    What are your favorite restaurants (on the dining plan) to take younger children to that still have great food for adults? We're going to Disney World with a 2 1/2 year old and I want to make advanced dining reservations, but am overwhelmed by the choices

    Hi, Lauryn!

    I am familiar with most of the WDW restaurants and I am still overwhelmed by the choices!  There are just so many great choices, so little time!   Remember that with your 2 year old, he/she will eat free if sharing off your plate. This works great at buffets and family style since these are all-you-care-to-eat. 

    Some favorite locations that will be great with your little Mouseketeer!

    -Chef Mickey's for dinner (buffet at the Contemporary, featuring Mickey and Pals!)
    -Cape May for dinner (seafood buffet at Beach Club)
    -Crystal Palace for breakfast or lunch (all day buffet at the Magic Kingdom - hosted by Pooh and Friends!) 
    -50's Prime Time Café at Hollywood Studios
    -Chefs de France in Epcot (no worries - they have chicken fingers and fries!)
    -Plaza Restaurant (great sandwich shop in Magic Kingdom. Awesome desserts!)

    This list should get you started!  Look up the menus at and see what you think!  If you need more ideas, just let me know! As the mom of two kids, I know how you feel, so keep me posted!
