    Planning Jan 8-12, with 3 kids, ages 8,8,9. what are the best things to reserve for 180 days out? such as shows, dinner, breakfast etc. thank you

    Hello Melissa!

    I'm so happy to help you with a bit of a "priority list" for your Advanced Dining Reservations!
    If you'd like to write me back directly, letting me know whether you're traveling with little Princesses or Princes, or both, I'll be happy to further tailor some recommendations for you. In the meantime, I'll recommend the top picks for the whole family to enjoy.

    Given your kids ages, here are some of the "must-do" family reservations you'll most likely want to include at the top of your list since they are in high demand:

    ~ 'Ohana for the most fabulous family dinner
    ~ Le Cellier or California Grill for an adult dinner (consider reserving the kids at the Sandcastle Club or Peter Pan Never Land Club to enjoy some time of their own while you enjoy an evening out)
    ~ Chef Mickey's for Character breakfast with Mickey and friends
    ~ Be Our Guest for a family dinner 
    ~ A Fantasmic Dining Package at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano

    Depending whether you're traveling with Princesses or Princes:
    ~ Akershus for Princess Storybook Breakfast or Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast or dinner
    ~ 'Ohana for breakfast with Lilo and Stitch

    If a Dinner Show is appealing to you:
    ~ Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue if you'd like a rootin' tootin', boisterous evening of laughs
    ~ Spirit of Aloha if you'd prefer to be entertained by a story and dancers of the Polynesian Islands

    I hope these suggestions help you to get started on your list Melissa! If you'd like to write me back with more information about the make-up of your family and your kids' favourite characters, I'll be happy to help narrow things down further and provide additional recommendations about experiences or shows you may enjoy.

    Hope to hear from you again soon!
    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you begin planning your trip to Walt Disney World!
