    Hi everyone! My dh and I are thinking of visiting IOA/US in Sept or Oct. We have two little ones, DD5 (who wil be 6 by then) and DD2.
    1. When is the best time to go with not a lot of wait time?
    2. What is there to do with my little one, if anything?
    3. What would be the best place to stay?
    4. What are the best rides for my soon to be 6yo? She loves to ride, but nothing upside down and nothing dark and scary!
    My dh and I haven't been since about 2000, and I just don't know what is there and what we need to plan on doing. All we did while we were there was coasters, we did not have any kids!;) ANy help, suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! TIA

    See comments in red above.
    Plan to do at least one really nice meal while there, as UO has some awesome restaurants. In the parks, the best is Mythos. I love Mama Della's at Portofino (I have a reservation for this coming Tuesday!), and I also like Emeril's Tchoup Chop at the Royal Pacific. In Citywalk, I like Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Make sure you take time to enjoy the grounds, as some of the best sites are outside the parks in the areas around the hotels and along the canals that lead from the hotels to Citywalk.
    Hope you have a great trip.

    You might want to research the ET ride too. It does have some dark areas with car headlights suddenly stopping in front of you but it's all in all a rather sweet ride. There at least used to be the Animal Planet show too.
