    Hi! Our family of 5 will be visiting WDW in November to celebrate our 13 wedding anniversary and Thanksgiving. Any recommendations for must-try dining or other advice for these special occasions? We have the Disney Dining plan. Thanks!

    Hi Megan, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First of all, I'd suggest a Fireworks Dessert Party to enjoy the Happily Ever After Fireworks Show even more. When my husband and I watched it, we talked about how it encompasses the journey of a lifetime, from being young and innocent to making friends and building a family to share the journey with. The treats and the comfort of priority viewing might make this experience even more delightful!

    If you are a foodie like me, you will love the amazing food served at Jiko - The Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. One of the best ways to experience it as a family is the Wanyama Safari, an intimate guided safari through the savanna followed by a feast of African-Inspired dishes. The California Grill also serves exquisite food and its brunch is awesome for a resting Sunday between Theme Parks days.

    'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort might also be perfect for your family. Not only because 'Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten, but also because it serves delicious food for dinner with a cool ambiance and offers excellent value for Guests on the Disney Dining Plan.

    Magical Tip: Remember to ask for celebration buttons once you arrive at your Disney Hotel or at a Theme Park. They will surely open many beautiful smiles!

    If you want more advice, Megan, please, stop by so we can help you even further. We'd love to!

    May the magic be with you all,
