    Our 1st Family Vacation=) Sept 12-16 with basic dining plan. 3 girls ages 4-9 &1 boy age 5.Where would a vet to the parks recommend we use our sit down meals at each day at each park that will make all the kids pretty happy. I want to book at the 180 d

    Hi Telesia! Disney World has lots of restaurants that make the kids happy! 

    At Magic Kingdom, I recommend Crystal Palace. Pooh and friends stop by your table at this buffet, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kids will love seeing the characters, especially Tigger who may lead them on a parade through the restaurant, and the food here is arguably one of the best buffets at Disney. My other recommendation would be Cinderella's Royal Table because I know your three girls would love dining in the Castle with the princesses, but a meal here would use two of your table-service credits, so you'll have to decide if you want to splurge on that.

    At Hollywood Studios, your kids will love the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. At this restaurant, you sit in cars and watch campy vintage drive-in movies while servers on roller skates bring your meals. The food here is not gourmet, but it's satisfying sandwiches, burgers and shakes.

    At Animal Kingdom, consider Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House. Donald Duck and friends make the rounds of the tables here, and you can schedule your meal an hour before the park opens so you'll make the most of your touring time. If you'd rather eat lunch, book your meal at Tusker House between 1:00 and 1:45 pm, and you'll receive reserved seating at the 3:15 Finding Nemo -- The Musical. Everyone will be happy when they don't have to wait in line to see this awesome show!

    Since you've made the kids happy at the other parks, I recommend you make Mama happy at Epcot and have lunch at Le Cellier. I love the cheese soup here, and my husband loves the filet. My kids love the pretzel bread they bring to the table.  My other recommendation would be Teppan Edo where you dine on Japanese food cooked tableside by entertaining hibachi chefs.

    Hope your first family vacation is magical!
