    The Castle, Mickeys BBQ & HDDMR or somewhere else~where would be the best Thanksgiving meal? Is it possible to eat enough to justify deluxe dining? We are going with DS 8,7 & 5 & DD's twins: 2. Will the kids want to sit down at least twice per

    Hi Alexis!

    Ohh...great question!  All of your choices are wonderful, and I myself would have a difficult time choosing....

    For me, it would be between eating at Cinderella's Royal Table and Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.  Dining in "The Castle" is such a magical experience for the kids (and adults alike) that I think it would be a great memory for all there.  Hoop-Dee-Doo is such a wonderful and entertaining time, that I just couldn't say no to that either!!  I would say, that with 2 year olds in the party, the Hoop-Dee-Doo might be a little over-stimulating for them (if they are prone to that)--I would find it challenging to keep my 16 month old entertained enough to make it through the courses there as they are brought at pre-determined times (per the stage show), not necessarily as you'd like them. 

    My vote:  Cinderella's Royal Table!  (but, either way...BOOK now, as availability is probably already limited!)

    Deluxe Dining with little ones can be tricky as well.  Mine do best if we just stick to one sit-down meal per day, as they tend to get overly tired of sitting waiting for food.  It also depends on if your little ones have big appetites...most of the time my boys (and even my husband and I) can share meals at a Counter Service Restaurant and be completely satisfied--we find the portion sizes to be on the larger size. 

    Have a magical vacation!
