    I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. Is the Sci-Fi Diner a good place for us to bring the kids? Or should they older like -- 8 and 10 years old? Thanks for your help

    It depends on your kids, Christine.  The Sci-Fi Drive-In is dark inside.  I've also found it to be relatively quiet, though not in a stuffy kind of way.  If you think your children might not do well in the dimly-lit room you might want to dine elsewhere.  Another consideration is that diners are--usually--seated in "cars" on bench seats with a small counter-like tabletop in front where the plates are placed.  I do believe I've seen high chairs, though.

    Honestly, I think the four-year-old would probably be fine.  My son did just fine at that age.  My hesitation would be whether the two-year-old would be uncomfortable dining in the dark.  He or she might actually do just fine--especially with the distraction of the giant screen and movie clips to watch.  I would base my decision on how you feel your youngest would do with the dark room.  Good luck with your decision!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
