    I am going to be there at the SAME TIME for the Disney Parks Moms Panel Reunion! It is a great time of year to visit, and you will enjoy some of the lightest crowds of the year!

    Here is where I would go, and I will assume park time on both your arrival and departure days. I also recommend 1 table service meal per day, but on the first and last days I pick ones outside of parks, in case you don't have time to hit a park! Let me know when you read this what tweaks you want (swapping a dinner recommendation for a breakfast one, etc.)

    September 22 - Magic Kingdom (evening Extra Magic Hours)
    Dinner at Chef Mickey's

    September 23 - Animal Kingdom (morning Extra Magic Hours)
    Breakfast at Tusker House

    September 24 - Hollywood Studios
    Dinner at 50s Prime Time Cafe

    September 25 - Epcot (evening Extra Magic Hours)
    Dinner at Biergarten, Via Napoli, Chefs de France, or Rose & Crown

    September 26 - Magic Kingdom (morning Extra Magic Hours)
    Dinner at Be Our Guest

    September 27 - Magic Kingdom
    Dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe or 'Ohana

    September 28 - Magic Kingdom
    Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare

    On the 23rd, make sure you have evening plans. I would suggest Downtown Disney, since it is just a boat ride away from your resort!

    This is just a start. Let me know more about what your kids like, and I can plan further! Also, maybe consider an adults night out, with the kids in one of the Child Activity Centers? Glad to make recommendations, just write me back with what you like!

    Have a magical vacation!
