    What are the best dining options at Magic Kingdom?

    Hi, Sylina!  I guess the answer to this question depends on what type of dining experiences you are looking for, and what your family preferences are.  I will run down a few of our family's favorite dining experiences at the Magic Kingdom.

    The brand new Be Our Guest restaurant, opened in December, has quickly become one of our favorites.  It is a table service restaurant at dinner, but lunch is more of a counter service experience.  You'll eat in one of the rooms of Beast's castle, and the food has a French flair.  Lunch features such menu items as Coq Au Vin, quiche, and a delicious turkey sandwich on a warm baguette.  Dinner options include ratatouille, steak, pork chops, and a delicious shrimp and scallops dish.

    For character dining, we love meeting with Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace (characters are subject to change).  This is a buffet dining experience, and you'll find a wide variety of menu items.  A special kids' height buffet is also available here, with some kid friendly items such as chicken nuggets and mac and cheese.

    Cosmic Ray's is a one stop counter service location.  With something for everyone, this restaurant features "bays", each serving a different family friendly favorite.  You'll find rotisserie chicken, burgers, pulled pork, salads, and sandwiches.  Our favorite counter service is Columbia Harbor House, where you'll find some delicious seafood options.

    I want to mention one other table service option.  Liberty Tree Tavern is a great little location, with a wonderful lunch menu.  Dinner is served family style, and is a selection of traditional favorites, such as turkey, beef and pork.  It's quite good!

    I hope this gives you some delicious options to choose from!
