    Hello, My family and I will be traveling to Disney on 1/6/13 - 1/11/13 and it is our first visit. We have a 4yr old girl and the dining plus package. We would love any suggested itineraries of parks,attractions,shows,and places to eat to use as a guide

    Hi Donna! I will try to answer as much as I can in the short space I have.

    There are great things to see and do in each park so I suggest at least one day in each to get the full experience. You can pick a day when the parks stay open for Extra Magic Hours but are a bit more crowded or head to them during regular hours for less crowds. Check the park calendars at and make your decisions. I will outline some special things to see and do and dining for each park below:

    Epcot: Imagination, Turtle Talk with Crush and Nemo ride, Spaceship Earth, the character meet and greet, Kidcot spots in all countries. Dining-Japan, Biergarten, and Via Napoli in Italy.
    Best princess experience for dining is actually here too at Norway, Akershus.

    Animal Kingdom: Lion King, Safari, Rafiki's Planet Watch, Flights of Wonder, the walking trails, Boneyard. Dining-Flametree Barbecue, Tusker House, Pizzafari

    Hollywood Studios: Disney Junior, Toy Story Mania, Muppet Vision, Little Mermaid, Honey I Shrunk play area, Dining-Sci Fi Dine In Theater, Primetime Cafe, Mamma Melrose

    Magic Kingdom: Basically just about all the attractions are to be considered. Dining-Tonys, Columbia House, Liberty Tree Tavern, Casey's, Plaza. 
    Don't miss the parades with one of my favorites being the Move It Shake It Celebrate It Street Party three times a day. Wishes fireworks at night is amazing as well as the Electric Light Parade. Lots of great character meet and greets are in this park as well.

    Don't hesitate to keep asking questions...we are happy to help but have limited space for each one.
