    Do you suggest using the extra magic hours in September? Going 18th through 26th? How many meals should I plan a day?


    September is usually a lighter crowd time so I think using both morning and evening Extra Magic Hours is a good idea. If you have two parks on the same day with this going on (one evening, another morning) always opt for the evening hours park, as you get more exclusive time, and there is not such a rush from the crowd at a single time.

    As for meal planning, my rule for a visit at any time of the year is to get an Advanced Dining Reservation for any table service meal you plan on having. In September, with the lighter crowds, you used to be able to walk in to many table service restaurants. But with the free Dining Plan promotion going on there will be a higher number of people eating at the table service restaurants than there would have normally been. So make as many reservations as you expect to use.

    I hope that this answers your question? Please keep asking!

    FYI, maybe I will see you there! Many of the Disney Moms panel will be there for the Expedition Everest 5K. Come cheer us on!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
