    I was wondering which restaurant you would recommend more: Garden Grill or Coral Reef? Kids are 5 & 7. We are also planning Chef Mickey & likely Crystal Palace for character meals. Kids are a bit picky. We don't mind a bit loud. Thanks! Love this

    Hi Brian,

    My vote is for Garden Grill.  I know you're already planning a couple of character dining experiences, but this one seems much more relaxed to me.  Since the characters come to your table, and the meal is pre-plated, there isn't the running around and chaos that is often associated with character dining.  Plus, this is the only restaurant where Chip and Dale make an appearance.

    As far as the food goes.  It's served family style.  Your server will bring out a platter of adult options and a platter of kid food.  Everyone at the table is free to choose from either platter.  If there is something you particularly like, simply ask for more.  When they bring you more food, you'll only be given what you request.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes.
