    We are visiting DW for the 1st time 8/16-8/21. I was wondering which restaurants are the best to eat @ for dinner so I can make reservations. We have a party of 8 and have the dining plan.

    Hi Michelle!

    There are many dining experiences available and it would be hard to recommend one without having more information on your group.  Are you looking for a character experience?  A reservation at a signature restaurant?  In a particular park or location?

    Some of my family favorites are 'Ohana, Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare, Crystal Palace and Garden Grill.  If I'm with my mom friends (I have a couple family members who are picky eaters), I prefer restaurants I've tried recently such as Jiko, Bistro de Paris.

    What I'd like to suggest is for you to use the Disney dining tool that is available on  There are filters on the left you can use to narrow down your search.  If you come up with some specific questions, please ask us.

    Also, 8/16 is the beginning of the free dining promotion - one of the most popular packages Disney offers.  You are well within your 90 day window to make reservations and I'd also recommend you try to make your reservations as soon as possible.  The most popular restaurants and times fill up quickly.

    I hope this helps get you started.  Diane  :)
