    PARTY OF 12! HELP! Our 1st family vacation to Disney World March 6-13! Since I am the planner...wondering what restaurants to reserve (Dining Plan) with 6 kids (2-14 yrs.) & 6 adults? Also, should we stick to one park per day!? Ideas? Thanks.

    Hey Shannon!

    No need to fret- Mom's Panel to the rescue!! I will give you a few suggestions on restaurants.  As far as restaurants, there are so many great ones from which to choose. How does dinner and a V.I.P. seat for Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios sound? Try Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. This will kill two birds with one stone. You will be able to enjoy a wonderful Italian dinner and then have special seating to walk right into Fantasmic! without having to wait in line. You may use the Disney Dining Plan for this dining experience. When you make reservations, the Cast Member will request a credit card to hold the reservation. You will NOT be charged unless you are a no show or you do not cancel within 48 hours. Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue is a great family experience. This is a popular dinner show at Fort Wilderness Resort. The food is excellent and the show is very funny, great for the whole family. Reservation policy is same as above but this show requires 2 table services per person from your dining plan.  As far as the the parks, I suggest you start out by going to one park each day, and take the time to try one of the waterparks as well. If you have the Park Hopper Option on your tickets, double back and take in some shopping and some of your favorites and a few missed attractions on the extra days. I hope this helps a little. Keep up the planning, and keep the questions coming. We will help!
