    We are taking our daughters (10 & 6) to WDW in December 08. Which dining experiences should we do? We'll be on the dining plan and are staying at the Campgrounds. We've done the Hoop Dee Doo and enjoyed it. What else is a MUST see?

    Of course any of the character meals are great fun. Chef Mickey's is a classic Disney experience. And if you like dinner shows, then the Spirit of Aloha meal at the Polynesian could be for you.

    I personally am fond of the Disney meals that involve a lot of interaction with you servers in a playful way. These include the Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge and the 50s Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios. These to me are very uniquely Disney experiences that could only happen with the input of the fabulous and fun Disney cast members.

    The Whispering Canyon has BBQ, a boisterous cowboy theme, with periodic hobby horse races throughout the dining room. There are numerous jokes and routines that the servers have developed over the years. As an example of some of the shenanigans there, I'll tell you something that happened to my unsuspecting husband. He is a Diet Coke addict. On one visit to the WCC, he asked our server for a "very large" Diet Coke. Well, let's just say that one of our kids could have bathed in that soda :-)

    The Prime Time Cafe has classic 50s decor and lots of American comfort food . The servers play the role of your family. "Mom" will tell you to keep you elbows of the table and mind your manners. And don't think you won't be "punished" if you don't comply ;-)

    These are some of my family's can't miss favorites. I hope you enjoy them too.
