    Hey Doug, Love the Panel!! 1st trip Oct 3-8th 2010, with DH, DS11 and DD 7. We have 5 Day w/PH. I was wondering if you could help me decide which parks, for the least crowded days. We also have Dining plan, no reservations yet, any suggestions? Thanks!


    Hey, I am going to be there at the same time!

    So point one to remember is that this is the first week of the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, so be prepared for larger crowds there, especially on the weekends. Not so bad that you shouldn't go, but worth keeping in mind.

    So here is where I would go;

    • October 3 - Arrival Day
    Dinner: (Table): Whispering Canyon Cafe

    • October 4 - Magic Kingdom (all day)
    Lunch (Quick): Pecos Bills
    Dinner (Table): 'Ohana

    • October 5 - Hollywood Studios (all day)
    Lunch (Quick): Sunset Ranch Market
    Table (Table): 50s Prime Time Cafe

    • October 6 - Animal Kingdom (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    Lunch (Quick): Flame Tree BBQ
    Dinner (Table): Biergarten

    • October 7 - Magic Kingdom (AM) / Epcot (PM)
    Lunch (Quick): Snacks at Food and Wine Festival
    Dinner (Table): Rose and Crown

    • October 8 - Magic Kingdom (until departure)
    Lunch (Quick): Columbia Harbor House

    I have included one counter service lunch and one table service dinner per day, though there are tons of other great locations, so review these places and let me know if you need alternative suggestions!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
