    My husband and I are bringing our kids to Disney for the first time Dec 8-14th staying at WL. My DS is 6, DD is 2.5. Can you help us with an itinerary of what are must dos/restaurants you recc.etc? Have Dining Plus plan. Chef Mickeys? Backyard BBQ/Hoopdedo

    Hi, Kerri!

    December is my absolute favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World.  All the holiday merriment is in full swing, the crowds are lower, and the temperatures comfortable.  Perfect!

    With such a nice long vacation, you will have time to visit all the theme parks.  Here is a list of my dining suggestions at each park:  Magic Kingdom - Crystal Palace, Epcot - Garden Grill, Animal Kingdom - Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House, and Hollywood Studios - 50's Prime Time Cafe.  These are all family friendly for your whole family to enjoy.

    At your own resort, you will want to dine at Whispering Canyon Cafe for dinner.  So much fun for your entire family, and great food.  Make sure you are very hungry for this one! 

    Chef Mickey's will be a huge hit with your kids at the Contemporary.  This is a great one to do on your first night.  So much fun to start a vacation off with Mickey and his pals!  Hoop Dee Doo Revue is also a super fun evening and just a quick boat ride from your resort. 

    You will have plenty of time for parks, so schedule in a day for each, and maybe 2 days for Magic Kingdom.  Allow time to relax at your pool or for shopping at Downtown Disney.   Enjoy your vacation in Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
