    We purchased the Disney Dining Plan for our trip in October and need to make our reservations to some of the restaurants, but aren't sure which ones to visit. Which restaurants would you recommend as must see while at Disney World? Kids ages are 7,9,10.

    Hi Stacy,

    I'm not sure whether you have boys or girls but I have taken my 2 girls when they were between 7 and 12 and these are their favourite Disney restaurants.

    • Coral Reef in Epcot - They love eating their food underneath the sea.
    • Teppan Edo in Epcot - The Japanese food is delicious and they really enjoy seeing the chef cook their food.
    • Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom - A fun meal with the Winnie the Pooh characters, it also has delicious buffet food.
    • Sci Fi at Disney's Hollywood Studios - They love sitting in a replica open topped car whilst watching old movie clips like at a drive in movie theatre.
    • 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian - Dinner here is a delicious buffet with Cinderella and her family, the Step-sisters are just hilarious and my children laugh so much here!
    • Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian - They had their first taste of lobster and steak here, need I say more!

    There are many more delicious restaurants in Disney, you can see a list by clicking HERE, I would advise you to choose a mix of character and non-character meals for the best dining experience. When you have chosen where you'd like to dine you can book either online via the restaurants page or by calling 407-939-3463, I would recommend you do this as soon as possible as the restaurants do get booked very quickly.

    Hope that helps and you have a great trip,
