    I have a very good friend who recommended I contact you. We are heading down on the 15th of April and I am looking for some eating suggestions. We would prefer to skip buffets if possible. I have two boys 9 and 7 so we can skip Princesses.

    Hi Kathryn!

    I'm so honoured that a friend recommended you - and that you've come to visit me!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Feel free to write me back as often as you wish and I'll be pleased to assist you in any way that I can.

    How exciting that you're headed to Walt Disney World very soon!
    You'll definitely want to secure some dining reservations prior to your arrival. You can do so via the Walt Disney World website under the Dining section, or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.

    I have an 11 year old son who has grown up at Walt Disney World and has many favourite dining locations. Like you, I'm not particularly a fan of buffets, so I have no problem skipping them in the recommendation list!

    A few of my son's favourite "fun for boys" dining, and other family favourites include:

    - Whispering Canyon Cafe in Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort
    - Teppan Edo at Epcot's Japan
    - Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater in Hollywood Studios
    - Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort (Character Dining with Mickey and friends)
    - The Garden Grill Restaurant in Epcot's The Land Pavilion (Character Dining with Mickey, Chip 'n Dale)
    - Via Napoli in Epcot's Italy for the best pizza on earth
    - Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano in Hollywood Studios (boys will love the Spaghetti & Meatball cupcake!)
    - 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Resort

    Check out some of these great spots' menus online, and check for availability as soon as you can.
    If you have additional questions about these locations, or about other aspects of your upcoming visit, please feel free to write me back! I'd love to hear from you again Kathryn!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
