    Moms Panel: Thank You for all the Help! I want to surprise my mom for a special adult only dinner on her BDAY!Need Childcare (No in room sitter) & location to eat! TS Fun not Fancy, Great Food & Several Options Please! Already eating Lunch at 50s

    Hi Jennifer,

    Sounds like a great way to celebrate your mom's birthday!  As for child care, several of the resorts have Children's Activity Centers where you can bring your children ages 4-12 for an evening out.  They provide games, movies, crafts and even dinner.

    Teppen Edo in Epcot is quite fun if you like hibachi food?  I would follow that up with a stroll to the Boardwalk and drinks at Jellyrolls, a dueling piano bar.  Biergarten is also a fun dining experience in Epcot.

    Would she be interested in character dining?  Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian features characters from the classic movie.  The Stepsisters are a riot!

    Downtown Disney might be your best bet: House of Blues or Paradiso 37 are both great spots. 

    Then there's always Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge. 

    Keep in mind that even the "fancy" restaurants at Walt Disney World are not "stuffy".  Dinner at California Grill to watch the fireworks, or an evening spent at Jiko are wonderful dining experiences.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
