    Hi! Looking for char dining recommendations. Last time we did CM, CRT, CP, H&V, TH and GG. This time we want to do CM, CP, AH, and TH but will have 3 more table service meals to use. Time of visit DDs will be 3 & 5 and DS will be 7mo. You guys are

    Hi, Katie! With this next trip, you will have the chance to experience almost all of the character meals available at WDW! The only other ones I would suggest is Lilo & Stitch's Best Friends' Breakfast at 'Ohana at The Polynesian.  They serve the food family style (which is easier for families with small children), and in addition to the characters, they also play some fun games and activities.  In addition, my family likes the atmosphere, breakfast buffet and characters at Cape May Cafe at The Beach Club. I love to see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto in their beach attire!

    Other fun character meals are the ones at 1900 Park Fare at The Grand Floridian and at Garden Grove Restaurant at The Swan.  I also wanted to encourage you to sit down for a few meals at restaurants without characters, too.  My children (both now and when they were little) were fascinated by the aquarium at The Coral Reef at Epcot's Living Seas Pavilion. They also were mesmerized by the entertaining aspects of Hollywood Studios' 50's Primetime Cafe and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. They love the rip-roarin' good times and wonderful food at Whispering Canyon Cafe at The Wilderness Lodge, and we all make sure we visit The Rainforest Cafe (Animal Kingdom or Downtown Disney) or T-Rex Cafe (Downtown Disney) each time we're at WDW.  There's also something to be said for a restaurant with simply good food where the family can sit down and look each other in the eyes to share the memories of the day. (We call that a chance to "decompress.")

    I hope that has given you a glimpse of the world of dining available to you for your next trip. Come back if you have more questions. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
