    FINALLY booked, after 3 yrs! Sept 12-18 & are staying at Caribbean B.R. Now I need help w dinner reservations, we got the Magic your way FREE dining! So I need 6 sit down restaurants! I do want to do 1or2 character dinners. 3&8 yr old boys...where?

    Hi Angie!

    Congratulations on your trip! Furthermore, a big congrats on the Free Dining! I love a good deal (and extra money in the pocket :-)

    Here are a few of our family's favorite eateries (son and daughter, ages 4 and 8, respectively):

    Coral Reef at Epcot: Good food, good service, great ambiance. The super-sized aquarium is the star of the show. Ask to sit close to the aquarium if seating is available.

    Chef Mickey's at Contemporary resort: Probably top character experience with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto. Good family experience and buffet.

    50's Prime Time Cafe' at Hollywood Studios: Great experience. Your host will keep you entertained throughout.

    Whispering Canyon Cafe' at Wilderness Lodge: Another fun experience. Great ribs here. Can get rowdy (in a good way). Make sure to ask for ketchup while there...

    Garden Grill at Epcot: Chip N Dale and Pluto show up: revolving restaurant and all-you-care-to-eat meal.

    Others that come to mind: Breakfast at Ohana's (Polynesian), California Grill at Contemporary (pricey but very memorable), Cape May at Beach Club

    Hope that helps some. May you and family have the "Time of Your Life!"
