    Hi Moms! Bit of an odd question. We're visiting Aug'13. My girls (16 and 18) don't like dressed up characters but I want to take them for a character-style meal! Can you suggest any good restaurants that have great theming alone? We have the DP.

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel, Emma!  How exciting you will be visiting Walt Disney World in 2013! If you are looking for a Character Dining Experience with great theming, I would recommend Cinderella's Royal Table located in Magic Kingdom Park or Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall located in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. Both of these Character Dining Experiences provide fairytale dining where you will be greeted table side by several Disney Princesses. For a non-Character Dining Experience, I would highly recommend the new Be Our Guest Restaurant located in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. I got a firsthand look at Be Our Guest Restaurant last month and loved the attention to detail throughout this breathtaking new dining location. Follow the link I have provided to learn more. 'Ohana located in Disney's Polynesian Resort offers tropical theming and features a Polynesian-inspired menu where delicious dishes are served family-style and is an all-you-care-to-eat restaurant. In Epcot, you will find many spectacular dining locations with unique theming located throughout the World Showcase. My personal favorites are Teppan Edo located in the Japan Pavilion, Le Cellier Steakhouse located in the Canada Pavilion, and Les Chefs de France located in the France Pavilion. For a fun dining experience with great theming, consider 50's Prime Time Cafe located in Disney's Hollywood Studios. This dining location features a TV-themed setting where you will enjoy fun antics by the waiters and waitresses as you are encouraged to mind your manners. I hope this helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back if you would like any additional dining recommendations. Best wishes for a Magical trip, Emma!
    Bon Appétit,
