    Traveling in Sept. w/ 2 yr. and 5 yr. old using free DDP. Can you suggest a resturaunt in each of the parks to make dining reservations for table service meals?

    Hi Amy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip!  Here are my "top table service picks" for children your kids' ages in each of the parks:

    Hollywood Studios:
     - Play n Dine at Hollywood and Vine:  this is a character meal (breakfast or lunch) featuring friends from Playhouse Disney and some very talented cast members singing songs from many of the shows.  It's a huge hit with the pre-school crowd.
    -Sci-Fi DIne in Theater:  you sit in 1950s-style covertibles while watching old sci-fi shorts and cartoons.  Kids usually love the novelty of this restaurant.

    -Akershus Storybook Dining:  this is a great spot if you have princess lovers in your family as some of Disney's finest make appearances.
    -Coral Reef: while you dine on great seafood (there are non-seafood choices as well) your kids will be amazed by the huge floor to ceiling tanks filled with exotic sea life (including sharks!) 

    Animal Kingdom:
    -Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House: would be my pick for the perfect way to start an Animal Kingdom Day.  I recommend visiting this park early in the morning, as the animals (probably much like your two year old) like to take a siesta in the afternoon.  Breakfast is a good choice here, therefore.

    Magic Kingdom:
    Crystal Palace: is a whimsical glass atrium, and the perfect backdrop to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with Winnie the Pooh and his pals from the Hundred Acre Woods.

    I hope some of my suggestions help you plan a magical vacation!
