    Thinking of going to downtown disney upon arrival and eating at rain forest cafe. Have a girl that's 4 and boy 9. Ideas besides Legos. Preference on bibbidy bibbidy boutique in downtown versus MK???

    Hi, Farrah!  My kids could spend all afternoon just browsing the shops at Downtown Disney.  Once Upon a Toy has the opportunity to not only see some of the latest and greatest toys, but you can play with some of them as well!  My 12 year old used to not want to leave once she got her hands on the Mr. Potato Head toys!  

    There is a carousel and small train at Downtown Disney that the children can ride on, and lots of kids love to run through the dancing fountains.

    As for my Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique preference, I love them both, so I choose whichever one works with my schedule.  If it's really hot, it's not always very comfortable walking around the theme park dressed as your favorite princess, but that would be the time I'd go to the Downtown Disney location and then maybe to a nice meal.  If I'm going to be at Magic Kingdom and the weather is comfortable, I'll try to get an early morning reservation there.

    I hope your vacation is amazing!
