    We are coming to WDW for the first time Dec.26, 2011 for 6 days. My head is spinning about making dining reservations. We have 4 adults and 3 boys (10, 6,and 6). What is the easiest way to choose and what do you recommend that the boys will love?

    December in Walt Disney World is absolutely festive!

    First, you should make an outline of a daily itinerary by planning which days you'll be in each Disney theme park. Then, design your dining plans.

    If you'll be in the Magic Kingdom on a certain day, plan to eat inside the park or at a nearby hotel such as the Contemporary Resort. The Wilderness Lodge is also just a boat ride away!

    When touring the Animal Kingdom, dine in the park or at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    At Epcot, World Showcase has an abundance of dining opportunities. And the Boardwalk, Beach Club and Yacht Club resorts are only a walk away.

    At Hollywood Studios, dine in the park or at the nearby Boardwalk Resort. Walk or take a boat ride there!

    My son enjoys:
    Whispering Canyon Cafe - Wilderness Lodge
    Chef Mickey's - Contemporary
    50s Prime Time Cafe - Hollywood Studios
    Rainforest Cafe - Animal Kingdom
    T-Rex - Downtown Disney

    The restaurants are all about the atmosphere and fun entertainment!
