    Hi Melisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sounds like you have some fantastic dining plans for your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! The kids' meals are still, in most cases, decent sized portions for my girls and they are 13-years old. We typically order adult meals for them now at table-service restaurants because of their age. Our favorite kids' meal options and portion sizes are at table-service restaurants like 50's Prime Time Café in Disney's Hollywood Studios. There, our girls love Goofy's Salmon. I will say that the kids' meal portions at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge were on the smaller side, perhaps because we must remain vigilant and ready to move quickly should the First Order appear!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant, Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, and Coral Reef Restaurant are all quite lovely. Currently, only Be Our Guest Restaurant has order-ahead as an option for breakfast and lunch. Although guests can order-ahead at Be Our Guest Restaurant up to 30 days in advance, definitely do so prior to the day of your visit. There are a host of other restaurants that do participate in Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering. Review the list of participating locations to see if there are any restaurants that you plan to visit on the list and always double-check prior to your visit since there could be updates!

    Since we typically do one of the Disney Dining Plans, we always make reservations at table-service restaurants and have come to enjoy taking the time to relax during a meal, especially if we are visiting in the summer months. The air-conditioning provides a welcome break.

    Melisa, continue reviewing your restaurant options and make advanced dining reservations, especially for character meals!

    Magic and memories,
