    Hi Kristy!

    It sounds like you've planned just about every detail! Here are a few tips and things to remember for your trip. I hope they help!

    First, my number one tip is to take a look at the park maps before you head off on vacation. Not only will this help build your excitement, but it will also help you pick out what everyone's "must do" attractions are at each park. Make sure you tackle these first thing in the morning - as early as possible. This way, you'll have relieved the stress of "we have to ride Dumbo!" and can enjoy the rest of the day as a bonus - maybe heading back for a second ride or trying a different attraction.

    Second, one transportation tip for your Epcot & Downtown Disney day. Bus transportation does not run directly from the parks to Downtown Disney. If you plan to head directly to your dinner from the park, without a stop at your resort, then I'd suggest exiting Epcot via the International Gateway located between the United Kingdom and France. Walk over to the Beach Club's or Boardwalk's bus transportation area and hop on a bus to Downtown Disney. The second stop at the shopping & entertainment area will bring you closest to Planet Hollywood.

    Last, but not least, for your character meals, be sure to have your camera out and snap pictures AS the characters approach your table. You may catch some candid shots of your kids and characters that are super special.

    Hope you have a wonderful trip! Enjoy!
