    My son will be celebrating his 14th Birthday during our trip to Disney. What Disney Restaurant would you suggest best to celebrate at??

    Hi, Alyssa! Happy birthday to your teenager...WDW is a cool place to celebrate! My son is 15 and here are some of his choices:

    • Rainforest Cafe or T-Rex Cafe -- cool atmospheres with large quantities of food plus amazing desserts
    • Planet Hollywood -- a place to see and be seen
    • Boma -- adventuresome eaters will love this bountiful, African buffet -- seeing this resort from the inside is an adventure in and of itself!
    • Chef Mickey's -- not to be scoffed by teens, this restaurant features the Big Cheese Himself with Goofy cooking up a bit of fun, too. The dinner buffet is yummy, and there is a primo arcade on the same level of The Contemporary. (Plus, it's a convenient respite after a day at the Magic Kingdom.)
    • Teppan Edo -- a Japanese steakhouse at Epcot's World Showcase that combines good food and entertainment all rolled into one, and they really know how to make (and make fun of) a birthday
    • California Grill -- sans little kids, this a great option to make the big birthday boy feel grown up and there's no beating this view of the MK fireworks

    Congratulations on raising your teen thus far and for celebrating at  the most magical place on Earth. We often say that nothing melts our teens back into the little kids we once knew quite like the magic of WDW! Have a beautiful Alabama day and a wonderful vacation!
