    We want 2 take kids 2 dinner somewhere magical Friday when we arrive in Orlando 2 surprise them tell them we r going 2 Disney in morning, where should we go? Tried cal grill and chef Mickey- no resv. Checked Disney spring but don’t c any character dining

    Hello Susan and thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel such a fun question about your upcoming magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort. 
    Wow! Your special surprise dinner plans for your dear family sound so precious and I'm certainly going to try my very best to provide some suggestions to help make them as pixie dusted as possible.  
    Perhaps you'd wish to consider a rootin' tootin' fun time by attending Mickey's Backyard BBQ for dinner! This all-you-care-to-enjoy BBQ buffet Dinner Show is hosted by the Big Cheese himself and all young cowboys & cowgals are encouraged to get-up & join-in with all the dancing shenanigans lead by a live toe-tapping country & western band. 
    My family just loves dining at 'Ohana and although this Polynesian styled restaurant isn't a character meal at dinner time it does benefit from a super magical view of Cinderella Castle, especially at night time when all the twinkling lights are a-glow. 
    For a really swashbuckling alternative to dinner why not embark on a Pirates & Pals Fireworks Dessert Voyage which sets sail on the Seven Seas Lagoon for a special viewing of Happily Ever After and includes character meet and greets with Captain Hook and Mr Smee plus of course a delicious selection of sweet treats, confections and soft drinks. 
    I'm sure what ever is finally decided upon your darling family will enjoy their magical surprise trip to Walt Disney World Resort.
