    We're heading to WDW in June with 6 adults, a 3 yr old and two 2 yr olds. What would be the best place to have a dinner in Epcot? The kids can get a little antsy, so a table service that would keep them and us grown ups entertained would be great!

    Epcot is my favorite park for dining! Let me give you a few choices to see what suits you best. When thinking about the food, bear in mind that all the restaurants at Epcot offer some type of children's menu, so don't be concerned about the food seeming too "foreign" to the little ones.

    Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion. Delicious kebabs and couscous for the grown-ups. Belly dancing to keep the kids, and dads ;-), entertained. Several times during the lunch and dinner hours, a traditional Moroccan band plays (covers up any kid noise) and then the belly dancer will invite guests to learn a few moves. Watching two-year-olds try to belly dance makes for some awesome photo ops.


    Beirgarten in the Germany pavilion. Similar situation, with a live band that plays (here it's German folk music). There is a dance floor. All the kids in the room love to go there and spin around to the music.

    Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion. The chef cooks right on the table. They will make a volcano out of an onion to entertain the kids and will often tell kid-friendly jokes while they are cooking.

    Coral Reef in the Living Seas pavilion. You're dining in a room with a giant aquarium. One entire wall of the restaurant is live fish swimming by.

    Garden Grill in the Land pavilion. A character meal with a twist (literally). The entire restaurant revolves on a giant turntable around various scenes from the Living with the Land ride. How cool is that!

    Hope you have a great trip to Epcot.
