    I'm so excited to be visiting WDW from 2/11-16/ 12 we will be arriving noon time on the 11th and departing 7 pm on the 16th. Was just wondering what days you would recommend doing each park and what restaurants are best. I will be with my BF. We are 22.THX

    Hi, Amanda!  Which parks to do which days is a personal preference.  If you are staying on Walt Disney World property and want to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, schedule your days around which park is offering those hours.  You'll find the schedule by visiting PARK CALENDARS at the Walt Disney World website.  If you are staying off property, you might want to avoid going to the park that has the extra magic hours, as those parks can be busier.

    There are websites, like, that offer a calendar indicating what a crowd level may be like.  This information is based on historical data, but it can be a good way to guess which parks may have the lightest crowds.

    Restaurants are my thing!!  What type of food do you like to eat?  What kinds of experiences are you looking for?  For something fun, check out a character meal - really! They're not just for kids, and it's a great way to get photos of you and your own Prince Charming with some of your favorite characters.  I personally love the Crystal Palace, which usually features characters from Winnie the Pooh, and breakfast at 'Ohana, where you'll find a very Hawaiian theme with your character meal.  

    If you're looking for something romantic, check out the California Grill at the Contemporary, with views that are amazing.  You might also snag a table at La Hacienda de San Angel at EPCOT, where you may see the Illuminations show in the evening.  

    For something a bit more grown up fun, check out some of the great restaurants at Downtown Disney.  I love Raglan Road (love the Irish music!) and Bongo's Cuban Cafe.  You might also want to check out Paradiso 37, a unique dining experience based on street foods.  Yummy!
