    What is the best table service for toddlers/preschoolers i have a large group going 8 kids ages 15,12,11,7,6,4,3,18 months

    Hello Nicole!!

    WOW!!!  Now that group sounds like A LOT of fun!!!!!  You all are going to have the BEST time!

    I would say the best table service dining experiences for toddlers/preschoolers MUST include Disney characters!!!  With that being said, here are my recommendations:

    Magic Kingdom - The Crystal Palace (Character dining with Winnie the Pooh and Friends)

    Hollywood Studios - Hollywood and Vine (Character dining with June and Leo from the Little Einsteins and Handy Manny)

    NOTE: Both of these Character Dining Experiences are buffets.  The positive of a buffet with small children is that you do not have to wait to eat!!  The negative is that adults will be up and down throughout the meal getting all the children their food.   Since we have five kids, we know all too well the positives and negatives of a buffet.  However, my wife and I feel the benefits far outweigh the challenges.

    EPCOT - Royal Banquet Hall Breakfast - (Oh my goodness, this breakfast is AMAZING!!!!  Now, this is a Disney Princess Character Dining Experience; however, the princesses do a great job at relating to boys!  I have two boys, and I have seen this first-hand.)

    I hope this helps in your planning!  If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL Day!!
