    I didn't realize you had to book restaurants so far in advance, everything I look at is booked. Is there less popular restaurant that we could still do a character dining experience at? My kids are 5 a 9 and are still deciding on which parks other than MK

    Hello Jen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    Many Guests, myself included choose to make Advanced Dining Reservations at Disney restaurants up to 180 days in advance of arrival at Walt Disney World Resort - however... it certainly doesn't have to be that way for every family! 
    My top advice would be to keep trying via My Disney Experience or by speaking with a helpful Cast Member on the Dining Reservations phone number contained within this Walt Disney World Phone Directory link to secure Advanced Dining Reservations for your desired dining locations both before arriving at Walt Disney World Resort and even after arrival; because you just never know when a little Disney magic is going to happen!
    As I'm not sure when you're arriving or which restaurants you've already tried I'd like to share some of my own families favourite Disney character meals - 
    The Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot; meet Farmer Mickey and pals in this unique revolving eatery. 
    Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground; hoe-down fun with Mickey, Minnie and friends. 
    Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort; begin your Disney day with Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast. 
    I'm sure whatever is finally decided upon you'll enjoy a magical family visit to Walt Disney World Resort making memories with your 2 darling Mouseketeers which are sure to last an entire lifetime.
    Have a great Disney day.
