    Hi Janet,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love to discuss dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort and am so happy to see that you are making advanced dining reservations!

    We typically visit Chef Mickey's and California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The characters at Chef Mickey's are delightful and the view from California Grill is AMAZING. At Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, we love the characters for breakfast and dinner at 1900 Park Fare. Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner is a lot of fun - on our first visit with our girls, one of them was super shy with Prince Charming. She later said that she did not want Cinderella to be jealous!

    In Magic Kingdom, we adore Be Our Guest Restaurant for dinner. Just be aware that dinner is changing to an enhanced prix fixe dining experience. Our girls' favorite breakfast experience at Magic Kingdom is The Crystal Palace. On our last visit, we had a window table with a gorgeous view of Cinderella Castle. At Disney's Wilderness Lodge, you may venture into Whispering Canyon Cafe. The food was hearty and good on our last visit. We have also done the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package with Tony's Town Square Restaurant and have dined like royalty on several occasions at Cinderella's Royal Table. Take a look at the Magic Kingdom Dining List for additional quick-service and table-service options.

    Janet, I trust you will have a delicious dining experience during your visit!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
