Mom And Daughter Resort Room

    We will be going to Disney this summer. My boys ages will be barely 6, twins that will be barely 4, and a daughter that will be about 20 months. We'd like to do a character dining, but want to pick the best one for their ages and attention span. HELP.

    With a group a small children such as yours, I always think the character meals that offer buffets are the most easy to manage. Here's why:

    -Since everyone in the restaurant is getting up and walking around, it won't be a distraction to anyone if your kids need to get up and move a bit.
    -There are more food choices to suit any palate.
    -The kids can see what the food is before they decide whether to have it on their plate. (My picky eater daughter would freak if she saw a speck of green on her food, with a buffet we could avoid this catastrophe.)
    -There is no need to wait patiently for your food to arrive. You just place your drink order with your server and then you walk up to get your food. Hungry kids can eat right away.

    Some of my family's favorite character buffets are the Chef Mickey meal in the Contemporary resort (Mickey and pals), the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom (Pooh and friends), and the Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club resort (Goofy, Chip and Dale).

    Hope this gives you some ideas.
