    I am planning a trip to WDW in May with my 5 year old son and husband. I would like some suggestions for "must see" dining.


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel!

    Character Dining holds the most fun for children when it comes to meals and the most "must-sees". To get the most out of it, base your dining experiences on which Disney characters your son loves the most.

    If it's Winnie the Pooh, you'll want to go to Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom.  If it's Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and the gang, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary should be at the top of your list.  Lilo & Stitch host 'Ohana's breakfast buffet, and Donald, Daisy and Goofy star at Tusker House in Animal Kingdom!  And don't forget Chip and Dale at the Garden Grill at Epcot.  The locations are numerous!

    For one of the best sites to help you locate a character and where they'll dine, visit Then click on DINING. Then restaurant info. And character dining locations.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
