    What reservation-only shows/meals/events do you love most? We've booked 4 nights at Animal Kingdom Jambo, next winter, with our kids (boy 4, girl 6). Beyond "royal breakfast," I'm clueless: Anything at Polynesian? Fort Wilderness? If you could pi

    Hi Bess!

    Congratulations on your 1st vacation to Walt Disney World! There are many wonderful things to see and do, it's hard to pick just a few!One of my favorite character meals is the Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at Ohana located in the Polynesian resort.This is the only meal where you will find this mischievous character,you might also see Mickey and Pluto as well.The breakfast is served family style and there is lots of yummy food for everyone.Chef Mickey's is also another favorite character meal for my family, serving breakfast and dinner buffet,it always tops our list for favorite character meals.The added benefit of being located in the Contemporary Resort makes traveling to the Magic Kingdom a snap.

    Fort Wilderness is home to a fantastic dinner show Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue, this is an interactive show that is fun for the entire family.Fort Wilderness also is home to another favorite and the best part is that you do not need reservations.Chip 'n Dale Campfire Sing-a-long is a fun evening of singing, roasting marshmallows, getting a little one on one time with this furry duo and even a Disney movie.

    As if the 4 parks didn't keep you buys enough, there are lots of activities outside of the parks that are definitely worth checking out.I highly recommend Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage held nightly(weather permitting).Before the voyage you will be given an opportunity for some photo time with Captain Hood and Mr. Smee, plus snacks will be made available at this time.Then it's off for a special viewing of Wishes from one of the best spots to watch, 7 Seas Lagoon.The evening will end with one more surprise guest, which I'm not going to tell.

    Reservations are strongly recommended, most of these will book up months in advance, I highly recommend reserving your dining and other activities exactly 180 days from your date of arrival.If you have anymore questions, please feel free to ask!

    Best Wishes!
