    i am going to disney with 5 teens on 3/19 for a birthday which is better for a birthday dinner a Tepan Edo at Epcot or the Luau at Polynesian?

    Hi, Lily!  I have to say, you are a brave woman to tackle the theme parks with five teenagers!  My oldest daughter is 18, and I still get dizzy recalling a couple of trips I took with her and her friends before she left for college!  Whew!

    I think if I were you, I'd ask the birthday person where they'd prefer their birthday dinner.  I asked my oldest her preference, and hands down, it was Teppan Edo.  She loves the interaction with the hibachi chef and said she would much rather leave there and watch Illuminations to cap off a special occasion.  I then turned to my 15 year old nephew who said the Spirit of Aloha show at the Polynesian would be his choice because the show was "awesome" and the food "rocks".  Of course, it was not his birthday when we went, and I don't know that he would have been so willing to hop up on the stage when they invited those celebrating a birthday to join the cast!

    I don't think you can go wrong with either location, but I might leave it up to the birthday teen to make the final decision. 

    I hope the birthday celebration is magical!
