    I am planning a half day at DTD. I need suggestions for what to do. 2 adults, have PH but not the "more" will have DDP. Is half day enough time? Did not see any downtown last trip.

    Hi, Ann!   I am a huge fan of Downtown Disney.   We always spend at least half a day visiting the shops and restaurants and even seeing a movie to escape if there is rain or to get out of the heat!

    Some of my Downtown Disney favorites:

    -Wolfgang Puck Express has great food, and can be used as one of your counter service meals on your meal plan.  Delicious salads, pizza, and pasta dishes.
    -La Nouba is an amazing Cirque du Soleil show with 2 shows each evening at 6pm and 9pm.
    -Characters in Flight is a helium balloon ride that takes you 400 feet into the air giving you breathtaking views of the entire Walt Disney World Resort.
    -World of Disney store is just huge and has so many Disney goodies!   Bring your Disney Visa for a discount (see store for details.)
    -Fulton's Crab House is nice for a seafood dinner
    -Treat yourself to Ghiradelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop.   Need I say more here?!
    -Just relax!  Sit lake side and watch the boats and activity on Village Lake!

    I would plan on setting aside half a day for Downtown Disney, and if you find there is more to explore, stop back later in your vacation!   This is a great place to visit during your travel days since there is no admission cost and you can stay as short or as long as you want.     I hope you have a super time!

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!
