    On Sat 8/28 our last full day we plan to use it to relax around Wilderness Lodge and do some shopping and dining in Downtown Disney. With 6 adults and 4 kids how long should we set aside for DD and what is the best dining plan restaurant to choose there?

    Hi James!

    Now that's a tough question! The answer is going to be "How much shopping do you want to do?"!! Downtown Disney is home to quite a few unique shopping experiences and I can easily spend an entire day there! If you can spare it, and would like to dine at Downtown Disney, I'd suggest spending at least 4 or 5 hours there!

    Some of the unique shopping offerings you might want to budget some extra time for are Trend-D which features some trendier items for, mostly, the girls in your party. Ridemakerz, where you can make your own remote control car. Once Upon a Toy which really can't be missed!

    Of course, the World of Disney, one of the largest Disney stores, is located there as well. AND, my son's favorite place: the Lego Store!

    I'm sure I could list even more, but I think you get the idea!!

    As far as dining goes, there are lots of options here too! For snack credits, be sure to visit Goofy's Candy Co. While the design your own treats aren't on the dining plan any longer they are fun to check out! There are two great options for counter service restaurants: Earl of Sandwich and Wolfgang Puck Express. You can't go wrong with either choice! And, finally, for table service meal, my personal favorite is Raglan Road.

    Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
