    Hi, my family is visiting Magic Kingdom for the first time in May with our 3yr old daughter & 8mo old son. We opted for 1 of the Dining Plans. Any recommendations on "sit down" places to eat that will be manageable with such young children? N

    Hi Rosa!

    I love to eat and my son loves characters so a character dining experience is always my "go to" preference when traveling with my little one.

    Inside Magic Kingdom park my favorite spot for a fun and relaxing meal is The Crystal Palace.  That was actually my first ever character dining experience when I first started visiting Walt Disney World Resort many years ago, and it was also my son’s first.  My son just loves dining with Winnie the Pooh and his Hundred-Acre Wood friends!  

    But, with a little Princess, I wouldn’t hesitate booking a fun breakfast, lunch or dinner at Cinderella’s Royal Table.  Could you imagine dining among Disney royalty?  Even my son has a blast here and mom and dad enjoy the food too.  I took my niece here to celebrate her 3rd birthday and to this day, she still talks about it!

    If you are looking for other options, Chef Mickey’s is located inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort, just a short walk or monorail ride from Magic Kingdom Park.  You will be able to dine with Mickey and some of his friends and eat some delicious food too! 

    These are just a few of my favorite dining locations with little ones but the possibilities are endless. 
    As a friendly reminder, reservations are very popular for a lot of the table service restaurants on property, so be sure to make yours online or by calling (407) 939-1947. 

    If you have any other questions, please let me know! I would love to help!
    Happy planning!
