    My family (party of 10) is planning to visit Disney from November 4th through 9th with 4 boys ages 10, 8, 4, 2. Could you offer recommendations for special character meals and events? Do you assist with an itinerary that would include parks events meals

    Hi Susan!

    I am tickled pink that you are visiting Walt Disney World with your family in November! This is going to be a trip you will all remember for a lifetime! I would love to make recommendations for special character meals and events that your entire family will love! 

    You can make your advanced dining reservations 60 days in advance. Since you are visiting on November 4, you can begin making your dining reservations on Monday, September 5. There are so many wonderful dining options at Walt Disney World!

    This summer, the Hoop-Dee-Do Musical Revue is returning! Your boys will love this dinner show with music, dancing, and comedy. Another great aspect of this show is the all-you-care-to-eat chicken, ribs, and shortcake! 

    Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a must-do as well. The kiddos can meet the fab five: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy! This restaurant is also great for kids because they love the characters and the menu is filled with kids' favorites.

    Garden Grill at EPCOT is another favorite because you can dine with Chip and Dale. This all-you-care-to-eat menu has wonderful offerings and the atmosphere is great! 

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Hollywood & Vine is a wonderful option. The younger kids will love the Disney Junior Play n' Dine breakfast. Both the younger and older kids will adore Minnie’s Seasonal Dining for lunch or dinner.

    Since you are coming in November, you will get to enjoy the beginnings of the holiday decorations throughout the parks and resorts. Your kids will love the holiday cookie stroll at EPCOT! They can try cookies from around the World Showcase and after purchasing five cookies, you will get a special cookie for free.

    While announcements have not been made for the 2022 holiday season, typically there are special parades, fireworks, and treats this time of year. You can review the Disney Very Merriest After Hours for the events that were held last year to get an idea of what may be coming soon! 

    If you would like to have a personalized planning experience with an itinerary that includes parks, meals, special events, and tours, you can leverage Disney Signature Services. This service is available for those who book a Disney Private VIP Tour. 

    You can also come back to planDisney and we can help you with recommending additional restaurants, events, resorts, and experiences! We are here to make your trip absolutely magical!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
