    Within all the parks, which restauants are the best in food and entertainment for a 4 year old girl and a 6 year old boy?

    Hi Dimitra,

    I would love to share some of my favorite restaurants in the theme parks with you!

    At Magic Kingdom Park, I love Cinderella's Royal Table, especially for breakfast. I enjoy the food, and your four-year-old daughter will likely enjoy meeting the princesses! Another favorite of ours at Magic Kingdom Park is the Plaza Restaurant. This small, soda-shop like restaurant does not have character dining, but has delicious sandwiches, salads, and ice cream. Sometimes the characters from Main Street, U.S.A., such as the Mayor, will stop by.

    At Epcot, your children may enjoy The Garden Grill. This dinner-only restaurant features Chip 'n Dale's Harvest Feast. You can meet characters as the restaurant slowly rotates and your view into the Land pavilion changes. This restaurant often features produce grown right at the Land pavilion greenhouses! If your children are adventurous eaters, try one of the many delicious restaurants in the World Showcase, such as Restaurant Marrakesh in Morocco.

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, try Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood and Vine. This fun, upbeat meal includes characters from Disney Junior such as Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. The characters sometimes even dance with your children. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, consider Tusker House Restaurant, where you will find a buffet with both African and American fare. I love this because everyone can try new cuisine, with more traditional American fare available if little ones don't care for the African cuisine. Tusker House Restaurant features Donald's Dining Safari at breakfast and lunch, where you can meet characters such as Donald and Daisy Duck in their safari gear.

    Those are a few of my favorite places for dining in the parks for good food and entertainment, Dimitra. Be aware that characters at any meals are subject to change at any time. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
