    Coming to WDW in Sept w/ 7 adults and an almost 3yo. The adults want to take advantage of all the great TS options but little one has a hard time sitting still through a meal and often wants to get up and walk around. Any advice? 1st trip w/ kids!

    Hi Mary!

    I can totally sympathize!  Our little ones can have a difficult time sitting still when it's meal time as well, but we've found that at Walt Disney World (especially with Character Dining Experiences), it's not an issue!  

    We also spend a ton of time at the table with our kids coloring the kids menus and checking out the surroundings.  We've also had times where one of us has taken a kid or two out of the restaurant for a run to get the wiggles out as well!  The servers are really great too, and will offer to bring the kids' meals out first, and that can really help to!

    Have a magical vacation!
