    What is a good restaurant to go to in Magic Kingdom for dinner with a 3 year old BOY. Looking under the $$$ range.

    Hi Tara,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Mickey and Minnie Mouse just squealed when they learned that you are bringing a little one to visit them at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Winnie the Pooh and the gang are also anxious to meet your little one at The Crystal Palace. They love to give hugs, sign autographs and pose for pictures. What dinner would be complete without a party line at the end? If your little one loves to dance, he can certainly jump in the line!

    In case you cannot secure a reservation at the Crystal Palace, I suggest Chef Mickey's even though it is not in Magic Kingdom and is right at the $$$ range. Dinner with Mickey and friends is fabulous. From Magic Kingdom, you can just catch the Resort Monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort. Disney's Contemporary Resort is the first stop once you leave Magic Kingdom. Or, you could also walk from Magic Kingdom to Disney's Contemporary Resort. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk.

    If you do decide to visit Chef Mickey's and return to Magic Kingdom after dinner, be sure that you keep track of the time. As it gets closer to fireworks time, it will take longer to get through the crowds. I also suggest that you review the Planning for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones Guide. It may be helpful as you plan your trip.

    Wait! What was that? It looks like Tinker Bell sprinkling pixie dust on your visit!

    I hope you have a magical time Tara!
