    Family has expanded. 5th trip. 3 adults 6 kids (10,8,4,2,1,1,) One 1 year is blind, any do's or don'ts this trip? Character meals planned. Still need some table service. Have Cape May, O'hana, Coral Reef, Teppan edo, Boma, Trex, Rain Forest, any ideas?

    Wow Lisa, what a wonderful family you have and such a treat to them all that you will be making your fifth trip to Walt Disney World!

    As far as attractions go the only suggestion for you is to consider avoiding some of the ones that might have loud noises inside that might affect the one year old who is blind. Startling one that is so young might be more traumatic then an older child who would understand.  You can do rider swap on these rides and you can consider getting a Guest Assistance Card at each park's Guest Relations to help with this. They will be glad to go over all the attractions in the park to help you decide which might be good to avoid or to do the swap with.

    Your meal planning sounds great with some super Advanced Dining Reservations already in place.  If the Cape May meal is not the character meal then you might consider adding one character dining experience. Understand that T-Rex and Rain Forest are similar concept restaurants with one having the dinosaurs. These dinosaurs are large and can be intimidating to young children so be cautious and discuss this with them before going in for your meal. My grandson was not too happy when he was three but I hadn't prepared him for what we were going to see as I didn't know myself.

    Another Epcot location that my family loves is Via Napoli where you can find the BEST pizza on property as well as other great Italian fare. Kids love their spaghetti and pasta so its a popular family destination. 50's Primetime Cafe in the Hollywood Studios is a fun location and very relaxed. So relaxed you just might be yelled at for putting your elbows on the table!

    Love that you are spreading the dining around so you are in every part of the property. You have done well and I can tell you are a seasoned Disney traveler!
