    Hello! Our family is staying at Disney World in October, is there an opening date for Roundup Rodeo BBQ yet? Also, what are your favorite recommendations for a special/fun dinner at resorts or Disney Springs for kiddos ages 6 & 2.5? Thanks so much!

    Hi, Cara!  Thanks for stopping by with this great question!

    The Walt Disney World Resort offers so many delectable dining options!  The restaurants in the theme parks, resort hotels, and Disney Springs combine delicious food with detailed theming in a way that never fails to make dining a highlight of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    I was so excited when I heard the announcement that a new table-service restaurant is coming to Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  So far, an opening date has not been announced for the new Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant, but be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news.

    In the meantime, if you're looking for a fun dining experience, you can't go wrong with a character meal.  There are several character dining experiences located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort in the theme parks and resort hotels.  My family's personal favorite is breakfast at Chef Mickey's.  A character meal is a great way to visit with some of your favorite Disney Pals without having to wait to see them in the theme parks.

    Dinner shows are also great if you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary.  Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue are both options that I think your whole family would enjoy.

    There are countless dining options at Disney Springs, but most kiddos love Rainforest Cafe and T-REX.  After dinner, be sure to stop by Amorette's Patisserie or Goofy's Candy Company for a sweet treat.

    Don't forget that reservations for table-service restaurants are highly recommended and can be made 180 days in advance.  If we can help you with any other vacation planning questions, please visit us again. 

    Have a magical day!
