    My husband and I are traveling to WDW with our 6 yr old and 3 yr old twins. Can you recommend some restaurants that are fun for kids, but not character meals? We plan to do character meals, but are looking for different options as well. Thanks!

    Hi Sarah!

    I just love dining at Disney! There are experiences here that not only provide great meals but a fun and entertaining atmosphere too!

    The first two restaurants that immediately jump into my mind are The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater & the 50's Prime Time Cafe. Both restaurants are located in Hollywood Studios. At the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater be sure to request to sit in a car. From your "vehicle" you'll be able to watch clips of really good, bad sci-fi while enjoying your meal. While dining at the 50's Prime Time Cafe you'll be transported to Mom's kitchen, complete with cousins who might just scold you for bad manners!

    At Downtown Disney, two great dining options are T-Rex and Rainforest Cafe. Both of these restaurants offer immersive dining experiences complete with moving animals - dinosaurs, gorillas and more. A second Rainforest Cafe location is at the entrance to Animal Kingdom.

    If you're looking for something a little more exotic, be sure to check out Restaurant Marrakesh at the Morocco Pavillon in Epcot. Maybe you'll even be selected to take part in some Belly Dancing lessons! Another great option in Epcot is the Biergarten in Germany. A fun show accompanies your buffet style meal here.

    And last, but not least, another suggestion is the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Ft. Wilderness Resort and Campground. The show is a ton of laughs and I don't think anyone can help buy smile as they leave the show!

    Hope this helps you decide! I'm sure it will be a tough decision!
