    Going to WDW Feb 3-10 for the first time and trying to plan which park to go to on what day based on crowd. Also to save money we plan to only eat dinner out. What are your favorite eating places at each park? Kids 9, 6, and 4.

    Hello Katherine!

    Usually during the first two weeks of February all Disney parks feature low to moderate crowd levels on every day.  Therefore, I suggest planning your visits based on parks hours - choose parks with longest park hours.  Walt Disney World Calendar is the perfect tool to know park hours and event times.

    Walt Disney World features a great selection of restaurants at all parks and resorts and though some can be expensive, many offer good food at a good price.

    Magic Kingdom features great counter service restaurants like Casey's Corner and Columbia Harbor House.  For a really good table service dinner, on a budget, I prefer Tony's Town Square Restaurant.  If your budget allows it, The Crystal Palace features a great buffet and awesome Disney Characters.  Though not my personal favorite, many guests loves to dine at Liberty Tree Tavern.

    Inside Animal Kingdom all restaurants close between 5:00 and 8:00 pm - at park closing hour.  Flame Tree Barbecue is my favorite restaurant at Animal Kingdom, as it features the most beautiful and fun outdoor dining area in Disney.  When visiting this park on days with early closing hours, you can visit Rainforest Cafe or visit Animal Kingdom Lodge or Downtown Disney for your dinner.

    Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano is another of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World.  Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is another great option at Hollywood Studios.

    When visiting Epcot my family loves to try different meals from all the counter service restaurants as we walk around the world.  From the many options we always get to stop at Japan, Mexico and France.

    Glad to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
