    Dinners away from hotel? Going to WDW with husband and kids ( 8, 5, 2). We are staying for 5 nights at the GF, and currently all but one of our dinners are planned at the hotel (no dining plan). Should we go to Disney Springs or back to parks for dinner?

    Hi, Laura!
    Thanks for checking in with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love the restaurant options at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, but I also have enjoyed some fantastic food options at each of Walt Disney World Resorts' four parks. When my family visits, we like to stay in a park all day. We plan our visit based on which park we want to visit and make reservations for one table service meal - either lunch or dinner. There are excellent quick service meals in each park, in all resorts and at Disney Springs.

    My family may be a bit hardcore when it comes to spending time in the parks, but I wouldn't limit meals to the Grand Floridian.

    I know you're going to have an unforgettable visit to Walt Disney World! Feel free to come back to the Moms Panel and ask me any other questions that pop up before you arrive!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
