    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you already broke out your best dance moves to celebrate going to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Let us start with food since you want to do some character meals. My family prefers character meals as a way to see the characters so that we avoid standing in line! Each character stops by your table while you dine. They sign autographs and pose for pictures. Some of our must-do character meals are Chef Mickey's (Disney's Contemporary Resort), The Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom) and Hollywood & Vine (Disney's Hollywood Studios). Be sure to make reservations!

    With Hollywood & Vine, we always do a pre-park opening breakfast reservation so that we can enter the park early and sign-up for Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. While your oldest son may be ready, your youngest one is not quite old enough. Our girls first did battle when they were 7-years old and LOVED it, but I have seen little ones frightened, so check some video clips on YouTube to decide if your 5-year old is ready!

    Brittany, of course, there are must-do attractions that I suggest.
    • Magic Kingdom - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Astro Orbiter, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios - Alien Swirling Saucers (Opening June 30th), Toy Story Mania!, Star Wars Launch Bay
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom - Kilimanjaro Safaris, Na'vi River Journey, The Festival of the Lion King
    • Epcot - Frozen Ever After, Journey into Imagination with Figment, Spaceship Earth

    Happy Planning!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
