    Would like to know what are the best places to plan family meals. I have 2 diabetic kids. This will be our first time there. I want them to have a very rememberable vacation.

    Hi Alecia!

    Congratulations on your family's First Trip to Walt Disney World!
    How exciting for all of you!

    Some of my family's favourite dining experiences include:
    - Tony's Town Square at Magic Kingdom
    - Via Napoli at Epcot
    - Mama Melrose at Hollywood Studios
    - 'Ohana dinner at the Polynesian Resort
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge Resort

    If you'd like character dining recommendations also, please write back and let know who your children's favourite characters are!

    When making your family's Disney Dining Reservations Online, be sure to indicate your special needs in the required screen. This will remind the Host or Hostess as well as your Server at each Table Service Dining location that you'll be wanting to have a visit with the chef, who will be able to guide you in advising the best options on the menu for your children, or advising you on what special alternative dishes may be able to be provided.

    For added peace of mind, I'd definitely recommend that you contact a Cast Member at Special Diets. You'll receive a reply email and your questions will be addressed by experts who know precisely how to guide you. Click here to contact a Special Diets Cast Member or email

    In your email, mention your children's diabetes and request information about some of the best options available in the parks for Quick Service Dining and Snack/Treat options. Be sure to contact them 14 days prior to your arrival and also advise of your Table Service or Character Meal dining plans in your email.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question!
    I hope to hear from you again soon.

    Wishing you and your family a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Alecia!
