    Hi Panel! This may be an odd question, but do the table restaurants have paper & crayons for kids to color while waiting for the meal? Just wondering if it's something I will have to bring to keep DD(4) occupied. Thanks!

    Hi Shannan

    Most of the table service restaurants at Walt Disney World do have a supply of paper and crayons on hand. However, I have personally run into situations where the restaurant was temporarily out of crayons, leaving the kids with nothing to do. 

    When kids were in their preschool and early elementary years, I always had some table time diversions (such as crayons) in my bag whenever we were visiting a restaurant, at Disney World and elsewhere. I am definitely a "be prepared" gal. If you do bring crayons with you, I would encourage you to keep them in a plastic zip top bag in your purse, rather than just a cardboard box. I've had experience with leaving crayons in a box in the stroller in the Florida sun and returned to find them a melts mess.

    For more ideas about keep kids occupied during vacation meal times, you may want to head over to the independent website Search there for an article called, "Disney Food for Families: Ideas for Successful Table Time with Kids." 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
