    Hi Kirsten,I would like some recommendations on restaurants. Character Meals, Casual dinning as well as quick service dinning. We will probably be dinning at mostly casual restaurants since our son will only be 15 months at the time of our visit. Thank You

    Hi Krista!

    I'd love to share some dining recommendations with you. You'll definitely find that your tastes and needs will change as your son grows up - so we'll start with what will suit your young family best for his first visit. Be sure to begin making your Disney Dining Reservations Online as soon as you reach 180 days from your trip!

    The Character Dining experiences I think your little guy would enjoy most include:
    - Crystal Palace for any meal of the day (I prefer breakfast or dinner) with Winnie the Pooh and Friends
    - Hollywood & Vine for Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at breakfast
    - Chef Mickey's for breakfast or dinner

    My Casual 'Family Dining' favourites for dinner include:
    - Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at Disney's Hollywood Studios
    - Via Napoli in Epcot's Italy
    - Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot's Future World
    - Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney (great after a day at Animal Kingdom Park)
    - 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort (great complement to a Magic Kingdom day)

    Some top picks for Quick Service dining for a great lunch or midday snack:
    - Flame Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom
    - Casey's Corner at Magic Kingdom
    - Be Our Guest at Magic Kingdom
    - Sunshine Seasons Food Court in Epcot's Future World - inside The Land Pavilion
    - ABC Commissary at Hollywood Studios

    If you'd like additional recommendations for great coffees, treats and more, please feel free to write me back any time Krista. I'd love to hear from you again. Wishing you a simply Magical time planning your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World!
