    Our families first trip to Disney. Me, the wife, 4 yr old and 2.5 yr old boys arriving afternoon of 4/27 and leaving morning of 5/2. Does the meal plan make sense if we are staying at Swan? Still unsure if we do 4 days at each park or not. thanks

    Congratulations on your first Walt DIsney World vacation, Matt!  I personally love visiting the "Most Magical Place on Earth" in the Spring! Unfortunately, guests staying at the Walt DIsney World Swan are not eligible for the DIsney DIning Plan since it is not a Disney owned and operated resort. As a mom of four children, I can honestly say based on my own personal experience that visiting the parks on three consecutive days with "little ones" can be very tiring. If you have your heart set on spending four days in the parks, then I would highly recommend going back to your resort for a midday break or nap each day. When my children were toddlers, we found it best to arrive at park opening and then go back to the resort for a much needed nap in the early afternoon. We would then return to the park in the early evening to enjoy the nighttime activities. I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. I would love to assist you in planning a magical first trip, Matt!
    Happy Planning,
