    Booked our 2nd trip for Sept/12 First trip in Dec/11 we had ADR at Teppan, Crystal Palace, 1900 PF, Sci-Fi, 50's PT, WCC, Chef Mickeys.. Would LOVE some suggestions for meals this time! It will be me (mom!) and DD13 and DS7! We have dining plan! Thanks!:)

    Hi, Megan!  What awesome restaurants you chose for your first trip!  You had a great variety and some wonderful experiences!

    My gang likes Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  It's a buffet meal with some breakfast favorites as well as some things with an African flair.  This is also a character meal, which makes it even that much more special!

    You might want to check out T-Rex at Downtown Disney.  Similar to Rainforest Cafe in terms of layout, the theme here is all Dinosaur.  It's great fun to sit with dinosaurs as you eat!

    The character buffet at 'Ohana at the Polynesian takes place at breakfast and usually features Lilo and Stitch (characters are subject to change).  This is a family style, all you care to eat meal, and my girls have always loved the parade and the character interaction.

    My mouth is watering just thinking of the beef short ribs at Sanaa at Kidani Village at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas.  From some of the tables here, you can see the animals out on the savanna, which makes for a very entertaining meal sometimes!  You don't have to be an adventurous eater to enjoy a meal here.  You'll find standards like strip steak and chicken, but the African/Indian flavors are amazing.

    I don't want you to think I only know the buffets (although I admit I've almost never met a buffet I didn't like!), but the Biergarten in Germany is so much fun!  It is a typical biergarten type layout, and you will think you're celebrating Oktoberfest!  My kids love the live music that takes place here during your dinner.

    I hope your second trip is even more magical than your first!
