    My 4 kids (dds 12,10,8 & ds5), my DH, my mom, and I will be visiting WDW 11/7-11/15. My dad just passed away and my mom wants to take us. I'd love an itinerary...parks, rests (free DDP). We're staying @ POFR. We'll be celebrating my mom's bday, too.


    So sorry about your Dad, but this could well be a great way for you all to enjoy each other's company, and celebrate his life! Here is where I would go, as a general rule, with a daily table service and counter service meal recommended. These may not exactly match your interests, so review, and send me follow-up questions, please!

    • November 7 - Arrival Day
    • November 8 - Magic Kingdom
      • Table: Chef Mickey's
      • Counter: Pecos Bills
    • November 9 - Hollywood Studios
      • Table: 50's Prime Time Cafe
      • Counter: Sunset Ranch Market
    • November 10 - Epcot
      • Table: Restaurant Akershus
      • Counter: Tangierine Cafe
    • November 11 - Animal Kingdom
      • Table: Tusker House
      • Counter: Flame Tree BBQ
    • November 12 - Magic Kingdom
      • Table: Cinderella Table
      • Counter: Casey's
    • November 13 - Epcot
      • Table: Rose & Crown
      • Counter: Sunshine Season
    • November 14 - Hollywood Studios
      • Table: Whispering Canyon Cafe (at Wilderness Lodge)
    • November 15 - Magic Kingdom

    So send me back the itinerary you end up with, and what individual meal suggestions you might need, including where you will be, what your preferences are, and whether you need table or counter service.

    And let me know if there are any other out-of-the-norm recommendations I can offer!

    Have a magical vacation!
