Family's First Trip to WDW. SAD NEWS AGAIN!!!

Hi all my name is lizet my baby sister is graduating from high school in 2010. I know it might be early but I need some ideas on where to stay? and what to do?

I went to my first trip to WDW in Feb. 11th through the 15th and I stayed in SSR I loved the resort it's beautiful and peaceful. I enjoyed it but I don't want her to walk to much.

Extra info my sis has one leg shorter than the other one well they are the same length but for some reason when she was 7yrs old she began saying her knees hurt when we took her to the doctor they found out she was going to need operation after she was done growing to pull her leg away from her pelvis. Some how her leg is stuck close to her pelvis. She is a good girl we do not allow anything less than a high C in our family luckily she has all A's one C in grades. So she deserves the trip I was thinking it was either this or a cruise. We both are disney and mickey lovers. I have a wheel chair for her for when she gets tired.

I was interested in looking for a resort where you can view the fireworks at night or something where there is entertainment close by something fun and exciting.

I am 22yrs old I know I know what took me so long to go to disney? To be honest I really have no idea I have always wanted to go to disney but I think the one thing that can always stop someone is money.

Well thanks to all that read this. Thanks for all your help in advance.

Oh PS my sister is the first one to graduate on time. My brother and I graduated in August just a couple of months after the real graduation but we did I am class of 05 and my bro is class of 06 I am very proud of us but we decided we where not going to let our little sister make the same mistakes we did. She has not one but two siblings to look after her and protect her.

Well, I know that the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian, and Contemporary Resort all have good views of the Magic Kingdom Fireworks.
For your sister's convenience, the Grand Floridian has a monorail that runs right through the lobby of the hotel that goes to the Magic Kingdom. Of course, you can always utlize the buses that go from each resort to all the theme parks, Downtown Disney, and the water parks.

It's really sweet that you're planning this for your sister! She sounds really deserving of it and it'll be a great trip with your family!

There are a lot of fun character meals. I've only been to Cape May which is in the Beach Club. The only character meal they have is breakfast. And the characters they have are Minnie, Goofy, Chip, and Dale. There they are all dressed in beach clothes.

Then there is Chef Mickey's which is in the Contemporary Resort. This I would say is the most popular one so you have to reserve far in advance. The character's there are Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald. There they are all in chef clothes. They have character breakfasts and dinners, but breakfast is much more affordable.

I've heard that another great one is the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom. It is the one and only dining with Winnie the Pooh and friends. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A tip for this place is to get reservations for an early breakfast because then you can get a picture in front of Cinderella's castle without people in the background because you can get into the Magic Kingdom before opening.

Another one is Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch. It is in the Polynesian resort. You can eat breakfast with Lilo and Stitch.

One more main one is Cinderella's Royal Table. It is located inside Cinderella's castle in the Magic Kingdom. Reservations are required and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your meal also comes with a souvenir photo of your party.

I hope this helped. Here is the link to a website that has even more meals all over WDW. http://www.wdwinfo.com/Just_for_kids...ter_dining.cfm Have a great time!
