    Hi,Love this panel! We are planning our first wdw trip april 2013. Will be staying at the AOA suites for 7n/8d. Traveling w/husband & children ages 11,3, 5.One thing I can not decide on is the DDP. Can you help? And do all characater meals count as 2m

    Hi Mandi,
    You will just love the new Art of Animation Resort suites as they look amazing!  It will be perfect for your family and will give you some extra space.  The Disney Dining Plan is has Quick Service, Table Service, and Deluxe dining options.  If you want to do some Character Dining, the regular Dining Plan would be a great option.  This includes one Table Service meal, one Quick Service Meal, one snack and a mug refillable at your resort.  If you decide on the Disney Dining Plan, I would take advantage of making Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your vacation.  There are several Character Dining meals that only take one Table Service credit.  The link above will give you the full list, however, I would love to suggest some of my favorites.  My family loves Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian.  You can meet Cinderella and Prince Charming and some of their friends.  A Buffet with Character at The Crystal Palace is a wonderful buffet with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet. Chip 'N' Dale's Harvest Feast at the Garden Grill at Epcot is a fun restaurant.  You get to see Mickey, Pluto, and of course, Chip and Dale while eating in this revolving restaurant.  Finally, at Animal Kingdom, I would recommend Donald's Dining Safari at Tusker House Restaurant.  You will see Donald, Goofy, and MIckey as well as have a fantastic breakfast or lunch.  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further, Mandi.  Have a magical vacation!
