    We are taking our son age 5 and daughter age 3 1/2 to WDW in November for their first visit. We are staying at the Contemporary for 4 nights and want some suggestions for age appropriate dining / character experiences / activities we wouldnt want to miss.

    Hi there, Susan!

    I'm excited to hear about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! You've picked a great time of the year to enjoy the Parks in all of their holiday finest! I highly recommend visiting all of the Magic Kingdom area Resorts to enjoy the holiday decorations in each lobby! I think your little ones will really love the life-size Gingerbread House at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! 

    Also, I suggest ordering your Free Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD so that you can watch and learn about all of the exciting things there are to see and do at Walt Disney World! Our family just loves to watch it over and over and it really gets the excitement going in the time leading up to the vacation!

    You won't want to miss dining with Mickey at Chef Mickey's located right in your Resort. You'll be able to interact and take photos with The Big Cheese himself, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald Duck. It's always so much fun to meet Mickey Mouse on your very first trip to Walt Disney World! My second recommendation for Character Dining is The Crystal Palace located inside Magic Kingdom Park. There, you'll be able to meet with Characters such as Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger! Both restaurants have an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet with special kids' sections that are awesome!

    I hope this gives you a place to start! Please feel free to stop back by if we can help with any other questions you have.

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
