    Hi Miranda!

    It sounds like you're already off to a great start with your dining choices!
    'Ohana for dinner and Akershus for breakfast are amongst my top favourites, hands down!

    If you're traveling with children who are Chip and Dale and Mickey Mouse fans, you may love Garden Grill. My family's other favourite dinner locations at Epcot park are Coral Reef, Teppan Edo and Via Napoli. These locations do not have characters, however Teppan Edo puts on quite a show for you as your meal is prepared by an entertaining teppanyaki chef right before your eyes!

    Sci-Fi Dine In Theater is a fun atmosphere with a very casual menu. We enjoy this location for lunch over at Disney's Hollywood Studios. My number one pick there for dinner however is Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. My kids absolutely LOVE the spaghetti and meatball cupcake and my husband can't get enough of the steak served with a side of mac 'n cheese! Mmmm!

    If you're visiting Animal Kingdom Park, consider a dinner reservation at Boma for dinner at the end of your day. Located nearby in the Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort, it's another fabulous meal to try. Arrive early and explore the lodge's beautiful lobby and the Arusha Rock overlook with beautiful, elevated views of the savannah.

    A few other fun character meals to try out are the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast or Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner, both at the Grand Floridian's 1900 Park Fare. We also enjoy Cape May Cafe's character breakfast, a perfect start to a day spent at Epcot or Hollywood Studios. Another great place to visit is Downtown Disney. Some of my family's favourite dining there includes Paradiso 37 and Fulton's Crab House.

    Can you tell that I LOVE Disney Dining? ;)
    Please feel free to write me back if you'd like further details about any of these recommendations Miranda!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
