    Hi Helen!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    It looks like you are looking for some recommendations for dinner outside of the parks.  Since you are staying in the Contemporary Resort, I'm going to recommend some good places to dine within easy reach of that resort. 

    The Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilder Lodge is a great place for families and is a lot of fun for dinner.  You can easily get there by boat from the Contemporary.  Another good place is Trail's End at Fort Wilderness; again you can get there by boat from the Contemporary.  Both are top notch places for families and Trail's End is one of the best values in all of Walt Disney World.

    On the monorail line, I would recommend Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary Resort, Ohana in the Polynesian, and 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian.  Kona in the Polynesian is also a great place for dinner.  For a fancy meal, you should consider the California Grill on top of the Contemporary Resort.

    Children can definitely share entrees (and so can parents) except for at buffets or Disney Character Dining Experiences where each person has to pay a set charge regardless of how much he or she eats.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
