    What are the best restaurants for 3 kids ages 3 and younger? Going in November!

    Hi, Melissa!

    There are so many great dining choices in Walt Disney World!  But if I had to narrow it down, here are my top picks for the little Mouseketeers!

    -Chef Mickey's.  Nothing says "Disney" like a buffet at the Contemporary with your best Disney pals!  This location is open for breakfast or dinner.  (first pick:  dinner)

    -Crystal Palace.  Pooh and his silly friends will welcome you at their all-day buffet in the Magic Kingdom.  (first pick:  lunch)

    -Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood Studios serves a buffet breakfast and lunch with your favorites from Disney Junior.   I suggest starting your day with breakfast then head over to Toy Story Mania.  This is a day no 3 year old can resist!   (first pick:  breakfast)

    Obviously, I gave you all character buffets.  When you have little ones, this is such a great way to meet Disney pals without waiting in lines in the parks, plus no waiting for your meals.  Once you are seated, you can head to the buffet lines for all you care to eat.   Also, if your kids are under age 3, they are not charged at buffet locations, so this is a nice savings.  (At all other dining, kids under 3 may share off your plate or you can order them a meal but you will have to pay for it.)

     If you prefer quick service or regular restaurants where you order off a menu, let me know and I can give you some suggestions for those as well.  Remember to make your dining reservations as soon as you hit your 180 day booking window.  Have fun planning your magical vacation!
