    Briana Asked

    I am going the 3rd week of Sept for 5 days will have the park hopper and it will be me and my family first time going. I was wondering if I could have tips on what to do, places to see, eat?

    Hi Briana! September is a great month to visit Disney. Weather is still going to be hot but the summer rains are dwindling and the crowds are certainly less since schools are back in session.

    I suggest you take a day at each of the four parks. Pick one dining location in each and make a reservation for that day. It can be either lunch or dinner but it is nice to sit down and be served once a day to relax and share in conversation. Look ahead at the park hours at and decide what day for each park. You can also look over all the attractions for the parks on the site and make a list of those that are a must see for your family.  Some might use the Fast Pass system so be sure and understand how to do this before you go.  For the fifth day you can explore Downtown Disney or head to a water park or just enjoy your resort pool and amenities. Perhaps you will want to rent a boat for a morning or go fishing or take one of the many great tours.

    I will list my favorite dining spots for each park. You can make reservations 180 days ahead and suggest you do this as many book up completely.
    Magic Kingdom: Liberty Tree Tavern
    Animal Kingdom: Yak and Yeti
    Hollywood Studios: 50's Primetime Cafe
    Epcot: Any of the World Showcase restaurants depending on your tastes

    As you start to plan and have questions please let me know and I will help you each step of the way!
