    1st time WDW. ADRs at Via Napoli 6:20, arriving Epcot 4:30. DD7 & DS3. Looks to be an very long walk for small children from entrance all the way to Italy just for some Pizza. What are our options for getting around the showcase efficiently w kids?

    Hi, Patrick!

    It is a bit of a walk to Via Napoli from the front entrance of Epcot, but your travels will be worth it.  Via Napoli serves delicious meals!  I love their pizza as well as their amazing chicken parmigiana - yum!  Click HERE for their menu. 

    Your best bet will be to get a double stroller.  Even if your 7 year old does not normally use a stroller, I am guessing she will gladly hop in for the ride!   Once everyone is settled in the stroller, head back toward World Showcase.

    Since you will have plenty of time, when you arrive at the entrance of World Showcase, head to the left for a stop in Mexico.  Your kids will love the Gran Fiesta Tour attraction where you will go in search of Donald Duck on this pleasant boat ride.  Enjoy the beautiful Mexico pavilion, and the kids can even make a KidCot stop where they can do a craft. 

    After visiting Mexico, continue on your journey toward Italy.  After dinner, visit a few more countries the before the start of Illuminations.  Your kids will enjoy all the KidCot stops, and mom and dad will enjoy the beauty of each country. With just a few hours, you really will not be able to enjoy every country, but pick one or two and and have fun exploring!  

    You are in for a very nice evening, I hope you have a great night in Epcot!  Enjoy!

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!
