    Hello! So we are a family of 4: infant + 4 year old + 2 adults going to WDW for the 1st time! What character/dining experiences are a must??? So far i have Hollywood Vine and Chef Mickey. Is there a show that's a must or a resturant that's a must?

    Hello, Marcy!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I love hearing from guests who are planning to visit Walt Disney World for the very first time!  You and your family must be thrilled knowing that you are about to experience what the MAGIC is all about.  

    You have already selected two great dining experiences.  You will LOVE them both!  Now of course I have some other favorites.  

    The Crystal Palace, located inside the Magic Kingdom, is another fantastic place to dine.  Winnie the Pooh and Friends will delight your little ones as you dine on a tasty buffet.  

    The Garden Grill, located in Epcot, is a slow rotating restaurant.  Yes!  It is a rotating restaurant!  Here, you can experience Chip 'n Dale's Harvest Feast (You will meet them!) and welcome other characters such as Mickey Mouse and Pluto.  

    If you are a fan of LILO & Stitch, you will want to join them at Disney's Polynesian Resort.  'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo & Stitch is a MAGICAL way to begin your day! Mickey and Pluto have been known to drop by!  

    1900 Park Fare, located inside Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, is another favorite of mine.  Their Supercalifragilistic Breakfast is a great way to meet characters such as Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Eeyore, Tigger, The Mad Hatter and Winnie the Pooh.

    I hope these help as you continue planning for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation.  May your vacation be MAGICAL!
