    My family will be arriving in Orlando around 5p.m on April 3, 2010. We will be staying at the CBR and would like to make dinner reservations somewhere our 6 year old would love and see Wishes. What would your recommend?

    Thanks for writing the panel Anitra! Wishes fireworks at the Magic Kingdom are truly spectacular, and can be seen from the beaches and viewing spots of the surrounding resorts as well as at the Magic Kingdom itself. If you're going into the park, then I recommend dining at the Crystal Palace, where you can enjoy a delicious buffet and spend time with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet.

    Here are some choices at the nearby resorts:

    - 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian offers a character dinner buffet with Cinderella, Prince Charming and her step sisters.  If you prefer a full service dinner,  you might enjoy Narcoossee's, where you can view Wishes as you dine.
    - Ohana's at the Polynesian is a family style restaurant, with lots of entertainment, including hula lessons and coconut races for the kids.
    - Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary resort  is a character buffet with Mickey and his pals.
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge is a fun experience for all, where guests do the hokey pokey and parade around the restaurants on wooden horses.  Be sure your six year old asks for ketchup.
