    We are planning a trip in Nov. 2014. My wife and I have two girls. There ages are two and four. What do you think is the best times to make dinner reservations at character meals? I would prefer later, but I don't know if that is wise with my daughters

    Hi Jared!   Visiting Walt Disney World in November is so wonderful.   The weather will be perfect, and the parks start dressing in their holiday finest.   I know you and your family are going to love it. 

    Character dining is so much fun, and a must-do for my family on each vacation.   I have two young sons who are 3 and 4 years-old, to see their eyes light up when their Disney favorites greet us just warms my heart.    I always tell parents to try and keep your children on the same schedule for eating, and sleeping that you would at home.   If you normally eat dinner around 7 PM try to book your meals for that same time.   Character interaction is going to be wonderful no matter what time you eat, early or late.  I wouldn't want your daughters to be sleepy and miss meeting some of their most loved fairy-tale friends.  

    Walt Disney World has a great site for families traveling with preschoolers,  you can find information about which rides would be best for your girls, and they even have special offers for parties that include the smallest of mouseketeers.   

    Jared, if you need any other assistance please let any of us here at The Disney Parks Moms Panel know.  

    Have a Magical Day,
