    what is the BEST counter service to eat at for the best festive,themed,or colorful place for a 5year old?

    Hi Donna!

         I always love food questions - I get hungry just thinking about all of the yummy food available at Disney World!  I thought that I would give you the best counter service locations in each theme park, as I can't pick just one.  While in the Magic Kingdom, Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, wins hands down.  It is well worth the wait for one of the tables down in front - the entertainment is, umm, out of this world!  Epcot is home to the Sunshine Season Food Fair, the soaring glass ceiling features floating hot air balloons and more.  You can even take a boat ride on Living with the Land to take a sneak peak where some of this food is grown!  Over at Disney's Animal Kingdom, you can dine with the dinos at Restaurantosaurus.  It is meant to resemble a dig site and your little one will love all of the cool relics to look at.  Finally, it doesn't get much better than eating pizza at Toy Story Pizza Planet.  This pizzeria is straight out of the movie - be sure to look for the delivery truck out front!  To see menus for these restaraunts and more, please visit and have fun planning!

    Much pixie dust,
