    Hi! We're going to Disney World in April and are traveling with a 5 yr. old (girl) and a 3 yr. old (boy). We have reserved Cinderella's Royal Table, Chef Mickey's, Coral Reef, and Tony's Town Square. What other dining experiences do we not want to miss?

    Those are some great dining choices that you already have. For the best answer here, I went to the experts, my own kids, and asked their advice.
    •  Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom. The kids love interacting with Pooh and his friends and the ability to pick their own food at the buffet is a big hit. 
    • Sci-Fi at Hollywood Studios. The restaraunt is designed like you are eating at a drive-in movie theater and your table is actually a replica of a car complete with car-hop. The real draw here is the atmosphere. There is a large movie screen that shows a running loop of clips from old science fiction and horror movies along with an occasional cartoon. Don't worry though, the clips are not scary.
    • Teppan Edo located in the Japan World Showcase at Epcot. This restaraunt has delicious choices prepared in front of you on a teppan grill by a juggling chef. The entertainment of watching the chefs perform keeps my kids entertained throughout the entire meal.
    • The new T-Rex restaraunt at Downtown Disney. The kids like the numerous choices that are offered on the kids menu. The big thing here is all the gigantic moving dinosaurs that are dining with you. Each room has an amazing design and feel to it and the kids love watching the meteor show hit. After your meal there is an attached Build-a-Dino where the kids could create and purchase their own take home dino pet.
    • Last on their list is a must for a quick bite or an afternoon snack.....Beaches and Cream soda shop at Beach Club resort. This old fashioned soda shop has a small menu of sandwiches and burgers but the reason to come here is the ice cream. The sundaes are huge and the word scrumptious does not even begin to describe them. Stop in and have a kitchen sink!

    Hope some of these become family favorites for you!
