    Thanks Cathy for your help. With that schedule do you think I'm better off doing character meals for breakfast rather than lunch and dinner? I have ADR for Tusker House and Hollywood & Vine. Also, what do you think about Dessert Fireworks Party?

    Hi, Lauren!

    It really depends on which restaurant you are dining at when deciding which meal of the day to choose.  With both Tusker House and Hollywood & Vine, I would select breakfast and lunch over dinner simply because with little ones, you will want to dine with the characters.  (Both of these locations are character-free at dinner.)

    If I had to plan for this, I would opt for Tusker House for breakfast and Hollywood & Vine for lunch.  The lunch buffet is great at lunch at Tusker House, but I think your kids will find more to eat on the Hollywood & Vine lunch buffet vs.Tusker House.  Breakfast at both locations is pretty much your good-old breakfast fare!

    Now onto the Fireworks Dessert Party.  Personally, this is something we pass on.  For my family, we are happy grabbing a yummy Mickey Ice Cream bar and keep on enjoying the Magic Kingdom.  The Fireworks Dessert Party is wonderful if you are a huge sweets person, but at about $22 per adult and $14 per child, that's a LOT of Mickey bars!  Also, I know you only have a few days in the parks, and I think your time might be better spent enjoying the attractions.  It is up to you, but weigh the pros and cons. 

    I hope this helps!  Let me know how your planning is going and if there is anything else I can do to make your vacation magical!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
