    We have had the good fortune of taking our "little ones" to Disneyworld several times over the years and are planning our next trip this month with our now 8, 11, and 13 year olds. Any ideas as to dining and fun activities for this age group? Tha

    Hi, Katie!  Your children are nearly the same ages as my sons, so I'm letting my oldest help to answer this to get a little "expert" opinion thrown in!  If you don't mind, I'm going to list his suggestions for great dining and fun:
    - Sci-Fi Dine In at Disney's Hollywood Studios (sit in cars and watch old movies while eating)
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge (ask for ketchup!)
    - Cape May Cage at the Beach Club (Mom never lets us order seafood and prime rib)
    - Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club for the Kitchen Sink (a HUGE dessert served in a sink!)
    - Casey's Corner at the Magic Kingdom (hot dogs/fries and old Disney cartoons)
    - Bomas at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (our family's favorite)
    - Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kingdom and Downtown Disney (I think this will be replaced as a favorite when TRex opens in Downtown Disney)
    - Also, water parks, miniature golf, hidden mickeys, The Boneyard at Animal Kingdom,  boat/bike rentals, and of course, all the rides!!!  I hope this helps!  Kara
