    Thanks Anna! Our trip will be during sb 2013. Don't plan on getting park hopper passes nor visiting the water parks out first time.Do u still rec. mk 2d epcot 2d hs&ak 1d & 1tbd? Plan on getting the plus dining pkg, what rest. & character meals

    Hi, Mandi!  Okay, now that I know you'll be there during spring break, I definitely think you'll need two days at EPCOT and the Magic Kingdom and a full day dedicated to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  You may find with your extra day, you might want to go back to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  There are a lot of street perfomances and other stage type attractions that you may want to catch on a second trip through.

    Character meals are a favorite of my children.  We love Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort (you'll usually find Mickey and friends here) and the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom (Pooh and Friends).  For breakfast, 'Ohana is a huge hit with my girls, as you will usually find Lilo and Stitch there.  Another breakfast favorite for us is the Cape May buffet at the Beach Club.  You'll often find Goofy, Minnie, and a few others here.  If your kids like the Disney Junior television programs, you'll find Handy Manny and some of the Little Einsteins usually hang out at breakfast and lunch at Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and if you're in the mood for a meal with the princesses, you'll find them at EPCOT Princess Storybook Dining in the Norway pavilion and at Cinderella's Royal Table in Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom.

    You won't find characters, but you'll have a unique dining experience when you sit down at Mom's table at Prime Time 50s Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios or the Sci-Fi Dine In, where you sit in cars at a drive in movie theater to enjoy your meal (also at the Studios). 

    Thank you so much for your follow up question!  I'm here if you need me again as you plan for this absolutely magical vacation!
