    Hi! I'm planning on taking my two 16 year old daughters and two of their friends to Walt Disney World in April and I was wondering what are some good, unique restaurants in the parks that you think teenagers would enjoy?

    Okay, first of all, you are the Mom equivalent of a rock star!  I have one 17 year old daughter, and felt lucky to survive her being 16.  For you to be doing 16 twice, and still have the energy to bring friends, makes you my Mom hero!

    I checked with my 17 year old to make sure I was picking the best places for you to take the girls to, and she had quite a list!  It sounds like no matter where you take them, they'll have fun!  Her best suggestions were a character meal at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom.  In her words, you are never to old for a character meal, and everybody loves Eeyore!  At EPCOT, she suggested Teppan Edo, and I could not agree more!  We just had a wonderful meal there in December.  Her second favorite EPCOT restaurant is Restaurant Marrakesh.  The food is delicious and the belly dancer is mesmerizing!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, my teenager loves the Sci-Fi Dine In.  At the Sci-Fi, the girls will dine in convertibles while watching some old time drive in movie clips.  When we go to Animal Kingdom, we really enjoy eating at the Rainforest Cafe.  The theme in this restaurant is amazing!

    Let the girls browse the menus located at to see if there are meals that they think they wouldn't want to miss.  Having them involved in the planning is a sure fire way to make sure they have the trip they'll always remember!
