    We booked our first trip to disneyworld with our two daugthers 10 and 13. We would love to take them to a character dining experience that is age appropriate. Having been to disneyland they have participated in the goofy, mickey & cinderella fun. Any i

    Hi Sherry,

    I have a tween living at my house too so I'd be happy to recommend an age-appropriate character dining experience for your daughters.  Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with the classic American buffet at Chef Mickey's on the fourth floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Not only do you get to dine while the "big cheese" and his friends come by to visit, you also get to watch the monorail glide by every once in awhile.  It is a high energy fun experience.  If your girls like Stitch, then take them to my other favorite character dining experience at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Resort.  The food is great and the characters are mischievous!

    If you would prefer to experience character dining in one of the theme parks, then make reservations for the imaginative buffet at Tusker House in Disney's Animal Kingdom or dine with Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom.  My eleven-year-old son loves all of these restaurants! 

    As soon as you have decided where you'd like to dine, call (407) WDW-DINE to make your reservations. 

    Wishing a Disney vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
