    Hi! We are going to Disney on May 26th- June 1st, what are some of your favorite family restaurants for buffet style or any food types in general.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim. We just love when you stop by!

     There are so many incredible family-friendly Table Service restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort. My family and I have such a hard time choosing which ones to visit with each vacation because we know we can't possibly get to them all! Let's chat about a few of my family's favorites. 

     You can't go wrong with any Character Dining Experience featuring a buffet. These meals are extra great because my family enjoys delicious food AND the company of beloved Disney Characters! The buffets always have lots of options for everyone, even my picky eater. My family's favorite Character Dining Experiences include Chef Mickey's, The Crystal Palace, Hollywood & Vine, and Tusker House Restaurant

     The Walt Disney World Resort is home to some super unique buffets that are sure to be crowd pleasers. Try Boma - Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Themed as an African marketplace, this dining location is beautiful and features diverse options inspired by over 50 African countries. If it sounds too adventurous for you, don't fret! You can be sure to find plenty of American favorites on the buffet too. Another great option is Biergarten Restaurant in World Showcase at Epcot. Here you can enjoy a buffet of traditional German fare and celebrate Oktoberfest with an oompah band! 

     While not a buffet, my family's absolute favorite dining location at the Walt Disney World Resort is Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. We love this restaurant not only for it's incredible food, but also for the fabulous views of the Sunset Savanna. If you visit Sanaa, be sure to order the Indian-Style Bread Service. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

     I hope this was helpful, Kim. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
