    Hello! I will be visiting Disney World in January 2016. I'm having a hard time deciding what character dine I want to book, it will be my son(6) and daughter(2) first trip here. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Kerie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on your first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! You must be so excited! Be sure to get a "First Visit" Celebration Recognition Button when you arrive at your Resort Hotel, or you can get one at Guest Services in any of the Theme Parks. It's so much fun to have Cast Members and Guests share in your special celebration!

    My whole family loves the Character Dining Experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort; it's such a great (and delicious) way to meet your Disney favorites in one spot. Here are my recommendations  for you and your little ones:

    Breakfast at The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park:
    Start your day with a delicious "All-You-Care-to-Enjoy" breakfast buffet and some hugs from Winnie the Pooh and Pals. Get an early morning Advanced Dining Reservation and enjoy a walk down Main Street, U.S.A. before Magic Kingdom Park gets crowded. You'll have the opportunity to take some great photos of your family without the usual crowd of people in the background. 

    Lunch at Hollywood & Vine in Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    Your children will get to meet Jake, Sofia, and a few other Disney Junior pals during a Lunchtime meal there. (Character Dining is also available at Breakfast too) Another plus to lunchtime dining at Hollywood & Vine is that you can also book the Fantasmic! Dinner Package for VIP seating for Fantasmic! if you wish. 

    I hope this information helps. Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Enjoy Your Magical Visit,
