    Started making decisions for our Feb. 2013 trip (procrastinator, I know!) We're staying at Wilderness Lodge and have picked dining package. Now I need advice on what to do. 4 adults and a Toy Story/Cars/Mickey obsessed 2 yr old, only a 4 day visit, thx!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question, Megan! How exciting that you are planning a Walt Disney World Vacation for February! My family thoroughly enjoyed a fun and relaxing stay at DIsney's Wilderness Lodge two weeks ago!  If you have not done so already, I would recommend booking Advanced Dining Reservations for your table-service meals. Guests may begin making Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. I would definitely recommend booking a Character Dining Experience so that your "little one" will be greeted table side by several Disney Characters while you all enjoy a delicious meal. Our family favorites include Chef Mickey's located in Disney's Contemporary Resort featuring the "Fab 5" and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast located in Disney's Polynesian Resort which features Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch. I would also start planning an itinerary for your vacation by deciding which parks you want to visit and on which days. I would most definitely suggest Magic Kingdom Park which offers so many attractions and shows designed for the young and young at heart!  Because your "little one" is a huge fan of "Toy Story" and "Cars," I would consider visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios and make sure to ride Toy Story Mania! first thing in the morning. When we were in Disney's Hollywood Studios two weeks ago, guests could have photos taken with Woody and Buzz and stars of "Cars 2." Please know that Character Greetings are subject to change.If you are planning to visit a third park, then I would choose Disney's Animal Kingdom Park which is a lot of fun for young children. I am out of room for my answer, but please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any other questions or would like additional dining recommendations.Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Megan!
    Happy Planning,
