    Kara- Can you give me some tips on some of your favorite restraunts? I am traveling with my two sons, age 3 and 7, who are somewhat picky. Thanks!

    Hello, Kelly,

    Dining at WDW is nearly an attraction in and of itself, and there are so many great options that I'm happy to share with you a sampling of my favorites (TS will stand for Table Service while CS will stand for Counter Service):

    Magic Kingdom:  Crystal Palace (TS) for character dining (we like to make reservations BEFORE the park opens for great family photos) while my sons insist upon eating at Casey's Corner (CS) for a hot dog and fries every single trip. I'm anxious to try Be Our Guest and Gaston's Tavern, which recently just opened.

    Epcot: Via Napoli (TS) has delicious pizza and pasta. Sunshine Seasons (CS) offers a huge variety of selections and choices. 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Both 50's Prime Time Cafe (TS) and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre (TS) are family favorites because of theming.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom: Yak & Yeti (TS) and Pizzafari (TS)

    With limited space I focused on theme park dining; but if you'd like to look at more options, there are many, many others from the resorts that I'm happy to write about, too, if you'd like.
