    First trip (last minute) w/5 and 7 yr old sons. Is it necessary to get breakfast & lunch reservations and if so suggestions? Never got into traditional Disney characters but liked pixar ones in terms of character dining. Also what are the must do rid

    I take 'fast trips' with my little girls to the parks all the time. It's a wonderful quick vacation that usually creates some great memories. As for the necessity of making reservation for character dining, while i would definitely suggest it, it can sometimes be easy to get a table to meet some of your families favorite Disney friends. The best place to start is to call (407) WDW-DINE and speak to the helpful and friendly guest services folks to see where they can accommodate your family for a fun meal. As for your options, there is a wide variety of characters at the meals so that should be fun to choose. As for must do rides, I always begin at the Magic Kingdom and start at the classic adventure that is the Jungle Cruise. From there you can explore all the lands and make it a magical vacation. Have a blast.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
