    Have pckg with DDP for 4 nights, 5 days, 2 park tickets. Have two kids, 3 and 6. Needing to know if we should go to MK 2 days or MK one and HS one? First time for the boys. Also, some counter service meals you reccomend for both parks?

    Hi, Felicia!  With kids that young, I might be tempted to stretch out the Magic Kingdom for two days.  Kids love to go back and re-do their favorite things, and it may take longer if you let them revisit some of the things they love.  When you stop to see shows, grab something to eat, or to get photographs with the characters, you may find you haven't finished everything on your must do list.  Play it by ear, but you may find a second day at the Magic Kingdom is the way to go.

    As for counter service, my favorite at the Magic Kingdom is Cosmic Ray's.  There is something there for everyone, from burgers and salads to rotisserie chicken and soup.  I know that no matter what we all want, I'll probably find it there.  We also love Columbia Harbor House, where you can get fried shrimp, grilled salmon, and kids favorites like peanut butter and jelly or chicken nuggets. 

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, my girls love Pizza Planet.  Kids can enjoy a personal sized pizza or a small meatball sub, and there are salads, subs, and pizza for the grown ups.  Rosie's All American Cafe is a great choice for burgers.  They have a wonderful fixin's bar, and the kids menu features a power pack lunch of yogurt, carrots, string cheese, goldfish crackers, and a cookie.  That always works for small ones who tend to graze rather than eat a whole meal.

    Have an awesome time!
