    If traveling w/ 4 boys ages 1, 3, 4, 7 is Cali Grill worth the 2 table credits? Thinking Whispering Canyon in it's place? Cali would mean we pay out of pocket for another meal. Doing others like Le Cellier, brown derby, and yachtsman. Res open 9/11...thx

    California Grill offers a wonderful dining experience for guests, Amy.  I've had the pleasure of eating there a number of times--once with my four children, and many other times without them.  While children are certainly welcome to dine in most Walt Disney World restaurants, some of the finer dining experiences can be a bit stuffy for them.  Considering the very young age of your boys, I would venture to guess that they'd likely enjoy Whispering Canyon Cafe much, much more.  Whispering Canyon Cafe offers a very casual (and totally fun!) atmosphere that children get a kick out of.  That's not to say that you aren't welcome to take your family to California Grill if you'd rather; you most certainly are.  Based on my personal experience with the two restaurants, though, I truly think you'd enjoy California Grill a lot more if you saved it either for a date night, or for when your boys are a touch older.  I hope that helps!

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
