    Hello! We only have 1 night available for a dining reservation for our upcoming trip, due to prior engangements with friends. Can you reccommend 1 "must do" restaurant that would be lots of fun for my 4 yr-old?

    Hi, Kirsten!  There are so very many wonderful restaurants at Walt Disney World!  If you think your four year old would be into the characters, the one restaurant my girls consistently ask for is Chef Mickey's.  This is a fun character meal, and a buffet, so they like not only getting to see some of their favorite characters, but they love having the option to pick and choose from the buffet.  Chef Mickey's has music and guest interaction, and it's a lot of fun.

    If you don't think characters are a good idea (and for my oldest, they were not until she was about six), check out 'Ohana for dinner at the Polynesian or Whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge.  Both restaurants have good food and interactive activities for the children.

    Have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World!
