    What are your 6 favorite places for dinner that would make for a perfect WDW trip? We have 2 DSs (9 & 11) who arent picky eaters. Any restaurant in all the parks & hotels including Downtown Disney...that participate in the DDP. You rock Amanda!

    Hi Mary! You are so sweet -- thanks so much! I love this question, as dining at Disney is one of my favorite topics! My family finds ourselves returning to certain restaurants on every trip. These are not necessarily the finest dining experiences Disney has to offer, but they are the restaurants we always enjoy, and I think you will too!

    We like to start our vacations at the Wolfgang Puck Cafe. My family loves the wood-fired pizzas and the sushi, and it's fun to stroll around Downtown Disney after we eat. The California Grill in the Contemporary also has wonderful flatbread pizzas and sushi and is a great place to view the Wishes fireworks. Our trips to Epcot always include a stop at the Rose & Crown, where we love the fish and chips and the super-friendly British cast members. Our other Epcot favorite is Le Cellier. The steaks are good, but the cheese soup and pretzel bread are what keep bringing me back there time and again. 'Ohana in the Polynesian has a fun atmosphere for families, and nothing says vacation to me more than a frozen tropical cocktail! The sheer volume of food the server brings to the table always makes me giggle -- you will not leave 'Ohana hungry! For a character meal, we usually pick Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary because my kids love the dessert bar and the napkin-twirling, and I love not waiting in line to see Mickey and friends!

    A few honorable mentions: the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, just because it's cool to eat in a car while watching campy movies; Boma or Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for exotic, African flavors; and the Hoop Dee Doo Revue for an entertaining and filling meal.

    Hope this helps Mary! Come visit me at the Panel again!
