    Hi moms! Where is a great, fun and affordable place to dine after 5 with the kids ages 14,11, 6 and 3 at DW?

    Hi, LaDonna!  There are so many dining options in Walt Disney World - every theme park has restaurants, the resort hotels have restaurants, and Downtown Disney has restaurants!  You'll have plenty of options!

    For something quick, reasonable, and delicious, check out two of my favorite Downtown Disney locations - Wolfgang Puck Express and the Earl of Sandwich.  The woodfire pizzas are a family favorite for my kids at Wolfgang Puck Express, and for under $15, I can easily share a pizza among my three girls.  For just around $6, any one of the Earl of Sandwich fantastic sandwiches will feed two of my kids, especially if I add a bag of chips.

    Also in Downtown Disney are the Rainforest Cafe (with a second location at Disney's Animal Kingdom) and T-Rex restaurant.  These are really awesome places to eat, and kids meals are under $10.  The portions here are very generous, so if your two older kids can agree, sharing is definitely an option here.

    Inside the theme parks, you might want to check out the 50s Prime Time Cafe or the Sci Fi Dine In at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The Sci Fi is set up like a drive in movie theater - complete with cars!  Kids meals at both locations are under $10, and you can find burgers and sandwiches at Sci Fi under $15, and complete platters under $20 at Prime Time.

    My girls love a hot dog at Casey's Corner at the Magic Kingdom, or the Biergarten at EPCOT, which is a buffet with an oompah band performance.  Buffets are always great options, as you can sometimes skip a meal in favor of an afternoon snack, then enjoy more buffet options.  Many of the buffets feature characters, which add to the experience!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
