    Hi this is probably mentioned somewhere and I just didn't see it....what is the best option for dinner for a group of 10 people...6 adults, 3 six year olds and 1 three year old? Also, one of my children has Autism so preferably something not super fussy

    Hi Jennifer, 

    I am not sure what theme park you are thinking about dining in so I will give you a couple suggestions.   My family loves the Crystal Palace in the Magic KIngdom which you will see Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore.  The buffet is fabulous, and there is always something for everyone to eat.  I think all of the children (and adults) in your party will love Pooh and his friends.  At Epcot, I would suggest the Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion.  This is a German buffet with American food as well.  The desserts are fantastic. You will feel like you are eating in a German Beer garden complete with authentic entertainment.  At Hollywood Studios, I would recommend the 50's Prime Time Cafe.  This is a themed restaurant that turns back the clock to the 1950s and has old-fashioned American comfort food.  It is such a fun dining experience.  Tusker House restaurant at the Animal Kingdom offers family buffets with African Flavors but lots of great food for the kids.  We also like Restaurantosaurus and Pizzafari for good Quick Service options.  At Downtown Disney, I would recommend T-Rex, A Prehistoric Family Adventure.  The dinosaur theming is spectacular and the food is amazing.   Be sure to save room for the Chocolate Extinction dessert!  The kids will love it!  At the Polynesian Resort, my favorite restaurant is Ohana.  This is a family style dinner with Polynesian influences and includes wonderful grilled meats over an oak fire.  Finally, 1900 Park Fare is at the Grand Floridian.  This dinner is also a buffet and features Cinderella, Prince Charming, the Sisters, and the Fairy Godmother.  The meal is fabulous and the character greeting is so much fun.  Whatever meal you choose, I know that it will be filled with magic!
