    Our group: 6 adults (2 elderly) & 9 children - 4 boys, ages 12-18, 5 girls, 8-13. Check in & eat dinner 8pm 6/10, Out with breakfast 9am 6/15 with 3 or 4 days in park. Where shall we eat those out of park meals? Top ideas for in park activities?

    Hi Heidi!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I would suggest one of the following for dinner given the ages of the children:
    • Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge
    • Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club
    • T-Rex in Downtown Disney
    • Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney
    • Ohana in the Polynesian Resort
    • Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort

    For your last breakfast, you might want to consider a Disney Dining Experience that might be fun for the older children.  If you do, I would suggest 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian.  Otherwise, I suggest going to Kona Cafe for breakfast.

    For your days in the parks, you definitely want to hit all four theme parks as all four theme parks have attractions suitable for the entire family.  The older children will probably love Disney's Hollywood Studios the best if they are into thrill rides, so make sure you set aside one full day for that park. 

    Our responses are limited in length, but I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
