We may be lucky enough to be coming for a 5 day trip in Sept or Oct. We are probably going to do quick service plan. Any ideas fof each park? At the time of thr trip the kids will be just under 6 (girl) and 22-23 mos (boy).

First off dnt over do it take ur time and maybe dnt do all the parks . There is a lot to do at mk . Drink lots of water because it will be hot! Try to see the characters that is the best thing for kids and grown ups . Maybe try to do half days at parks so you do not get too tired . Eat at caseys in mk great hot dogs! The quick service is plenty of food believe me we always get the reg dining plan and its too much lol but we love the character dining. Buy the mugs when you get there well worth it and its a great keep sake! Where are you staying? If you have any questions everyone here can help you out . Have a great night!!! - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 10:23PM
Make your daughter a princess at bibbity bobbity boutique and your son a pirate at the pirates league! (Both are at MK.) - PixieDust76  93.4 #78 10:34PM
5 days! Sounds like fun! I'd say take advantage of the extra magic hours especially mornings so you can grab fast passes and eat breakfast. MK is a must for little ones. I agree, take it easy and pace yourself. You have time to hit them all but the little ones will love it if you catch alot of characters and shows! Have fun! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #25 2:13AM
@shews its not that warm in sept/oct! But it can get warm, so have water on hand at all times, check weather.com for the forecast. You may want to pick up a copy of the Unofficial Guide to WDW (library or bookstore or Amazon). They have a section on kids, and some touring plans for kids. You may want to take two days for MK, a day for AK(morning) and DHS (night) and potentionally not Epcot at all. For restaurants, we really like dinner at Pecos Bills (Mk) during electrical parade. Are you doing Mickey's Not-So-Scary halloween party? That might be fun for the kids! Any more questions just ask - C-Ticket  42.0 #121 5:11AM
October is very nice but we have been down in September and it still gets pretty hot especially for little ones . The nice thing about October is the humidity is a lot lower . - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 6:19AM
There's one year that I've been at Disney when September was hotter than the year I went in August. You never know. - PixieDust76  93.4 #78 9:23AM
Very true pixie it is a roll of the dice lol - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 9:48AM
We are doing a nicer, longer trip for Fall 2012. We'll do the table service and character dining then. When we do that, we do quick service lunch. Some faves are Flamin Grill in AK and Pizza Planet in MGM. What are some of the other good guick services at the parks or resorts? Looks like we'll be at either OKW or Saratogo. - Disneydad42  5.6 #389 11:25AM
Pecos Bills at MK has taco salad and a cool burger bar, Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot has many choices and good food. - PixieDust76  93.4 #78 2:22PM
From what I have been reading beg of september average temp is 90 degrees. - Wrice  17.2 #191 2:27PM
Pecos bill good taco salad I get it every year! - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 3:52PM
September is nice it can still get hot last year we went in September it was cooler and the year before that it was just as hot as it is now - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 3:54PM
Most of our visits have been Sept.-Oct. It's less crowded and not too hot. The only negative is that one of the water parks will be closed for refurb. Thanks for the Pecos Bill reminder. I'll check on the Sunshine. Don't think we've done that before. - Disneydad42  5.6 #389 8:28PM
Caseys in mk rocks too!!! Tommorowland terrace too - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 8:42PM
Tomorrowland Terrace... Is that the one with the animatronic dj/musician by the tables. We haven't stopped there for years! I remember going there with my neices when they were small. Our kids will love it. - Disneydad42  5.6 #389 8:30AM
When I have gone to DL with grandchildren that age, its a whole different experience. Take the time to let them do some things at their own pace instead of hurrying them along to the next place. It's surprising what they find fascinating, that adults usually pass by.  Also my grandkids liked swimming and an afternoon rest. - ally  509.0 #18 8:35AM
@disneydad42 i think ur thinking of Cosmic Ray's. Mum loves it there, but her new favourite may be Pecos Bill's. Taco salad+electrical parade=happy C-Ticket - C-Ticket  42.0 #121 8:56AM
If you are staying at a Disney resort you can get the quick service dinning plan for free in that time. There's a special offer on now. Check out the post I did earlier today. - ready4vacation  8.8 #12627 11:22AM
That's right c ticket cosmic rays and taco salad and electrical parade makes for a happy night - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #98 11:24AM
During the deal, quick service is included with a stay at a value resort, or you can pay extra to upgrade. Regular DDP is included in moderate/deluxe resort. Even with upgrade to regular DDP, value would still be cheaper, but i say the few extra hundred dollars are worth it. Bigger room, on-site full-service restaurant, quieter. - C-Ticket  42.0 #121 12:10PM
We have to pay for the plan. We're using DVC points. @c-ticket you're right. I was thinking of Cosmic Rays. @ ally I won't mind taking a rest either. lol. This will be the our daughters second trip. So I'm thinking it will be a bit more relaxed. - Disneydad42  5.6 #389 1:53PM
Qs in Mexico at Epcot is amazing, flame tree at AK, DTD has Earl or sandwich and Wolfgang puck express, both are really good. SSR only qs has sandwiches salads, nothing amazing, never stayed at OKW, but from both I would go to DTD for qs since they are close to either resort you may stay at. - Andrea84  731.8 #12 2:15PM
Andrea thanks for all the tips. From what I hear you can walk to DTD from SSR. Correct? - Disneydad42  5.6 #389 6:16PM
Yes you can, the walk can take 5-15 min depending on which section of the resort you are in. There is also a boat to DTD from SSR. - Andrea84  731.8 #12 7:34PM
