    We are going to WDW for a week in July. I can reserve dining next week. Right now we have a character breakfast (company has booked this already), and lunch at the Beast's Castle on our list. Where else should we go (we have a 4 year old daughter)?

    Dear Emily,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are already having fun planning out your Advanced Dining Reservations for your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You have great choices so far, and I am assuming that with a week to stay and enjoy, that you will be visiting all four Parks and might want to make reservations in other locations as well!

    For Disney's Animal Kingdom, I recommend PIzzafari for a quick-service meal and then Tusker House for a character dining experience. Both are really delicious and the theming is great!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, I have several favorites but with a 4 year-old I recommend 50's Prime Time Cafe for a homestyle sit-down meal with hilarious servers, and then ABC Commissary for a meal on the run. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Salad with Chicken there! The vinaigrette is super yum.

    Finally, at Epcot, again, there are way too many great places to choose just one or two, but if you have a princess aficionado, you might try Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for a wonderful character experience, and then Coral Reef Restaurant for a one-of-a-kind "dinner by the sea." 

    Hope that you have a magical (and delicious) time!
