    I am taking my 9, 8, and 4 year old to Disney in March. What character dinner should we do? And can we do more than just Magic Kingdom or are the kids too young?

    Hi Brooke!

    I think the character dinner you choose will really depend on your kids.  One of the hallmark dining experiences is Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort (just a short monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom).  Another favorite is Cinderella's Royal Table, where you can dine with the Disney Princesses in Cinderella Castle!  We also really enjoy eating with Winnie the Pooh and the gang at The Crystal Palace, located in the Magic Kingdom, just steps away from the beloved castle.  Once you do decide on a dining destination, I suggest that you make a dining reservation as soon as possible!  Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, and the popular ones (like Cinderella's Royal Table) book quickly!

    Your kids are lightyears older than mine--and I absolutely see no reason for you to just visit Magic Kingdom.  Epcot will have tons of exciting things for them, as will Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom.  I suggest that you order a Disney Vacation Planning DVD and check out what each park has in store for you.  I'm confident you'll find something for everyone in your family! 

    Have a magical vacation!
