    Planning our first family trip to WDW, we have the DDP. What are your top five table service restuarants? I'm having such a hard time narrowing it down.

    Hi Laura!

    It is SO hard to decide between restaurants, but I'll give it my best shot!

    First, I have to say that for our family a Character meal is an absolute must-do! Not only do you get to have a great meal but you'll also have a great time interacting with characters without lines! Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom is my favorite for breakfast. Pooh & his friends will keep you compan yhere A top notch dinner can be had at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary serves up an incredible buffet!

    After you pick out your character meal, here are some more ideas:
    • At Disney's Hollywood Studios, enjoy a meal at 50's Prime Time Cafe or Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater.
    • Animal Kingdom is home to another great character meal: Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House. For a quieter meal with great food, Yak & Yeti is a great option too.
    • And, finally, Epcot is home to a great many wonderful restaurants. Canada's steakhouse, Le Cellier, that gets rave reviews from just about everyone who visits (as of March 2011, it will be 1 credit for lunch/2 for dinner). If you'd like a little show with your meal, be sure to check out the hibachi dining of Teppan Edo in Japan. Of course, if pizza is your thing, you really can't go wrong with Via Napoli either!
