They didn't have a meal plan when we went. We really liked the food in MGM the best. Although there are a TON of restaurants in Epcot that were great too. Just couldn't afford to eat there everyday. Prime Time cafe and Hollywood and Vine were the best bang for our buck. And fun for the kids. The ethnic restaurants in Epcot rock though.

Oh and the Canadian pavilion is PATHETIC. If I saw one more Roots label or Anne of Green Gables product I might have barfed. Give it a pass.

I'd avoid the Lilo and Stitch ride in Tomorrowland. It's quite scary. One little kid sitting next to us really lost it. I bet he didn't sleep for a week! I agree with Prime Time Cafe for the family in MGM. Magic Kingdom I'd try for Crystal Palace. The Japanese Pavilion has the hibachi cooking where they cook at your table. It was very good. Go at lunchtime there though cause at night they book up fast. Watch for hidden Mickey's. There's a book that tells you where to look for them. You'll find you'll eat more with the meal plan. We got it and had trouble making room for all the food! Staying at the park is good. We usually get a cabin in the Fort Wilderness Campground. Have fun. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

2 things about Disney World:

1) Ride the front of the monorail. Just ask as you go up. Wonderful view, tons of fun, and usually not crowded (they sit 4 up there if I remember correctly)

2) When a Disney staffer tells you the attraction is not age appropriate for your child listen to them. We were there for the Alien eXperience and many parents of younger children scoffed when a staffer said it wasn't appropriate. Those were the same children that had to be removed during the show because they were scared to death.
