    My husband and I are taking our 4yr old and 1yrold to Disney World in May. Where should we dine on Mother’s Day?

    Hi, Joanna!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Spending Mother's Day at the Walt Disney World Resort sounds practically perfect in every way!  You are a lucky lady, and I am sure that you and your family are going to make magical memories that you will treasure for yEARs to come!  It would be my pleasure to help you plan a Mother's Day meal that will add a little extra pixie dust to your special day.

    If you're looking for an unforgettable Mother's Day brunch, look no further than California Grill.  The decadent food and breathtaking views at California Grill make it the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.  If you're looking for something a bit more low-key for brunch, the Grand Floridian Cafe is a hidden gem.  

    If you would prefer to plan a delicious dinner on Mother's Day, you really cannot go wrong with any of Walt Disney World Resort's signature dining experiences.  If you're looking for a fun, family-style dinner, 'Ohana is one of my family's favorites.  Dinner shows such as Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue or Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show can also be a great option for a special celebration.  A character meal could also be a fun way to make memories on Mother's Day.  Why not be treated like a princess at Cinderella's Royal Table?

    No matter where you decide to dine on Mother's Day, be sure to book a reservation.  Walt Disney World Resort dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance.  I would also recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as it gets closer to Mother's Day to see if any special Mother's Day dining events are planned.  You can then modify your dining reservations if need be.

    If your husband is looking for a special Mother's Day surprise for you, be sure to point him in the direction of Disney Floral & Gifts or have him take a look at the Enchanting Extras Collection.  You might also want to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips on celebrating Mom the Disney way.

    Wishing you a magical Mother's Day!
