-Absolutly set on staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and hopefully having a room with view of savanna.
-Would visit each of the parks 1 day except EPCOT which I have suggested and they have agreed two days, so that they can ride and eat their way around the world
-They are not interested in having extra time to go back to hotel and relax or visit Downtown Disney to shop, but would like to know about all of the good restaurants within the parks and around the resort
-Will use any sort of Fast Pass, Express Pass, or tour plan to avoid as many long lines as possible (I can set them up with this though, so we don't need as much help here)
-Want to ride only the top attractions (which most likely means no really kiddie rides or the very minor attractions that are at each of the parks)
-Want to visit in October
Now here is where my work comes in. I have suggested they visit in November to avoid big crowds, but will they be able to do this in October with all of the Halloween events? And if any of you have good ideas for anything mentioned above, feel free to help out!
As for Restaurants, O'Hana at the Polynesian is a favorite of ours. We always hit it once while down there. Liberty Tavern at MK has some good choices which aren't simply quick service burgers and chicken.
Epcot? Just eat something from each country, your on vacation!. Plus with Food and Wine going on the sample sizes are perfect for snacking all day!
Studios has The Sci-Fi drive-in (I forget the full name now)which is always a fun time and rather unique. There is also Brown Derby and Melrose's both of which are sit down service.
Outside of that..We really enjoy Wolfgang Pucks and Fultons Crab House(For the husband) at Downtown Disney.
Are they going to Animal Kingdom? If so, what are they going to do at night?
My most favorite place to eat at Disney World is Yachttsmen Steakhosue. Kouzina by Cat Cora is always nice too!
