    we have all our ADRs for the character meals set. id like to try a new restaurant this time. can you recommend a non character meal that would be fun for a 3 and 1 year old. thanks!

    Hi Jessica,

    Our family has two favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World:  those we eat at for the amazingly yummy food and those we eat at because we love the atmosphere & antics.  I'd love to share our favorites from the latter category, keeping in mind your little ones.

    Epcot's Coral Reef (one wall is nearly an entire aquarium; fun to watch all the ocean life)
    Epcot's Biergarten (a live oompah band entertains the crowds & kids LOVE the dance floor)
    Disney's Hollywood Studio's Sci-Fi Drive In (imagine being in a drive in theater at night in the 1950s)
    Disney's Hollywood Studios 50s Prime Time Cafe (dine in a 1950s kitchen with your own tv; make sure and wash your hands!)
    Wilderness Lodge's Whispering Canyon Cafe (it isn't quiet as guests yee-haw; kids can race wooden ponies)
    Polynesian's 'Ohana (ever had a coconut race?)

    And there is also T-Rex and the Rainforest Cafe if you haven't experienced those outside of Walt Disney World.  

    If you click on the links, you should get a peek at the restaurants as well as most of the menus to see which your family would like best.  Bon appetit!
