    Hello Doug, saw your answer about Raglan Road being on the DP and a great place to eat. Is it suitable for kids age 7 & 8 or which other DTD place would you recommend for either a QS or TS. Thank you.


    I certainly do think that for the most part this restaurant is a perfectly acceptable place to take children. I would probably not want to be in the main dining room of the restaurant late at night (say, after 9 pm) as the entertainment (live Irish band and step dancer) and adjoining bar area can make it a bit louder and rowdier. But even at that time the side rooms can still be cozy, appropriate places for a family to eat.

    And certainly for the rest of the day you should find it to be a great place to take kids. It is also nice to have somewhere to eat that offers some dining variety and a staff that is willing to help in making a meal more kid-friendly.

    As for other Downtown Disney locales, I like Earl of Sandwich for counter service. Wolfgang Puck's Cafe and Bongo's are also good table service options, though with Bongo's you probably also want to be out by 9pm or later.

    Paradiso 37 seems nice too, but I have not eaten there very often. You might consider it as well for the exotic foods and great waterside setting.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
