Hello! We are just 3 months away from our big disney world family vacation! We rented a house 10 minutes from Disney, We have our 4 day park hopper passes and plan on taking a day to spend at Clearwater beach & taking a day to relax at the house (private pool) and have a BBQ. My questions are all Disney World related, here is a list of what I am looking to get more info on:
-best character dining for family ranging in ages 2-75?
& when you reserve a character dining, do you have to pay in advance?
-what can/should we bring into the park with us?
-MUST see attractions/rides?
-Any Easter tips (we will be there for Easter)
-What do most little girls (ages 5 & 2) where to disney?
-Temperature averages the end of March/early April
-Fast Pass/ Character meeting tips
-ANY OTHER suggestions/tips you can give me are greatly appreciated!

Instead rewriting the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World in a single post, I'll just answer one question and point you in the direction of the Theme Parks and Attractions board for an answer to the rest of your questions.
The average temperature in late March/early April is highs around 78-83 degrees with lows in the 54-59 degree range. Average precip. is between 2"-4" total for the month.

I don't have any specific answers, but I would recommend getting an information book such as The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World. You'll learn so much, and it is fun to read in anticipation of a trip.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!
Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Here's how we enter each park: I'm the designated runner. I go up as close to the front as I can get while my husband and the 3 kids hang back to watch the ropedrop show. When I get into the park, I go ahead with everyone's park tickets to get our first set of fastpasses while he hangs back-- this is a particularly good idea since you'll have a stroller. Here's how I would approach it in your shoes:
Magic Kingdom: Fastpass Peter Pan, meet at Dumbo. (NOTE: The new Fantasyland wasn't open in August, so you'll need better info here. Your girls will want to spend time in Fantasyland.)
Epcot: Fastpass Soarin', meet at Soarin and get on line. It is SO worth doing twice!!!!
AK: We fastpass Kali, but that's because it's August-- we enjoy getting wet. Ask other spring travelers about this one.
DHS: Fastpass Toy Story Mania, do it twice.
Also, consider getting a Photopass and either splitting the cost with your parents or giving it as an Easter gift to them. You can pre-purchase and save some money. And you'll love the pictures you get!
Have a blast!
