    Hi Kirsten, We are planning a Disney holiday in feb. Help! Can you please suggest a hotel, meal plan and parks to visit. The girls are 9 and 17. They have been to Disney 3 years ago. We will be there feb 15-18. Thanks so much!

    Hi Rachel!

    Thank for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.

    How exciting that you're planning a short trip to Walt Disney World very soon!

    Given the girls' ages, I'd suggest that you'd be most comfortable in a moderate resort, and definitely will gain great benefit by including a Disney Dining Plan with your Magic Your Way Vacation package.

    Consider Disney's Port Orleans Riverside or French Quarter, or a Family Suite at Art of Animation or All-Star Music. These accommodations will provide you with sufficient sleeping space to keep everyone in your travel party happy. The regular Disney Dining Plan will allow you a Quick Service Meal and a Table Service Meal (including Character Dining) per night of resort hotel stay, as well as a snack or treat.

    Including a Park Hopper ticket will allow you the flexibility of visiting multiple Theme Parks in the same day. The girls are likely to enjoy all four parks given their ages. I'd recommend a full day at Magic Kingdom, a partial day at Animal Kingdom followed by some time at Downtown Disney, and a half day at each of Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Rachel!
    If you have additional questions about making dining reservations, or would like recommendations, please don't hesitate to write me back. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
