  • Cinderella's Royal Table is lots of fun! I'm sure your girls will love it. Be sure to make your reservation early, especially if you want breakfast, because it does fill up quickly. (ADRs can be made 180 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-DINE) My family actually prefers lunch there, though, so I would say anytime is a good time!

    The park hopper option is a great one, but only if you have room in the budget to pay for it. It's not cheap (in your case, adding about $57 per person to the cost of your ticket) What I compare that to is the fact that for the same dollar amount, I could actually purchase 9 or 10 day park tickets. If it were me and I would be in the area longer, I would opt to forgo the park hopper option and extend the number of days I visit Disney. While I do love the ability to park hop, I'm not sure that I use it enough to justify that dollar value. It's pretty easy to plan a schedule that doesn't require moving from one park to another.

    You can still leave the park for a break if you'd like - to nap, swim, or dine elsewhere - and then if you don't have the park hopper option, just return to the same park. We do not generally do this, preferring instead to soak up every available minute of park time. We tend to visit the pools and visit other resorts or Downtown Disney on non-park days. Again, though, this is just 'our' vacation style. Your best plans will be using your own vacation style. If you change that just because you're in Disney, you may not wind up with the best possible vacation experience...and in the most magical place on earth, that would be a travesty!

    I'm sorry that I can't answer the last part of your question as it seems to have been cut short, but if you send it in again we would be happy to help!
