    What are the best DDP table service restaurants for kids? I have two boys that will be six and eight years old the oldest is a growing boy who likes to eat. He prefers steak or more filling meals than just the traditional chicken tenders or macaroni. Help!

    Hello Juan!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom´s Panel.

    Walt Disney World dining is a great way to add more magic to a family vacation.

    Character Dining Restaurants feature a really fun setting and lots of food to choose from.  Most character experiences feature some type of buffet style dining, where kids and adults get to hug, laugh and photograph with their favorite Disney character.
    My top four are The Crystal Palace, ´Ohana, The Garden Grill and Tusker House (though quite different).

    There are lots of good and excellent Table Service Restaurants around Walt Disney World Resort.  My most do are Mama Melrose´s Ristorante Italiano and Tony´s Town Square.

    Epcot features lots of different cuisines to experience, that is why I suggest hoping from one Counter Service to another trying as many different dishes as possible.

    At Animal Kingdom we love eating at Flame Tree Barbecue - fun food and awesome setting, watch out for the birds!

    Some table service restaurants require two (2) meal entitlements per person - from the Dining Plan.
    Most of these Signature Restaurants feature a superb culinary experience, worth the two entitlements.
    I highly recommend California Grill, Artist Point, Jiko - The Cooking Place, Yachtsman Steakhouse and Le Cellier Steakhouse.
    Most Signature Restaurants feature a full kids menu.

    There are lots of restaurants to choose from, so take some time to know which are a better option for your family.  You can even see the prices on the menus.

    Glad to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
