    We are planning a trip leaving October 11-18. We have kids ranging from 2 -2 year old girls, 2 boys age 8, 2- 10 year old girls and one boy who is 13. What are the best character meals or expierences and what do you recommend for how many character meals?

    Hi Robbin!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    I'm so glad to see that you're planning in advance for your fall vacation. You'll want to reserve Character Dining experiences as far out as you can, to ensure that you are able to secure the dining time that works best for your family, at the location(s) you're after. Be sure to make your dining reservations online or by phone as soon as you reach that magical 180-day mark!

    1900 Park Fare's Supercalifragilistic Breakfast provides something for everyone in your group. The boys will enjoy a laugh over The Mad Hatter's crazy antics at your table, while the girls will enjoy the company of Mary Poppins and Alice.

    A classic for all is Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort. With Mickey and friends, the monorail zooming through the resort overhead, and an expansive buffet to please all tastes, you just can't go wrong here! This meal is available at breakfast, lunch and dinner times, making it an easy meal to fit into any schedule.

    Finally, to please the Princesses in your travel party, 2 top recommendations come to mind. Start your day at Epcot with breakfast at Akershus for Princess Storybook Dining. Though available all three meals of the day, I find breakfast to be the most child-friendly menu here. Another great 'Princess' option is back over at 1900 Park Fare for Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner.

    Please visit me again if you have additional questions Robbin. I'd love to hear back from you!
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
