    I am going to Disney with 4 boys ages 8-5 and 2 girls, 7 and 1. We were looking at Garden Grill and Akershus at Epcot for character meals. We might only make it to Epcot 1 day so I have to pick. One adult want to see Chip N' Dale at some point. Help?

    Hi Kimberly,

    If you only have one day at Epcot, and have a mix of boys and girls, I would opt for Garden Grill for a character meal.  Dinner here features Farmer Mickey (he's too cute for words!) Pluto, and Chip n' Dale.  I'm guessing all the kids (and adults will love the characters here.)  The food is wonderful, it's super fresh (with some items grown onsite at the Land Pavillion) and is served family-style, which makes it a great choice for large families/groups.  Akershus is a princess dining location, and I'm guessing the boys in your clan would prefer the other venue.  If you have an opportunity to do both, then I think Akershus is a fantastic spot.  I had an opportunity to take my niece last summer and she still lists her meals with the princesses as one of her favorite activities of all time!

    Have a magical trip!
