    I am planning family vacation with my wife and 2 sets of twins (3 girls 1 boy) ages 5 and 2.5 we are looking for the best dining plan, resort location, and want to plan a couple character experiences.

    Welcome you to planDisney, Amber!

    I am happy to hear that you are planning to give your Mouseketeers the gift of magic! With so much for little ones to see and do at the Walt Disney World Resort, get ready to make memories you will treasure forever.

    You will love to Be Our Guest! I highly recommend booking a family suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. They are beautifully themed after classics like The Lion King, Finding Nemo, and Cars, can accommodate up to 6 Guests, feature a kitchenette equipped with a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, and offer two bathrooms – I consider this amazing while traveling with more than 2 kids. I really appreciate that there is a separate room, so while some take a nap, others can stay in the other room watching TV and preparing snacks in the kitchenette. What I also love about Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is the Big Blue Pool, the delicious Landscape of Flavors food court, and being able to use the Disney Skyliner to travel to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I also suggest checking accommodations at Deluxe Villas.

    For assistance booking your vacation package, please call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936 or your travel professional. Please note that at this time, Disney Dining Plans cannot be added to reservations, so I suggest checking back for more information as you get closer to your travel dates. For character experiences, I would like to share this great answer provided by my fellow panelist Aena, where she gives great tips and highlights character dining opportunities that are currently available. If you decide to stay at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, I recommend making breakfast reservations at Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. Their food is absolutely delicious and Disney’s Riviera Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are connected via the Disney Skyliner, so you can conveniently travel between destinations with your Mouseketeers.
    April is a great time of the year to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth! Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom when you visit, and your family will marvel at the topiaries shaped like beloved Disney characters, sample fresh flavors offered by exclusive Outdoor Kitchens, and enjoy exhibits and gardens specially designed for kids. During your stay, you will also have the chance to visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, scheduled to reopen on March 07, 2021. The Disney Parks Blog has recently published seven reasons why we should be excited to splash into action at this water park again, so if your kids love playing in the water I recommend saving a day to visit it.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Amber. Come back real soon if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help.
