    Hi Angela!

    Dining at WDW! One of my favourite topics!

    Given your kids' ages and parks you plan to visit, I'll share with you some of my top picks!

    On Magic Kingdom days, there are several options to start or end your day with great food, with or without characters. My family's #1 ultimate favourite, non-character meal in all of WDW is 'Ohana for dinner at the Polynesian. It's just a short monorail or boat ride from Magic Kingdom Park. There's also a character breakfast at this location with Mickey along with Lilo & Stitch. Another great breakfast or dinner option on an MK day is 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian. Also accessible by boat or monorail, breakfast includes the antics of the hilarious Mad Hatter along with Alice & Mary Poppins. At dinner you'll be visited by Cinderella & Prince Charming along with some of their friends. 1900 Park Fare's meals are both buffet style while 'Ohana is served to you at your table.

    For your Hollywood Studios Day, consider starting the day with either Cape May Cafe for a great buffet breakfast while visiting with Minnie, Donald & Goofy. This is a short boat ride from HS. If you'd prefer to meet some fun characters over a meal while in Hollywood Studios, consider breakfast with the Disney Junior Characters at Hollywood & Vine.

    On your Animal Kingdom Day, start the day with breakfast at Rainforest Cafe by the park gates or if you prefer, enjoy a fun meal together at Downtown Disney at the end of your day. Try a fun, new location like T-REX!

    Those are just a few of the MANY possible dining possibilities around Walt Disney World that I thought might fit your family's dynamics well. Please feel free to come back & visit me any time if you have more questions or would like assistance with your decisions. It's always a pleasure to hear from you!
