    Arriving Monday, May 4 @ 1:45. After getting to Pop Century, plan to spend afternoon & evening @ Downtown Disney. Taking 4 y/o to the boutique. Do most restaurants need reservations there? Hoping for relaxed day. Other ADR made for our whole wk. T

    Hi Michelle!  I would definitely encourage you to make advanced dining reservation for a restaurant in Downtown Disney as well.  Dinner reservations can be hard to secure if you wait until closer and this way you know you have a spot somewhere.  Your daughter will want to show everyone off her new princess look too!

    Two popular places for children are the Rainforest Cafe and now the new T-Rex: A Prehistoric Family Adventure.  Both have similar atmosphere with one being based in the jungles and the other back in time of the dinosaurs. Fulton's Crab House, Cap'N Jack's restaurant, Planet Hollywood, and Wolfgang Puck Cafe are other options.  You can check out their menus by going to and searching menus in the search box at the top.  This will give you an idea of what might appeal to your daughter the most.  There are also several counter service options such as McDonalds and Earl of Sandwich.  For a great end of day treat consider heading to Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop!
