    Hi Beth!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    You asked a lot of good questions.  Unfortunately, our responses are limited in length so I probably won't be able to get to all of them.  Please write back with more questions; you can send questions to the panel in general or you can direct them to a specific panelist.  I would be happy to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.

    Several of the Disney hotels offer movies by the pool or under the stars.  However, as a Caribbean Beach Resort guest, you are only allowed to use the pool at the Caribbean Beach Resort.  Still, if you want to visit another resort, I personally have always loved watching the movies on the beach at the Beach Club Resort, which is located on Crescent Lake between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It is easiest the visit the Beach Club on a night that you are visiting Epcot, as it is only about a 5 minute walk from the International Gateway entrance of Epcot located between the United Kingdom and France Pavilion.  There is also a great ice cream shop at the Beach Club called Beaches and Cream and you can get ice cream to go at a window.

    Chef Mickey's is a great place to dine.  It has always been my boys, now ages 13 and 8, favorite Disney Character Dining Experience.  I personally prefer going there for dinner as I like to get an early start in the parks, but many guests enjoy starting off their day at Chef Mickey's. 

    All of the parks offer nighttime spectaculars except for Disney's Animal Kingdom.  My favorite is Fantasmic in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Be sure not to miss it.  If you want something unique, you might try a Pirates and Pals fireworks cruise; there you can watch the Magic Kingdom Wishes fireworks show from a boat on Seven Seas Lagoon.

    Please write back with more questions!
