    what is best place to eat with kids at magic kingdom? I am trying to decide if I am allowed to bring my own food or buy from the dining places at the park , in case I am not allowed to bring the food in.

    Hi Ravi, thanks for stopping by with your question.
    There are many good places you can eat with your kids at Magic Kingdom Park. If you are thinking of a Character Dining Experience, I highly recommend The Crystal Palace. A very good buffet restaurant, offering a great variety of food to please everyone in your party. You will have the chance to meet Winnie The Pooh and some of his friends while you dine – such a magical experience. Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
    If you prefer a “quick-service” restaurant type, my family’s favorite one is Columbia Harbour House, located at Liberty Square, right in front of Haunted Mansion. I usually get their Grilled Salmon, it’s delicious! Located in Fantasyland, Pinocchio Village Haus is another very good place to eat and relax. They have awesome flatbreads. If you decide to choose one of these options, or any other you prefer, restaurants will always have kids’ meals to offer. 
    If you prefer, you can bring your own drink and food to Disney Theme Parks, such as snacks or food that do not require heating. However, alcoholic beverages and glass containers are not allowed.
    Hope this information helps your planning. Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!
