    Hi, my family (kids ages 10, 8, & will turn 5 at Disney) are planning our first visit in March 2015. We have 3 day hopper passes and will stay at Caribbean beach while there. Looking for any recommendations as far as dining, & things to NOT miss

    Welcome Shandele!

    I bet you and your family are getting super excited about your upcoming first visit. Congratulations! Spring at Walt Disney World Resort is not only beautiful, but filled with lots of fun and excitement. There is plenty to keep you busy, but don't feel bad if you don't experience it all. There is always more to look forward to on your next visit. First, my family loves Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and the kids definitely adore spending time at the Fuentes del Morro pool. If you have time, I suggest spending at least a couple of hours splashing around. With only three days, I would probably plan the first full day at Magic Kingdom Park and then break the other two days into Park Hopping days. One morning I would suggest to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park followed by an evening at Epcot and for the last, I would choose to begin our day at Disney's Hollywood Studios and spend the afternoon at whichever park your family wants to return to. I definitely would plan at least one Character Dining Experience. One of my family's favorites is Chip 'n Dale's Harvest Feast at the Garden Grill restaurant. Also, make sure you look through and make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your arrival. We let each of our kiddos pick something they think looks like fun.
    If there is anything else I may assist you with, or further recommend, please send me another question. Have a wonderful vacation, Shandele!

    Magical Wishes,
