    I am trying to book the best restaurants for our Disney experience. Please help me choose the best for a 3 years old princess. Thanks!!!

    Greetings Maribel!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question! You have asked about one of my favorite topics...."dining around the world!" There are so many amazing and fun restaurants to choose from when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I would highly recommend booking a Character Dining Experience, in which you will be greeted table-side by several Disney Characters. My family has created so many magical memories at Character DIning Experiences. We have also found them to be a great way to get autographs and photos with the Disney Characters without having to stand in line. My very favorite Character Dining Experience is Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort which features the "Fab 5."  I would also suggest dining with the Disney Princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park or Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. Please know that Characters are subject to change.

    The enchanting Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park offers guests the option of a quick-service lunch or a more formal "sit-down" dinner. This popular new dining location, inside Beast's castle, features a French-inspired menu and accepts Advanced DIning Reservations during dinner hours, but not lunch. 

    T-REX Cafe at Downtown Disney is one of my family's favorite dining locations due to its prehistoric themed setting, life-size animatronic animals, and diverse menu. Other family favorites that kids of all ages will enjoy include 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort and Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot. 

    Guests may begin booking Advanced DIning Reservations for table-service meals 180 days in advance by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or by going online. Please don't hesitate to visit me again if you have any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Maribel!

    Bon Appétit,
