    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!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
