    We are planning a vacation this year to Disney. It will be a first for all of us. Our boys are 8 & 10. We plan on getting a dining package with character meals included. What is the best character meals for my boys age and the best things/parks to visi

    Hello, fellow Tennessean Stephanie! I asked my 11 year-old son, and he (and I) have three recommendations for you and your family.  At a resort, we suggest Chef Mickey's. It is found at Disney's Contemporary Resort. At Epcot, check out the Garden Grill Restaurant.  At Animal Kingdom, he likes Tusker House Restaurant


    My son loves Epcot the most.  His two favorite rides (Soarin' and Test Track) are there.  He also loves trying all the different foods in the countries' pavilions.  Disney's Hollywood Studios is his second favorite with the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and the Lights! Motors! Action! Stunt Show.  Star Tours and Toy Story Mania are also big draws there.  He still loves the classics at Magic Kingdom like Pirates of the Caribbean and Big Thunder Mountain.  Animal Kingdom is his least favorite park, but the Kilimanjaro Safari and Kali River Rapids are big hits.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
