    What would be recommend for two boys 7 & 10 for dining? We will actually be in all parks for 8 days and we are going to do Downtown the day before and after the park days, so we could use 10 different meal ideas. They are not interested in Character Di

    Hello, Benjamin! Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel with your excellent question about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort! There are so many wonderful dining options in the theme parks and beyond. You did not specify what types of food that your sons enjoy eating, but I will suggest a few of my family's favorites to help you get started. Most of the restaurants offer typical child favorites, so even if your boys aren't particularly adventurous eaters, they should still be able to find something that appeals to them at each location.

    At Downtown Disney, my family and I love to visit Earl of Sandwich and Planet Hollywood. Your boys may also enjoy dining with the dinosaurs at T-REX, too.

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you may enjoy dining at Flame Tree Barbecue or Restaurantosaurus. Both of these dining locations offer really delicious foods and a laid-back environment.

    If you're looking to add even more adventure to your family's dining choices, there's no better place than Epcot's World Showcase. Epcot favorites for my family include La Cantina de San Angel, Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, and Teppan Edo.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has a really neat Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, so you can enjoy a little bit of entertainment with your meal. Pizza Planet is themed like the pizza arcade from Toy Story, and is a great place to grab a quick lunch, as well.

    Magic Kingdom Park offers some of the best themed restaurants. My family enjoys dining at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, and Be Our Guest Restaurant - you may even be able to dine in the Beast's forbidden West Wing! Reservations are highly recommended for this dining experience, and can be made 180 days in advance of your visit.

    I hope that you have a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation, Benjamin! If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
