    I am planning our first vacation to WDW 5/19 - 5/27 it will be my DS 9 and myself. We are staying at POFQ and have the Deluxe Dinning plan. I have a few restaurants on our list for reservations but was wondering if there were don't miss ones for DS age?

    Sounds like a great vacation you have planned Susan! My daughter is nine years old as well, so here are her top picks:
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. Be prepared, it's loud, but she has a fabulous time riding a pony through the restaurant and doing the hokeypokey. Make sure he asks for ketchup, and if he's a milkshake fan, they have every flavour under the sun, including bubblegum!
    - Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary for a character buffet.
    - Raglan Road Pub in Downtown Disney. She loves the kids shrimp plate!
    - Sci-fi Dine in at the Hollywood Studios, where you can eat in your car and watch old movie clips!
    - Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian, where you can watch the fireworks, and my daughter loves the Smores.
    - Le Cellier in the Canadian Pavillion at Epcot. Again, she was all about the desserts, but the mushroom filet is my fave!
    - Anwhere on the Boardwalk. We've eaten at the Cape May Cafe and Spoodles, which we enjoyed, but will try something new next time. We make sure to spend a night on the Boardwalk every trip!

    Hope this helps!
