Hi folks! We are planning our first WDW trip since 2000. My daughter was 4 then and next year she will be graduating HS (where did the time go?). The only thing she really remembers is a talking trash can chasing after her. This is the first time for my son who will be 11 when we go this November 2-9 (Sat.-Sat.). I'm sure I'll be asking alot of questions over the next few months but right now I'm trying to figure out the best day to reserve a character dinner at the Garden Grill. It appears that they only do dinners and not lunches. Here's my agenda so far based on easywdw.com's website: 11/2-Arrive at Extended Stay Suites late afternoon (driving from NJ) 11/3-MGM Studios- Fantasmic@7pm 11/4-Epcot-MSEP@8pm then Wishes. (this is when I planned the Garden Grill) 11/5-Magic Kingdom-Illuminations@9pm (Would this be a better day for Garden Grill?) 11/6-Sea World (no parks this day) 11/7-Magic Kingdom-MSEP and Wishes 11/8-Magic Kingdom-Osbourne Lights 11/9-Animal Kingdom in morning then leave for home by early afternoon. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I picked Garden Grill because I read that there is a better ratio between character and child than other cms.
