    Hi moms! I am looking for some table service dining options for our preteen boys...what would you recommend? Thanks!

    Hi Ashley!

    As a mom to 3 growing boys myself, I know how important good food (and lots of it) can be, especially on vacation.  You don't mention which parks you'll be visiting during your trip, so I've listed some options across property for your crew to consider.

    When I ask my kids what they want to eat, "pizza" is usually the answer.  Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzaria at Epcot is one of my family's favorites, not just for the authentic pies, but also for fantastic pasta and delicious desserts.

    Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios serves up burgers, old-fashioned shakes and flavored Cokes in a '50s drive-in movie theater setting.  You can dine at your car-shaped table while campy old sci-fi movie clips play on the big screen.

    Sports enthusiasts will love ESPN Club at Disney's Boardwalk.  The menu offers much more than the usual bar there are over 100 TVs for your watching enjoyment.

    You can combine food and fun at Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney.  I love the sushi and cocktails here, but my kids go for the pizza and burgers.

    If you're looking for something on the faster side, some of my boys' favorites are Casey's Corner, Pizza Planet Arcade and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop (for dessert to-go), 

    Take a look at the menus online and see what sounds good to your group.  No matter what restaurants you choose, I'd definitely recommend making your dining reservations 180 days in advance for those table-service locations.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
