    PLS HELP! 1st trip to WDW Dec 12-17 4 adult and 4, 3yr olds (3girls 1boy). Arriving 5pm of the 12, staying at the POP. We'd like to do 1 park per day with Character dining at park or a resort. Need help with itinerary & dining options-Bday on 12th THAN

    Hi Paul!  It sounds like a wonderful holiday trip you are planning for your special family!

    I would suggest you plan on one park a day for touring and experiencing the attractions and entertainment.  As the time gets closer you can see what parks will have the Extra Magic Hours on the days of your vacation and consider returning to those parks for the evening hours when it isn't so crowded.

    Also be aware you can also purchase tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.  This is a special event held throughout the holiday season and the parade is amazing as well as the fireworks.  Just seeing the castle lit up at night will make magic in your minds forever!  You can purchase these tickets by calling 407-934-7639.

    The following are some of my favorite character dining spots at the parks and resorts.
    Magic Kingdom-Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and Friends
    Hollywood Studios-Prime Time or Sci Fi to me are better spots then any character dining here
    Animal Kingdom-Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House
    EPCOT-Garden Grille
    Contemporary-Chef Mickey
    Beach Club-Cape May breakfast
    Fort Wilderness-Mickey's Backyard Barbecue

    Since you arrive late on the 12th try to pick a park that is possibly open late with extra hours....the birthday child gets in free on their birthday.
