    Hi Doug, I have enjoyed reading your answers and I have a question I was hoping you could help. I am a single mom taking my four boys (19, 12, 12 and 11) for the first time to Disney World in August staying at BCR what is best idea for a special dinner?


    Boy, that is a tough call (no pun intended!). Most entertainment dinners are targeted for younger kids. Here are a few ideas, mostly near the Beach Club Resort. Read through them and let me know if any of them are on the mark, or if you need more suggestions. 

    • Biergarten (Epcot)
      • This restaurant at dinner does a nice job of channeling a Bavarian beer hall, but without overplaying the beer factor. The entertainment is lively, the buffet-style food is good, and the ambiance is a festive and warm one.
    • Teppan Edo (Epcot)
      • Think Benihanas, with your own table chef chopping and flinging food.
    • 50's Prime Time Cafe (Hollywood Studios)
      • The cuisine is classic American, and the entertainment is sassy.
    • ESPN Club (BoardWalk)
      • The sports atmosphere may make it work for four teenage boys.
    • Whispering Canyon Cafe (Wilderness Lodge)
      • While the interactive fun is often more for young children, the overall festiveness of this western-themed dinner makes it a good choice near the Magic Kingdom.
    • Raglan Road or House of Blues (Downtown Disney)
      • Both good choices at Downtown Disney.

    Let me know more about the boys likes/dislikes in your next question!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
