    Hi Joel! Because of your own experiences with your children at WDW would appreciate advice on these reservations with 21/2 gson. GardenGrillD, PlazaL,CrystalPalaceD, WhisperingCanyonD,Chef MickeysB, Hollywood&VineLTuskerHouseB,RainforestD,LeCellier,Oha

    Hi, Arlie! I'm always happy to talk about myself and my experiences. Thanks for the softball.

    With two little biscuits, our best dining experiences (read: meals where our food doesn't get cold and/or our kids don't proclaim they're "done" within 5 seconds of sitting down for a meal) are character meals avec buffets.

    Why? The characters provide ongoing entertainment. Plus, their natural rounds through a restaurant incentivize our kids to sit tight and wait for another character to come around. When the kids get antsy, well... make a trip to the buffet and get more food. It's a repeatable process that rocks.

    Our favorite places that follow this format are Crystal Palace with Pooh and Friends, Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom and Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary.

    I'd definitely recommend working in a nice sit down dinner or two too. Le Cellier is a good time. The pretzel bread prior to the meal is enough to get an A+ in both my boys' books.

    Another spot that I didn't see on your list is Biergarten. It's paradise by the liter.
