    Planning our first trip with our daughters (4 1/2 and 5 1/2) in March. Thinkng about staying at the Contemporary 4 easy access to MK and Epcot...wondering about dining, definitely want to do a character bfast at Cinderella's Cast, any other suggestions???

    Hi Elizabeth!

    It sounds like you are well on your way to planning a great trip! The Contemporary Resort is located in one of the best places on Walt Disney World property! You're just a few minutes walk to the Magic Kingdom!

    Personally, I think one of the best character dining experiences you can have at Walt Disney World is located right in the Contemporary: Chef Mickey's. If you're up for an additional character meal you may want to consider this great option where you can dine with Mickey & his friends.

    Over in Animal Kingdom, one of our family's favorites is the Yak & Yeti. We love to schedule a late lunch here, so that we can have a few minutes to rest and enjoy great food before heading out to tackle the rest of the park.

    Epcot is home to my son's favorite restaurant: Teppan Edo. If you enjoy Japanese hibachi-style dining, this is a must do!

    And, for some cheesy fun, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater features unique dining tables that are cars. In your "car" you can enjoy your meal while checking out some clips of really, really cheesy sci-fi.

    Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
