    I am trying to line up my Disney dinning reservations so that I am ready to book when my date becomes available. can I be assisted with the best options to choose for my 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter? This is their 1st time to Disney. Please help!

    Hi Shalanda, and welcome back to planDisney!

    Look at you! I love that you are planning ahead and it is a great idea to have a list of options readily available when the time comes for you to book your dining experiences. It looks like you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the coming months, so your 60-day window is approaching soon!

    Best options for the little ones? My first favorite is any of the character dining options like Chef Mickey's located in Disney's Contemporary Resort or Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios or Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera for breakfast at Disney's Riviera Resort, or Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. These restaurants and experiences will create some beautiful memories for your children. If you would like other options that are not character dining experiences, try restaurants with a theme like Space 220 Restaurant and Coral Reef Restaurant located at EPCOT. There is so much to see with both restaurants while you wait for your meal that it is sure to spark some fantastic conversations. 

    To be honest, you can not go wrong with any of the restaurants within The Walt Disney World Resort. We are here if you need us before your arrival.

    Have a magical 1st time at Disney World!
