    I am taking my two daughters ages 2 and 4 to the park for the first time. They LOVE the disney characters, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy. What are the best places to go to see these characters ie breakfast/dinner meets/pic, shows,any activities for kids

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Renee. We're glad you stopped by!

     I'm so happy to hear you're planning a visit to the theme parks with your daughters. There's little better than watching your kiddos experience the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort! I love that those sweet girls of yours adore Mickey Mouse and his pals. I do too!

     I don't know about your kids, but mine don't wait well. For that reason, we prefer to meet our favorite characters at Character Dining Experiences. These fantastic meals feature kid-friendly fare, and instead of waiting in line to visit with our pals, they come right to our table for autographs and photos! My family especially enjoys Chef Mickey's, Minnie's Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine, and Tusker House Restaurant. Reservations for these dining experiences are often limited, but don't fret if you can't find immediate availability. Sometimes reservations become available the closer you are to your arrival date, so keep checking! 

     Mickey Mouse and his friends offer awesome entertainment options. Your girls will be so excited to see them! I bet they'd also enjoy Mickey's PhilharMagic, a 3D movie musical starring Disney characters. 

     I hope this was helpful, Renee. I'm wishing you and your little ones the most magical visit!
