    Hi Paulette!

    Wow!  A lot has changed in the last 20 years at Walt Disney World.  There are more theme parks, places to stay, rides and shows, and restaurants since your last visit.  A 6 year old boy will normally love the Magic Kingdom.  When my oldest son was 6, he loved Epcot as his favorite part (but just the Future World portion of Epcot); when my youngest son was 6, he loved Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You really can't go wrong with any of the theme parks at Walt Disney World, but I definitely would plan on spending a lot of time in the Magic Kingdom.

    I'm glad to hear you made some Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs).  ADRs are critical for all of the Table Service restaurants you want to visit at Walt Disney World.  I definitely recommend using up all of your Disney Dining Plan meal credits!  With regards to Mickey's Backyard BBQ, it is available via a Disney Dining Plan, but it counts as two meal credits. 

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
