    Coming to WDW with DS 11 and 9 and DD 4. We are bringing grandparent's with us also! We need recommendations for dining reservation. Coming in Nov for 8 days! The only must do is CRT. Is Akershus worth doing if we do CRT?

    Hi, Tiffany!  I LOVE traveling with grandparents!  You get excitement at two opposite ends of the human spectrum!

    I would say if you are doing Cinderella's Royal Table, you may not need to also do Akershus.  For other character meals, you may want to do Chef Mickey's or Crystal Palace for some other characters.  

    There are other cool meals to do that are fun for kids and adults.  Check out the 50s Prime Time Cafe.  The grandparents may recall their own kitchens from when they were kids, and your kids might enjoy sitting in "Mom's" kitchen, especially if Grandpop gets reprimanded for not eating his vegetables!  Another neat dining experience is the Sci Fi Dine in, where you are in convertible cars and watching B movie trailers on the drive in screen.

    My gang loves Whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge.  There's some great fun to be had here, and for a unique experience, try the buffet at Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  You can see the animals before or after your meal.

    If you are looking for a grown up night out, Artist Point at Wilderness Lodge is a favorite, or maybe Citricos or Narcoosee at The Grand Floridian.  

    I hope your whole family has a magical, memory filled vacation!
