    1st time visit with my 6 yr old daughter (princess) in Feb/09. Have deluxe dining plan. Which restaurants are a must? Have made most reservations but want to amke sure I haven't missed something important.

    My family has a list of must-do restaurants that we, well, must do, each and every time we visit WDW.  We also enjoy trying new restaurants during each of our trips.  Every once in awhile one of the new finds makes it to our must-do list so you can imagine why we keep having to take longer and longer vacations to fit in all of our must-dos!  Here is a peek at our most current list:

    Teppan Edo, Garden Grill, & Le Cellier at Epcot, Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge, 'Ohana at the Polynesian, Liberty Tree Tavern at Magic Kingdom, and the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness.

    Since you have a little princess to see to, I highly recommend that you attempt to get reservations at either Cinderella's Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom or the storybook breakfast in Norway at Epcot.  I consider them must-do's for all little princesses.  If reservations prove hard to obtain, consider a meal at Chef Mickey instead; it is a quintessential character dining experience for all of Mickey's younger friends!

    I'd also suggest a trip to Jiko as it has recently replaced Artist Point as my favorite WDW restaurant.  I don't consider it a must-do because I think it's more enjoyable as a date night option than with children, but if you have the opportunity to dine there don't pass it up! 

    Bon appetit!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
