    Hi Jayna!

    I'm so glad that you popped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a request for some dining recommendations! I could basically talk about 'Dining at Disney' all day long ... so you've come to the right place!

    I've been enjoying dining with my own kids since they were babies and toddlers (they're now a tween and a teen) - and there have been some stand-out favourites over the years that please the whole family every time.

    For character dining, my favourites include:
    ~ 'Ohana breakfast with Lilo & Stitch along with Mickey in his fabulous Hawaiian shirt (great on a Magic Kingdom day)
    ~ Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine (perfect for a day at Hollywood Studios)

    At Epcot, a couple of options that will delight the whole family include:
    ~ Via Napoli for the best pizza in all of Walt Disney World
    ~ Coral Reef where you'll be mesmerized and entertained while you dine next to floor-to-ceiling aquariums

    A few other great dining options that are fun for the kids include Whispering Canyon Cafe in Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Reservations at Disney Dining restaurants do fill up quickly in advance, so be sure to make your reservations online right away or call a Cast Member for assistance at (407) WDW-DINE.

    If you have additional questions about your visit or would like casual dining recommendations for lunch or snacks around the parks, please don't hesitate to write me back! I'd love to hear from you again Jayna!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time celebrating your family's birthdays at Walt Disney World!
