    We are coming to WDW December 23, 09-January 3, 10. Our children will be 10 yrs. and 18 mos. old (both boys). We have purchased the dining option. What dining experiences would we enjoy best as a family given the wide age spread of the kids?


    Having a 10-year-old who may be hitting the "cool" stage and a toddler who is just getting to the right age for Character Experiences can be tough! Here are a few suggestions:

    • Whispering Canyon Cafe: the corny jokes will keep your older son entertained on a different level than your youngest.
    • Biergarten: My boys love the buffet and the floor show. Take your little one out on the dance floor--or encourage his brother--and enjoy the Chicken Dance!
    • Coral Reef: the fish tank that covers the entire length of one wall of the restaurant still mezmerizes me. Your older son will enjoy ordering from the grownups menu!
    • Chef Mickey's for brunch: Don't know anyone, any age who wouldn't love a Mickey waffle! Caters to any age that loves Mickey and the gang--and isn't as juvenile as Pooh & Friends at Crystal Palace or Stitch at Polynesian.
    • Sci-Fi Dinner Theatre: a junior-high guy's memory maker. Your toddler will think it's fun to eat in a car, but your older fella will enjoy the movies! Order the Reuben!
    • 'Ohana: Both your kids can be a part of the floor show: learning the hula and limbo.
    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
