    First time coming to Disney with my 5year old son. What are the must do’s for having a great trip and what are the best dining experiences? We are staying just outside of Disney.(10 min drive) June 6-13

    Hello Sara and a warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    I'm so thrilled to know you've planned your 1st ever family visit this June to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort!  I can just imagine how excited your young Mouseketeer must be feeling and for sure you can't miss introducing him to Mickey Mouse and pals whilst dining at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort; this would be such a whimsical way for your dear son to say Hello to the Big Cheese himself and should make for some great photo opportunities too.
    Some more super fun Character dining options for little ones can be found at the Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios with breakfast at Disney Junior Play 'n Dine or lunch or dinner at Minnie's Seasonal Dining; both provide Guests with delicious buffet menus and at breakfast would you believe it? An ice-cream sundae station!
    Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones is such a good idea and becomes as easy as 1.2.3 with the help of this handy Pre-School Parents Guide. When my own children were younger their favourite Disney Theme Park was always and still is the Magic Kingdom Park where there are so many enchanting Attractions for everyone to enjoy 
    Have a great Disney day.
