    My DH, my 4 yr DD and I will be attending our 1st trip from May 30 to June 3. Using Ive decided the first day will be for settling in, then with 1 park a day we'll be at MK, EP, MK, HS respectively. What advice do you have for dinner?

    Hi Eileen! Even though this vacation will be your first Disney trip, you already sound like an expert planner! Researching the attendance levels and planning your trip in advance is a sure way to have a magical vacation!

    If your daughter is a princess fan, you should definitely plan a dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom! She can wear her princess dress and tiara and Cinderella and friends will stop by the table to chat and pose for photos while you dine on delicious food! The new Be Our Guest restaurant in the Beast's castle has been booked solid, but I noticed some availability in June when I was checking for reservations today so you may be lucky enough to score a table at the hottest restaurant at Disney World if you book now. My kids think riding the monorail is almost as much fun as the rides in the Magic Kingdom, so if you want to take a break from the park, lots of fabulous restaurants are just a short monorail ride away. In the Contemporary Resort, Chef Mickey's is a buffet with tons of choices and an energetic atmosphere with Mickey and friends. My family also loves 'Ohana in the Polynesian where the servers bring scrumptious family-style platters of grilled meats, vegetables and sides to your table.

    It's hard to pick just one restaurant for dinner at Epcot, because there are so many great ones. At Le Cellier in Canada, my kids love the pretzel bread, my husband enjoys the steaks, and I love the cheese soup. At Teppan Edo in Japan the table-side hibachi chefs are so entertaining. We love the pizzas and the "ugly but good" sundaes at Via Napoli.

    In Hollywood Studios, my kids always beg to go to the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater where the servers whiz by on roller skates while we watch campy old movies and dine in cars.

    If you need more help planning your trip, please come visit me at the Moms Panel! I'd love to talk with you again!
