    I need to book 5 restaurants for our family. My kids are 8 and 9yrs old. We added the Disney Dining Plan and some restaurants are already booked. I haven't been to Disney in 18 years. Any suggestions? We have 1 table meal daily.

    Hi Christy!

    Welcome back to Walt Disney World! The beauty of dining at Walt Disney World is that almost all restaurants are child friendly. So if you don't get your first choice, don't be afraid to try a different restaurant. Below are some of my children's favorite restaurants from the theme parks:

    Magic Kingdom

    • Be Our Guest Restaurant
    • Crystal Palace
    • Cinderella's Royal Table
    • Tony's Town Square
    • Liberty Tree Tavern


    • Coral Reef Restaurant
    • Garden Grill
    • Le Cellier
    • Biergarten Restaurant
    • Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria
    • Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

    Animal Kingdom

    • Tusker House Restaurant
    • Rainforest Cafe
    • Yak & Yeti Restaurant

    Hollywood Studios

    • Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant
    • 50's Prime Time Cafe
    • Hollywood & Vine
    • Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano

    In addition there are numerous other convenient table service restaurants located at Downtown Disney and many of the Resort Hotels. Sometimes it is easier to acquire reservations at the non-theme park locations. Another benefit of dining outside of the theme parks is that you do not need to use a park ticket in order to dine there.

    A very good resource that contains menus and listings of the different restaurants located at Walt Disney World is AllEars.Net. It might be helpful to peruse their menus to see what might appeal to your family.

    I hope this information is helpful and you find some reservations that appeal to your family. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to write back. We love to help!
