    Spending 12/26-12/30 for our first time Disney vacation, staying in POR. I am a little overwhelmed trying to coordinate ADRs and plans for park days. Two girls (2 & 5), any rec. on how much time in each park and what not to miss?

    My family just visited Walt Disney World in September for 4 days and we had a fantastic vacation! Port Orleans Riverside is one of the prettiest places in all of the World, you all are going to enjoy your stay there. In that you are only there for 4 days let me tell you that the best thing is to know you will not have time to experience everything. There is just so much magic to see and do! On a four day trip I would make a point of visiting all of the parks for one day. I would select maybe one or two ADR's and leave the rest to counter service or walk up. This way you will not have to worry about being somewhere at a certain time and can instead just relax and enjoy all there is to see and do. There will be more then enough meal options in the parks, on the Boardwalk and at the resorts to suit your needs. My girls were your kids ages when we visited for the first time. If they like princesses then I would suggest a princess lunch at the Akershus House in Epcot. Here they can meet so many of the lovely Disney princesses who are so sweet and interact really well with the children (adults too!). We took some lovely pictures that we cherish and I am sure you will too. I hope this assists you in making this the best vacation ever. I am happy to answer any other questions you might have so feel free to ask. I will see you at the parks.
