    Hello, we will be traveling for our first Disney holiday from 16th Dec to 21st Dec staying at Port Orleans - French Quarters. its 2 adults and 2 boys (4 and 2), could you recommend an itinerary and also a character dining experience?

    Greetings Kiran!
    I know you must be getting super excited to visit Walt DIsney World for the very first time in just a few days! My favorite Character Dining Experiences include Chef Mickey's located at Disney's Contemporary Resort featuring the "Fab 5" and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast at Disney's Polynesian Resort featuring Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch. When my children were toddlers, we also loved to dine with Winnie the Pooh and Friends at The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park. I would highly recommend that you go ahead and book an Advanced Dining Reservation for your Character Dining Experience by calling (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. Since you will be a guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you will be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, which allow you additional time in the parks above and beyond standard operating hours. I have found that we are able to experience many of our favorite attractions during Morning Extra Magic Hours with little to no wait. 

    The following is a sample itinerary based on visiting all four theme parks:
    Sunday, December 16th - Arrival (Get settled into your resort and enjoy a good night's sleep)
    Monday, December 17th - Disney's Animal Kingdom Park (Morning Extra Magic Hours)
    Tuesday, December 18th - Epcot (Morning Extra Magic Hours)
    Wednesday, December 19th - Magic Kingdom Park
    Thursday, December 20th - Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Friday, December 21st - Departure
    Follow this link to view the Park Hours for your vacation dates. Please know that operating hours are subject to change. I hope this information helps! Please feel free to visit me again with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical first trip, Kiran!
    Happy Planning,
