    Coming to Disney world at the end of April. What are some of the best places to have dinner with a 4 and 8 year old boy?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Jamie!  Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! As a mom of three boys myself, I would love to recommend some of our favorite dining locations! T-REX, A Prehistoric Family Adventure and Rainforest Café located in Downtown Disney both offer themed settings featuring life-size animatronic animals! Rainforest Café has a second location at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. Whispering Canyon Café located in Disney's Wilderness Lodge features a Western-style setting with a rowdy, yet fun atmosphere! My boys love playing at the Lincoln Log table while we wait for our name to be called and the pony stick races at this entertaining dining location. Another family favorite is 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort which features a Polynesian-inspired menu and the delicious food is all-you-care-to-eat and is served family-style.This tropical dining location features live entertainment with coconut races and limbo for the children. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, consider dining at 50's Prime Time Café where all-American favorites are served and guests may experience gentle ribbing if they forget their manners by keeping their elbows on the table or by not eating all their veggies! My children always enjoy the fun antics seen at this popular table-service restaurant!  We also love the table-service restaurants located within the World Showcase at Epcot. Our personal favorites include 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. I would highly recommend that you make Advanced Dining Reservations for any of these dining locations by calling (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. Please don't hesitate to visit me again if you would like any additional dining recommendations. Best wishes for a magical trip, Jamie!
    Bon Appétit,
