    Hi, Were visiting Disney World with 2 girls of 5 and 7 yrs old. We'd like to ask 2 things: 1)we are staying at Pop Century with the Quick dining plan. Do you think it is enough? 2)Is there any park you recommend us to visit on a specfic day(monday, etc

    Hi Carolina,

    The quick answer to both of those questions is, "It depends." Hopefully, I can give you some information to help you make the best choices for your family.

    The Quick Service dining plan is a great option for your family. You'll be given 2 meal credits and 1 snack credit per person for each night of your resort stay. You can use those credits in any combination you like.  For example, if you arrive in the evening of the first night, you may only use one meal credit.  You can use the other meal credit and snack on a different day of your stay. Some of the options considered snacks are often hearty enough for a light breakfast (bagels, muffins, sometimes even cereal). 

    For a lot of people this is plenty of food.  You might want to choose one special sit down meal, maybe a character breakfast or dinner at a unique restaurant like T-Rex.  If it's in your budget it would be a special treat and a nice way to supplement your meal plan.

    As far as which parks to visit, that depends on the type of tickets you purchased.  Do you have park hopper passes that allow you to visit multiple parks in one day, or did you purchase the regular, base ticket?  If you purchased the regular ticket, I recommend avoiding parks that have Extra Magic Hours on a given day.  Sure, you'll be able to get in earlier, but you'll find that park to be more crowded as the regular guests arrive.

    If you have a park hopper pass, then I suggest starting at a park with Extra Magic Hours in the morning and moving to a different park in the afternoon. 

    It sounds complicated, but it's not.  If you send another question with the dates of your trip, I would be happy to let you know which parks will be your best options for specific days.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
