    What are some of the best restaurants and dining experiences to do with small children? Our son will be 5 1/2 at the time of our trip in May 2013- it's our first trip and we don't want to miss anything! Also- which dining plan is best?

    Hi Melissa,

    I highly recommend Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  It is a buffet-style restaurant which serves breakfast and dinner.  I know your little Pirate would love to get autographs and take pictures with Mickey and friends.  If you choose this restaurant for breakfast, please don't forget to partake in the delightful Mickey-shaped waffles!

    Another favorite in my family is The Crystal Palace which is located in the Magic Kingdom.  It's also a buffet-style restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  This is Winnie the Pooh and friends playhouse so I know you would also enjoy it here, too. 

    I always like to go with the Basic Dining Plan.  It includes one Table-Service meal, one Quick-Service meal and one snack per person for each night of your package.  This is just the right amount of food for my family.  I hope this helps!

    Have a magical day!
