    Hi Kirsten, Question about Downtown Disney dining...there are about 4 families wanting to meet for dinner. Can I please suggest a restaurant that's suitable for adults and kids ages 8-16 years old? Also, should we reserve and how long in advance? Thanks!

    Hello Renee!

    So nice to have you visit me again!

    I can't think of a better meeting place than Downtown Disney to enjoy great food, fantastic shopping and entertainment galore all in one place! Your families will have a fabulous evening for sure!

    Since you're a large group wishing to dine together, you'll want to reserve as far in advance as possible. You can do so online via the links that I'll provide you below or you call call in at (407) WDW-DINE and have a Disney Dining Cast Member assist you in finding the right reservation(s) for your party size.

    My top picks which are casual in atmosphere with great menu options for all tastes and ages include:

    Paradiso 37 A Taste of the Americas is my new, #1 favourite choice for family dining at Downtown Disney. The vast, varied menu is outstanding and the service has been outstanding. I've dined there twice in the past 7 months and I'm already dying to return again! For an incredible appetizer, the Crazy Corn is a "must-try!" Although this menu isn't yet on the Disney website, try visiting allearsnet.com, a Disney-Fan Site not affiliated with Disney which posts very current information. You'll find full menu listings on this site.

    Another great choice is Wolfgang Puck Cafe. Located in Downtown Disney West Side, the vibrant atmosphere here is another sure-fire hit for your large group. You'll find the full menu online right on the Disney Dining pages. Here you'll enjoy everything from an amazing sushi bar to wood-fired pizza, salads and decadent desserts that the kids will enjoy watching be prepared at the open dessert kitchen.

    Both restaurants recommended also feature childrens' menus.

    Wishing you a simply Magical evening with your group at Downtown Disney Renee!
