    Thanks so much, Jodie:) You're right-SandBar does offer more variety- how far is it from the pool by BLT? Shall we swim at BLT pool & get food by Contemporary pool? Would you mind recommend a few good TS/QS restaurants at MK& MK resort area? Thanks

    It's so good to hear from you again, Jessica!  The Sand Bar at Disney's Contemporary Resort is maybe a 5 minute walk from Bay Cove Pool at best. Make sure to verify this when you check-in, but I think you will find that you will have access to both Bay Cove Pool and the main pool at the Contemporary Resort. We usually started the day at Bay Cove Pool and then moved over to the main pool at the Contemporary Resort when they started their organized pool side activities.You have no idea how much I enjoy making dining recommendations to guests planning trips to Disney! My family's favorite quick service restaurant in Magic Kingdom is Casey's Corner for their yummy corn dog nuggets! We love to sit outside under a table and umbrella taking in the sights and sounds of Main Street U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle.In the Magic Kingdom Resort area, we like dining at Contempo Café at the Contemporary Resort for a quick service meal and watching the monorail pass overhead.We enjoy Capt. Cooks at Disney's Polynesian Resort for breakfast (they even serve the famous Tonga Toast) and Gasparilla Grill and Games at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. My favorite table service restaurants near the Magic Kingdom include 'Ohana at the Polynesian Resort, Kona Café (love breakfast and dinner) and California Grill at the Contemporary Resort. On our vacation two weeks ago, we tried The Grand Floridian Café at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for the first time and enjoyed a delicious dinner and great overall experience. The kids even got "worms in dirt" for dessert which was a huge hit with my "little ones." Our favorite Character Dining Experiences include Chef Mickey's featuring the "Fab 5" at the Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto at the Polynesian Resort. Please feel free to write back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magically Delicious Trip, Jessica!
    Bon Appétit,
