    Thanks, Laura!! I have sooo many questions about planning our trip. We are planning on getting a Dining Plan, park passes with the Hopper added on. We're leaning more towards renting from a DVC member since we can get a villa for the price of the resort.

    Hi Alysia,


    Thank you for your follow up question!  I love helping you plan your vacation.  I noticed that you will be going to Walt Disney World in October which is my favorite time of year to visit.  I want to know about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  My family has gone to this several times, and it is so much fun.  You can dress up in costume and go Trick-or-Treating at the Magic Kingdom.  You will see a special Halloween parade and fireworks which are amazing.  Be sure to see the beginning of the parade as you may just see the Headless Horseman!  The Disney Dining Plan is fantastic.  You can make Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance, and I would recommend this.  I have several favorite restaurants.  At Magic Kingdom, I love the Crystal Palace.  It is a buffet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and you can meet and greet Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore.  Bring your camera and autograph books!  At Epcot, The Coral Reef Restaurant and Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavillion are not to be missed.  The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant allows you to see be at the Drive-in and eat in your "car" while watching old movies.  1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian is a wonderful way to see Cinderella, Prince Charming, and friends.  You can get there from the Magic Kingdom or Epcot via the Monorail.  Tusker House is a wonderful restaurant at Animal Kingdom.  I know you will have a great dining experience, Alysia.
