    Hi again Sara! I think all of us here at the Moms Panel obsess about our Disney trip planning too, so you're definitely not alone! 

    You've picked some great restaurants, and you'll see a big assortment of characters, which will save you lots of time in the parks! The breakfast buffet at 1900 Park Fare has some unique items that you don't see on other buffets, such as strawberry soup and lobster eggs benedict, and it features Alice and the Mad Hatter, two characters you don't see frequently elsewhere. I love the Cape May breakfast because the food is tasty, and it's generally less crowded than Chef Mickey's, which I've found means more character interaction.

    My family really loves the lunch at Yak & Yeti, and the atmosphere at 50s Prime Time is so much fun. (Just keep your elbows off the table so you don't get in trouble!) Crystal Palace has some of the tastiest buffet food at Walt Disney World. T-Rex's audio-animatronic dinosaurs make it a fun restaurant for little ones, but this restaurant doesn't accept the Disney Dining Plan so you'll have to pay out-of-pocket for this meal.

    Dining inside the castle at Cinderella's Royal Table is so magical! Boma has wonderful and unusual African-inspired dishes. Cape May is great for seafood-lovers, and Chef Mickey's has such a fun, energetic environment. I love the Parmesan Mashed Potatoes and my kids adore the make-your-own-sundae bar there! Coral Reef is a beautiful restaurant, but to be honest, I haven't had the best experiences with the food there or at Big River Grille & Brewing.

    If you have room on your schedule for more restaurants, a few of my family's favorites for dinner are 'Ohana, Jiko, and the California Grill. We love lunch at Via Napoli, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, and Le Cellier. If your kids like the movie Ratatouille, consider lunch at Chefs de France where Remy makes surprise visits to the table.

    Come visit me again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
