    We will be visiting disney with 4 older grand kids and one 10 year old grandchild in December can you tell me when there is free dining and where are best places for quick service meals. I'm sure free dining won't be then

    Hi Debra,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your grandchildren is going to be such a wonderful experience; you're going to make some very special memories with them! 

    At this time, there are no special (free) Disney Dining Plan offers. Free Dining is offered periodically so I would check the Walt Disney World Resort website or the Disney Parks Blog frequently for updates and any special offer information.

    There are lots of great Quick-Service Dining locations to choose from but here are my family's top picks when we want a yummy meal without needing an Advanced Dining Reservation:

    Magic Kingdom Park:
    Pinocchio Village Haus ~ The Caprese Flatbread there is delicious, and if you grab a seat upstairs, you can enjoy a gorgeous view of Prince Charming Regal Carrousel and Cinderella Castle. 
    Sleepy Hollow ~ The Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich is a "must-eat". 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    Min and Bill's Dockside Diner ~ The Slow-roasted beef and the Foot Long Chili Cheese Hot Dog that are currently on the menu are so good and the portions are big enough to share. 

    Sunshine Seasons ~ The wide variety of meal options that are offered; Soups, Salads, Sandwiches, Asian fare, and wood-fired entrées, make this a great spot for a delicious lunch or dinner. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park:
    Flame Tree Barbecue ~ The Pulled Pork Sandwich is amazing!
    Restaurantosaurus ~ Burgers, hot dogs, and much more are served at this dino-themed restaurant. 

    I hope these suggestions help. Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
