    We are staying at Wilderness Lodge but won't be getting in until mid afternoon. 2 children (6 n 3)..i thougth we would go straight to MK for the rest of the day. Is there a great resterauant that we should make reservations at? great steaks??

    Hi, Jodi! I like the way you plan...I always want to get to the MK as soon as possible on my first day at WDW! If you are arriving at Wilderness Lodge around mid-afternoon, I would recommend timing your day's meals so that you can eat an early dinner there before you head to MK.  One of my favorite restaurants in all of the WDW property is Artist Point, and they feature steaks, seafood and game.  If the kids are too anxious to enjoy a leisurely sit-down meal, I would recommend Whispering Canyon Cafe located right in the heart of the Wilderness Lodge.  It's definitely a louder, faster atmosphere, and they also serve steaks and seafood.  If you would like to check out the various restaurants at the MK, you're welcome to review them at MK Dining.  However, on the first day, my kids usually do better if they are fed well before they reach the parks.  Once you've decided where to eat, you'll want to make an Advanced Dining Reservation.  Then, check out the MK Calendar for the day you arrive to see park hours, special events and if there happens to be Extra Magic Hours that evening!  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
