    I am planning a trip for our family. We have 9 adults and 9 kids. HELP.... I need advice. We want to stay at art of animation for sure but are open to other options. Also we have tons of girls and only 4 boys any ideas of boy things to do for dinners?

    Hi, Robbin!

    Planning a trip with lots of family members is one of my specialties. Not to worry! You can do this! :-) 

    First, your choice of Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a great choice for a large group, especially if you'd like to take advantage of their fantastically-themed (and accommodating) Family Suites.

    Regarding boy-friendly dinner options, there are so many, I'll do my best to squeeze our favorites in here. First, at Epcot, we love Coral Reef Restaurant (huge aquarium), The Garden Grill Restaurant (Chip 'n' Dale), Le Cellier Steakhouse (Yum. Just...yum.) Les Chefs de France (you might spot Chef Remy) and Teppan Edo (table side cooking.)

    At Magic Kingdom, try The Crystal Palace (Pooh and Pals, great buffet), Tony's Town Square Restaurant (delicious) or hop onto the monorail and dine with Mickey himself at Chef Mickey's, just a quick ride away at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Additional monorail-accessible restaurants include 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (Supercalifragilistic Breakfast includes the hilarious Mad Hatter), Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort (Goofy and friends, great buffet), 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort and (Lilo & Stitch at  'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast).

    Donald and friends can be found at Donald's Dining Safari Breakfast and Donald's Safari Lunch at Tusker House, located in Dinsey's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Don't miss T-REX, A Prehistoric Family Adventure Restaurant at Downtown Disney, either. Great food and fun for kids, too.

    Send more questions as you think of them; I'd love to help you plan your great trip for the whole family!
