    One of the kiddos in our group will be turning 13 while we r at Disney. What are top recommendations for dinner reservations for a 13 yr old boy?

    Hi Tiffany, and thanks for your question!  As the mom of three boys who range in age from 4-14, I know food and fun are their top priorities (especially on vacation).  You don't say which parks you'll be visiting during your vacation, so I've listed some of my teenager's favorite spots across Walt Disney World for you to consider.  

    Pizza is usually a crowd-pleaser and the authentic Neapolitan-style pies at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzaria at Epcot don't disappoint.  At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is themed like a '50s drive-in movie theater, complete with car-shaped tables and stars overhead, and the menu offers old-fashioned shakes, flavored Cokes and burgers.  For sports fans, you can score lots of points with your teenager by dining at ESPN Club on Boardwalk, or you can combine bowling and dinner at Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney.  Another option for a birthday dinner he'll never forget is to skip the entree altogether and head over to Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at Disney's Beach Club Resort and dive into the family-sized Kitchen Sink sundae.

    I hope your group has a great vacation and happy birthday celebration. If you have any other questions to help plan your trip, please let us know.
