    Hi! This is our first wdw trip I have a 14 8 7 1 yr old I need one dining option to fit all ages any suggestions? Thanks

    Hi, Dawn!

    I am going to give you 3 options with descriptions, you choose which one you think will suit your children the best!

    CHEF MICKEY'S in the Contemporary is a wonderful character buffet for kids (and adults!) of all ages.  The food is good, the dessert bar the best!  This is a great way to meet Mickey, Goofy, and their pals without waiting in lines at the parks.  Plus, since this is in a resort, not a theme park, you do not need a park ticket. This is a great option for your arrival day so you can get a "taste" of Disney before your vacation really gets rolling.  The Contemporary is just a short walk or monorail ride away from the Magic Kingdom.

    WHISPERING CANYON CAFE is located in the Wilderness Lodge, a short boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. You can order all-you-can-eat skillets or individual dinners off the menu.  Silliness awaits from your over-the-top wait staff.  There are no characters here, unless you count the servers who will truly keep you entertained!

    SCI-FI DINE-IN THEATER is located in Hollywood Studios so park admission is required.  Your family will enjoy dinner while seated in convertibles while old movie clips play up on the big screen.  This is a casual, fun location that the whole family will enjoy.

    For any of these locations, make sure to make Advance Dining Reservations online or by calling (407)WDW-DINE.  If you need more suggestions or more dining information, let  us know! Good luck deciding.
