    We are currently looking at dining reservations and I am looking for some suggestions. I will be traveling with an 8 year old and we would like to try some new and fun dinner/lunch options.

    Hi, Stephanie!

    Your 8 year old will find dining to be so much fun in Walt Disney World.  Here are some suggestions:

    -Chef Mickey's (breakfast or dinner buffet in the Contemporary).  Dine with Mickey, Goofy, and all their pals!
    -Whispering Canyon Café (I suggest dinner.  Located at Wilderness Lodge).  Family fun, silly atmosphere.  Dinner served family style. Make sure to ask for ketchup!
    -Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre at Hollywood Studios.  Enjoy your meal in your very own convertible while movie clips play up on the drive-in movie screen.
    -Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom.  All day buffet hosted by Pooh and Friends.
    -Teppan Edo in Japan Pavilion in Epcot.  Watch your personal Teppan chef prepare a delicious meal in front of your eyes. 
    -Rainforest Café.  Two great locations:  Animal Kingdom or Downtown Disney. 

    I hope this is a good start.  If you need more ideas let me know!  Happy dining!
