    We have two boys ages 5 and 2. We will have the dining plan for this trip (first time!) and I need some help choosing a non-character TS restaurant. We have our character meals booked, but we'd like to try something else besides that too. Advice?

    Hi Mary!!!  Greetings to a fellow Georgian!!

    Congratulations on your first trip with the Disney Dining Plan!!  You will absolutely love having the Dining Plan!!!

    I would love to recommend some non-character Table Service Restaurants that my family has enjoyed over the past few years!  

    The first restaurant I would recommend is the 50's Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You will feel like you have been transported back to the 50's and are dining in Mom's old fashioned kitchen.  I dare you to put your elbows on the table or not finish your plate!!!

    Another restaurant that is in such a unique environment is the Coral Reef Restaurant located at the Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion in Epcot.  This restaurant provides beautiful views of the Seas with Nemo and Friends Aquarium and will definitely keep your two boys interested while they dine!!

    The last restaurant I would recommend is 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort!  This is my favorite resort at all of Walt Disney World!!  It offers a wonderful menu in a fun, festive atmosphere.  One thing I always love to do is make my Advance Dining Reservation for about 30 minutes before Wishes is scheduled to start at the Magic Kingdom.  The lights are dimmed and the Wishes music is piped into the restaurant and you are able to have a beautiful view of these spectacular fireworks while you dine!!

    I hope that these three restaurants give you a start on looking at non-character Table Service Restaurants.  Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical day!!
