    What shows and/or restaurants do you recommend for a single mom and her 10 year old son? He certainly doesn't want to attend any princess dinners! He would kill me! Thank you for your suggestions.


    I asked my boys for a few of their recommendations....

    • Ohana, Polynesian Resort:  Their #1 recommendation....If he's not afraid to "ham-it-up," he'll enjoy the coconut races and limbo--and you'll both enjoy the all-you-can-eat skewers that are brought to the table!
    • Teppan Edo, Epcot:  Let the chef's do the entertaining as your food's cooked in front of you. You'll eat with other diners and get to share your experience.
    • T-Rex, Downtown Disney:  Dine with the dinosaurs!  Each room in the restaurant is themed, and if he's a dinosaur fan, you'll become a hero!
    • Sci-Fi Dinner Theatre, Hollywood Studios:  A car serves as your dinner booth while you eat and enjoy ol' movie flicks--and not the romantic kind.  My husband suggests the reuben!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
