    I am going to WDW over my spring break with 4 of my friends. It will be my 22nd birthday while I am there. What restaurant recommendations do you have for us that would be a lot of fun but not too expensive?

    Hi, Katie!  I posed this question to my nearly 20 year old daughter, and she quickly recommended Raglan Road in Downtown Disney.  She loves it there, and with nightly entertainment, there's usually a good, fun crowd at the pub.  The portions are generous, so when she and her friends go, they are usually sharing meals.

    Another suggestion if you want something a little less noisy (when the entertainment gets going, it can be a bit louder at Raglan Road), she thought you might want to check out Sanaa.  This restaurant, located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village, overlooks the animals on the savannah, and they have quite a few dishes that are samplers of other flavors on their menu.  This is another very shareable spot.

    My daughter also recommends the Biergarten at EPCOT, which has a dinner show and can be great fun; or perhaps you can request a table at the new La Hacienda at EPCOT to see Illuminations while you finish your meal.

    There are so many options when it comes to fun dining.  You might even want to do something totally out there and do the Sci Fi Dine In at Disney's Hollywood Studios!  You sit in "cars" while you watch old drive in movie clips on the big screen.

    Wherever you choose, I hope your birthday is magical!
