    Hi. I just <3 the panel. I just have a couple ?. Which is better for DS (15 & 8)...PT 50's or Sci-Fi? Do you need ADR for these(for lunch)? Hard to choose btn CM and Tusker. Pain to leave park and come back again(tho DM loves Goofy) Your opinion.

    Hi, Lindsey!  First, I absolutely recommend that you try to get advanced dining reservations for either the 50's Prime Time Cafe or the Sci-Fi Dine In.  Both restaurants are popular, and if you are going during a time when Walt Disney World is offering a free dining promotion, it can be virtually impossible to get in either restaurant. 

    I think for boys that age, they would probably think the Sci-Fi Dine In was a pretty cool dining experience.  My kids love sitting in the cars and they enjoy watching the movie clips.  In my opinion, the food is just so-so, but my kids eat burgers and other kid friendly foods, and those are just fine there.

    As far as Chef Mickey's or Tusker House, that is a tough choice.  We love Chef Mickey's though, and we'd probably choose to go there.  If you want, make a late evening dinner reservation there, spend the full day at Animal Kingdom, then you won't have to worry about leaving and coming back!

    Have a great trip!
