    This will be our third visit as a family and the first to use the dining plan. We have made reservations at Chef' Mickey's, Rainforest Cafe', Sci-fi theater and Akershus. We need one more table service choice, but are having a hard time choosin

    Hi, Tiffany!  I have a similar problem every time I visit Walt Disney World.  There are so many amazing and interesting dining experiences, I never have enough time to do all of them that I want to do.

    For a family, you might want to try Whispering Canyon at the Wilderness Lodge.  This is such a fun dining experience, and you never know what might happen while you are eating.  On my last visit, my cell phone rang, and our server grabbed it from the table and had a nice conversation with my oldest daughter at home about how it was impolite to talk at the dinner table.  And be careful if you ask for ketchup!  You may end up with more than you bargained for.  It's all in great fun, and you can indicate whether or not you want to participate in the shenanigans.

    An often overlooked restaurant with really delicious food is Olivia's at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  It's tucked out of the way, and is truly a hidden gem.  It features the flavors of the Florida Keys, with a really great conch chowder among the delectable options.

    Boma and Sanaa, both at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are at the top of our list of restaurants.  Sanaa has a bread service that the kids love - different breads and dips that they can try and use fingers to eat.  And even my very picky stepdad adores the variety at the buffet at Boma.  YUM!

    We also love Prime Time 50s Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and the atmosphere at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom can't be beaten.  

    Good luck choosing the one that works best!
