    Going to Disney World in the spring, staying at a Disney Resort w/ a dining plan & park hopper tickets. We'll be staying for a week & in that week the grandparents (GPs) are coming for 3 full days. What dining experiences do you suggest? GP are pic


    Thanks for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and we're happy to help you build your itinerary or answer any questions about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. It sounds like you have a terrific plan, with extended family visiting during your stay. I really think you can't go wrong booking Character Dining experiences with the entire family. Typically the menus offer such a variety of foods, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Dining locations like Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom or Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort come to mind, with expansive buffet selections. Take a look at the Disney Dining page to get an idea of the Character Dining options. It will be essential to book your reservations as early as 180-days in advance. You can do so by clicking the above link or by calling 407-WDW-DINE, 407-939-3463.

    Another resource I can provide is the independent site From the homepage, click, "Walt Disney World," then "Dining" and finally "Menus" to browse just about every menu on Walt Disney World property. 

    Let me know your dates of travel, Resort Hotel selection, and the ages of your children and I'd be happy to offer an itinerary suggestion. 

    Best wishes,
