    Thank you for your thoughtful reply! We're arriving 10am on Feb 26 and leaving 8:30pm on Mar 5 (flight times). I have the first few days planned (have been using Undercover Tourist crowd calendar, do you recommend?) but after that I'm not sure what to do.

    Hi, Cathleen!

    I am so glad you have a plan started for your vacation! With a travel party of 6, you are going to want to be prepared.  I am a big fan of the Undercover Tourist crowd calendar. This is what I use to plan my personal vacations.  Let me map out a plan.  Blend this with what you have planned to create an agenda that works for you:

    Feb 26: Arrive, settle in. Visit Downtown Disney. Dinner: Whispering Canyon or Chef Mickey's
    Feb 27: Hollywood Studios  Lunch: Sci-Fi Dine-in Theatre or 50's Prime Time Cafe
    Feb 28: Epcot  Lunch: Chefs de France or Dinner: Teppan Edo (Japan)
    Mar 1: Magic Kingdom  Breakfast: Crystal Palace or Lunch: Plaza Restaurant
    Mar 2: Animal Kingdom  Breakfast: Tusker House (buffet with Donald Duck) or Lunch: Rainforest Cafe 
    Mar 3: Water Park/Pool Day
    Mar 4: Revisit a favorite park
    Mar 5: Magic Kingdom (if you plan on a park before heading home)

    I included some favorite table service locations, you will need to check availability and make reservations quickly.

    If you are looking for other activities, a fun way to spend an evening is at the Polynesian Resort.  Grab a quick dinner at Captain Cooks and head to the beach for the Electric Water Pageant and Magic Kingdom fireworks (check for times).   During a day off from the parks, head to one of the many marinas around property and rent a fun speed boat.  There is so much to do!

    Let me know how this works with your plan and if you need some Quick Service dining ideas.  I am here for you!  Just about 23 weeks and counting until you get to see Mickey Mouse - yeah!
