    First time for the whole family! We are arriving October 13- leaving Oct 19. Staying at Pop w/ a quick service dining plan. Any advice for park days/ quick service meals? We have 5 day park passes (no hopper or water park). Also traveling with a 10yr girl.

    Hi Daniel!

    It's so exciting to hear that your family is headed off on their first Walt Disney World vacation!  With just a few short weeks to go, I bet there is a lot of excitement happening in your house right now.I would highly recommend attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party held on select nights in the Magic Kingdom.  It's a fun evening of delicious treats, villainous shows and a chance to meet some 
    characters not normally seen in the parks.

    Based on your dates, here is the parks I recommend for each day of your vacation:
    October 14th Epcot 9am-9pm
    October 15th Magic Kingdom 9am-9pm
    October 16th Hollywood Studios 9am-7:30pm
    October 17th Animal Kingdom 9am-5pm
    October 18th Magic Kingdom 9am-7pm** Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is taking place that evening, hence the 7pm closing time.

    In Magic Kingdom I recommend Columbia Harbor House and Be Our Guest (only quick-service for lunch).One of my favorite quick-service restaurants is over in Epcot, Sunshine Seasons.  Located in the Land Pavilion you will find several options with many more choices than your standard cheeseburger.I can't pass up the chance to nibble on Fish and Chips, Yorkshire County Fish Shop is another great choice.Make sure to save your snack credits for World Showcase at Epcot, some of the best snacks at Walt Disney World can be found here!

    At Hollywood Studios the cupcakes reigns supreme!  Starring Rolls Cafe has delicious sandwiches and the cupcakes are AMAZING!  Backlot Express and ABC Commissary are also good options at Hollywood Studios.  Over at Animal Kingdom you will find Restaurantosaurus,Yak and Yeti Cafe and Flame Tree Barbecue which are all great choices.

    I hope this helps, Daniel!  Please visit us again if you have anymore questions or need any advice.

    Best Wishes!
