    We are going to Disney this June with our 4 kids, ages 2-8. Any recommendations on places to eat that will please an 8 year old son? Him and his dad will already be dining at T-REX while the girls and I are at Cinderella's Castle. Any other suggestions?

    Hi Kelly!  Sometimes it seems like with all the hoopla about the Princesses, the boys are sometimes forgotten.  But have no fear - there are lots of dining options that will appeal to the masculine members of your family!  Here's a few that come to mind for me.  First, The Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort.  Your men will have a rootin' tootin' good time, with servers that may say or do crazy things,  stick-pony rides and entertainment  'aplenty!  (And make sure you tell them to ask for some ketchup!)  Food is plentiful, with lots of delicious options for both adults and kids.  Second, my family loves the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Imagine dining in a car, while viewing clips from old Sci-Fi movies in a setting that really makes you feel you are at a drive-in under the stars.  Yummy food and servers on roller-skates make this a very fun dining experience.  Finally, the ultimate male-oriented dining venue in my opinion, has to be ESPN Club at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. TV's throughout, even in the bathroom, and they typical chicken wings and burgers make this a place that all the boys love to hang out at - and after they're done eating, they can head right next door to the huge arcade for a little extra fun!

    I hope this gives you some ideas for your husband and son, and don't worry - if you and the girls decide to join them,  I know you will all have fun!  Let me know if I can help you with any other questions you have. 

    Have a magical day!
