    Will be visiting 7/2013 & staying @ POR, thinking of dining @ Boatwrights dh, Is this a good choice? Also considering Chefs De France. Have 3 kids ages (10,7,5) What are your thoughts? Not sure if we should try La Hacienda instead?

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations on your summer trip to Walt Disney World! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, is an excellent choice for your family. The location is fantastic, the amenities are superb and the atmosphere is just great. It's definitely amongst my favourites.

    Boatwright's is a great choice for a casual, family dinner on a day that you're calling it an early day, or relaxing at your resort. For adults, there are some fabulous and authentically New Orleans style meals, while the kids menu has standby favourites to please young palates.

    If you've never eaten at Chefs de France, and your children have seen the Disney movie Ratatouille, then I'd definitely recommend it. A tiny and amazing audio-animatronic Remy will visit you while you dine, creating a very unique meal! Cuisine here is French, meaning that many dishes are quite rich and heavy with cheeses and cream sauces. If this isn't your taste in dining, or if your kids aren't interested in Remy, I'd consider one of the many other dining possibilities around World Showcase as an alternative.

    La Hacienda de San Angel is another great choice, sure to please the whole family with a great, casual menu. My family's long-time favourites at Epcot include Teppan Edo in Japan for a real 'show' at dinner time, or on the more casual end, we just love the superb, authentic pizzas and past dishes created at Via Napoli in Italy.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Michelle.
    I absolutely love dining with my family all around Walt Disney World. If you have additional dining questions, feel free to send them my way! I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical vacation!
