    OMG!! We booked our first visit for Aug26-31. I had NO IDEA how overwhelming it would be to organize...I need help w/an itinerary!! We are a fam of 5, staying in POrleansRiv w/5 nights to fill...all boys; 8 (twins) & 11...driving from Tor.Canada..HELP

    Hi, Julie!

    Well you came to the right place for a little help!  You are off to great start with your room at Port Orleans Riverside.  They have nice rooms that will accommodate your family of 5 with the extra bed.  I will give you a sample itinerary, but feel free to modify if you have park hopper tickets or plan to visit a water park.  I've added a table service dining location recommendation.  If you want any table service meals, make sure to book an Advance Dining Reservation. 

    Aug 26:  Arrival day. Check-in, and enjoy the pool.  Hop on the boat to Downtown Disney for a relaxing evening of shopping and have dinner at Wolfgang Puck Express (quick service, no reservations).
    Aug 27:  Epcot (Chefs de France for lunch - they have chicken fingers for the kids!)
    Aug 28:  Magic Kingdom (Crystal Palace, buffet with Pooh and friends)
    Aug 29:  Hollywood Studios (Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater)
    Aug 30: Animal Kingdom (Tusker House, buffet breakfast with your host Donald Duck)
    Aug 21:  Head home - See Ya Real Soon!

    This is a start!  If you need more specifics, let me know, I'd be happy to help.  Add/delete to this itinerary and see where it leads you.  Good luck, and safe travels from Toronto!
