    Thanks so much Jodie. My 180 days opens next week, do you have any advice on not to be missed places to eat. I am planning a mixture of table service meals for breakfast, lunch and dinners to coincide with touring. How long to commute from DBC to parks?

    Thanks for writing back, Victoria! I would love to offer dining suggestions for your upcoming trip! My favorite dining location is 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort. This amazing restaurant features a Polynesian-inspired menu in a festive tropical setting. 'Ohana serves fabulous food family-style and is an all-you-care to eat dining location.At Epcot, there are many great options in the World Showcase. My personal favorites are Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion, Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion, and Chefs de France, located in the France Pavilion.My family enjoys 50's Prime Time Café at Hollywood Studios. If you are looking for a Character Dining Experience, I would recommend Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast inside the Polynesian Resort. You will dine with the 'Fab 5" at Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast features Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch. Other fun dining locations for children include T-REX Café, located in Downtown Disney, and Rainforest Café, which offers guests two dining locations: Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom park. Our favorite breakfast location is Kona Café inside the Polynesian Resort, which is a short monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom. Don't miss Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at the Beach Club for burgers, fries, and ice cream sundaes. We enjoy listening to the jukebox favorites while dining at this 50's style diner. Epcot is a short 10-15 minute walk from the Beach Club Resort. You will want to take the Friendship Ferry to Hollywood Studios and allow 20 minutes travel time.For traveling to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom,  you will need to utilize the bus transportation. I would allow 30-45 minutes to give yourself ample travel time. I am out of room, but please feel free to write back if you would like additional dining suggestions or if you have any other questions that I can assist you with.Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Victoria!
    Happy Planning,
