    This is second trip to Disney with my two boys. They were pretty young last time. This time they are 4.5 and 6.5 years old. I am looking for eating suggestions. No character meals.. been there and done that. Just good food, nice atmosphere kid friendly

    Hi Jenna!  I bet your boys are really excited to be returning to Walt Disney World.   I know they are going have a blast making new memories with you!  I just returned a few weeks ago with my 4 year-old and he loves telling everyone he meets all about his adventures at Disney.   Disney Dining has so many delicious meal options for your family,  I have a few suggestions of some great non-character dining spots your whole family can enjoy.

    Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is one of my families favorites places to grab a meal at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  At this retro-themed diner, guests are able to dine under the stars in automo-booths as they watch clips of sci-fi classics. The grub is traditional All-American fare, including burgers, sandwiches, and yummy  milkshakes.  I highly recommend The Reuben Sandwich, and Fried Dill-Pickles.

    Whispering Canyon Cafe is located inside of Disney's Wilderness Lodge,  this dining establishment is full of fun, food, and zany antics from the wait staff. Your children will be entertained by many different games and activities during your meal, including hobby horse races. One note, you MUST ask your server for ketchup, and many refills on your drinks.

    My final suggestion is my all-time favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World, Flying Fish Cafe.    This is a Signature Dining location located on Disney's Boardwalk.   The restaurant is kid-friendly and has an open-air theme, so you children can watch all the fun going on in the kitchen.  My mouth is watering just thinking about the Potato Wrapped Red Snapper. 

    These are just a few of my favorites.  I would love to recommend more but I am running out of space! Please feel free to ask me additional questions, I love to help out fellow Disney-loving moms.
