    Hi Jodie, Thank you for responding so quickly, after choosing and reserving our character dining, what would be the next step in the planning process. I forgot to mention that we are not telling any of the kids that are going until we actually arrive :)

    It's great to hEAR from you again, Susan! We love surprising our kids with trips to Walt Disney World! Since you have started planning your meals, I just wanted to make sure you have chosen a resort for your vacation.That is usually the first thing I decide after choosing a date of course. If you have not done so already, you may want to decide which parks you will be visiting so that you can plan your meals accordingly. I like to plan one table-service meal daily which allows us to take a break from park touring and experience quality time while sitting down together.You will want to decide if you plan to book any Special Experiences for the children during your trip such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or The Pirates League. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a royal salon where young guests are magically transformed into little princesses or knights by their own Fairy Godmother-in-training. At The Pirates League, young guests receive a piratical transformation or can receive a mermaid makeover. Follow the links I have provided to learn more about both of these special experiences available for young guests. Other important factors in your planning process that you may have already decided, but I feel are worth mentioning include whether to purchase the Disney Dining Plan (eligible if you are a guest staying in a Walt Disney World Resort with a Magic Your Way Vacation Package), what type of Magic Your Way Tickets to purchase (Park Hopper option, Non-Expiration Option,etc) and planning an itinerary for your vacation. I am out of room for my answer, but please feel free to write me back if you would like any additional dining recommendations or have any other questions. Best wishes for a Magical trip, Susan!
    Happy Planning,
