    Where is a good place to dine for dinner at Magic Kingdom.....not fast food please.

    Hi Donna!

    A good place, if you like buffets, is the Crystal Palace.  However, it's a Character Dining Experience which may or may not be what you are looking for.  Another good place, though it has a limited menu, is Liberty Tree Tavern.  To see the menu of this restaurant, or any other restaurant at Walt Disney World, you can visit the independent website AllEars.Net.  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping up to date with the latest changes at the resort.

    If neither of the above sounds good, then I recommend leaving the Magic Kingdom and going over to one of the Magic Kingdom Resorts for dinner; you can always return to the park afterward, and you don't need the Park Hopper option to do that!  Favorites include Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge, Ohana and Kona Cafe in the Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian Cafe in the Grand Floridian.  The Grand Floridian Cafe is particular easy to get into in my opinion.

    Another option, though it takes much longer, is to go to Trail's End at Fort Wilderness.  You can catch a boat outside the Magic Kingdom and the whole journey takes about 20 minutes, though it's a very nice and relaxing and trip.  It's one of my favorite options if we want to take an extended break from the Magic Kingdom; it's particularly nice on a hot summer day!

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
