    Thanks for your help with the ADR ?'s. Just wondering if there are any resteraunts that are a don't miss? We have two kids 4 and 2. Any help with that would be great. Thanks for all of you insight you all do a great job.

    Hi, Stephanie!  I went to one of my resident restaurant experts on this one - my eight year old.  I asked her to remember back to when she was a kid and tell me what restaurants were her favorite.

    Hands down, her don't miss is Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom - and I have to agree, it is one of my favorite character meals.  You'll be meeting Pooh and friends as of right now at the Crystal Palace, and the food is served buffet style.  One of the best things about the buffet is the kids section - it's lower, so the kids can see what there is to eat, and you'll find kid favorites here that can be enjoyed by grown ups as well.  The children can also choose from the grown up buffet, and there are plenty of choices, desserts, salads - very nice buffet.

    My girls all love the 50s Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  We began going there when my oldest was about four, and she loved it when her dad was reprimanded for having his elbows on the tables and not finishing his vegetables. 

    You might also want to try one of the two Rainforest Cafe restaurants - at Animal Kingdom or Downtown Disney.  The theming at the Rainforest is incredible.  T-Rex, also at Downtown Disney, is another restaurant that takes theming to a whole new level.

    For a grown up meal, try Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It's our favorite restaurant anywhere at Walt Disney World!
