    My husband and I are planning on taking our son to WDW when he is 3 years old. We know that we would like to make reservations for breakfast at Chef Mickey's. What are some other table service restaurants that he might like?


    That is a great question!

    There are many fun dining experiences throughout Walt Disney World, both with and without characters. A mistake my wife and I made in our first trip (when my youngest was just a month shy of her 3rd birthday) was we had one of these "high stimulus" meals ever day. Too much. But I think one every other day would be a good target.

    Character Meals
    So Chef Mickey's is a good one, and Tusker House is a long-time favorite for our family. Beyond those, you might enjoy Crystal Palace if your son wants to meet Winnie the Pooh.

    Other Fun Meals
    I think that the Hoop Dee Doo Review and Whispering Canyon Cafe are fun options. 'Ohana at dinner is good, and 50s Prime Time Cafe can make for a fun time. Within Epcot I would say that Biergarten may be a bit too busy for him, but Via Napoli has a nice 'bustling' feel to it without being overwhelming. And it is the best pizza on property.

    So there are several choices. If I had to pick the 5 I would take a child to, they would be Chef Mickey's, Tusker House, Hoop Dee Doo Review, Whispering Canyon Cafe, and 50s Prime Time Cafe.

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
