    Staying at FWL with kids 6, 4 and 2, on DDP. Want to eat at resort on the first day to minimize time spent in transit. I have ADR for Chef MIckey's on another day. Should we do Mickey's Backyard or Whispering Canyon and save the extra table svc credit?

    Hi Heather,

    You are going to love Chef Mickey's. The food is amazing and rubbing elbows with Mickey and his friends will make the meal even more special!

    I would suggest Whispering Canyon Cafe simply because it is one of my favorite dining locations. It is a knee-slappin', hoot-hollerin' good time. The cast members truly make it one of the more unique experiences on property. They are entertaining and the food is bountiful. The banana bread french toast at breakfast is absolutely amazing and the all-you-care-to-enjoy family platters will leave you quite satisfied! Be ready to stomp your feet and join in on the fun as they have stick horse races for the kids and napkin-wavin' sing-a-longs! It is a great way to get your day started with lots of energy or a fun and enjoyable way to make an end of the day memory!

    This is not to say that your kids wouldn't just love Mickey's Backyard BBQ. In fact, my family is going this summer on our next trip. It, too, is a fantastic evening filled with music and lively entertainment, along with Mickey. However, since you are going to see him and his pals at Chef Mickey's, I think you would really enjoy Whispering Canyon Cafe as another exciting alternative.

    Whatever you decide, I know you will make tons of memories with your kids. You will be amazed by the magic that will fill their eyes around every corner. Be sure to take a moment to just simply watch them taking in all the wonder that Walt Disney World has to offer.
