    Hi Doug! I have 4 kids ages 20, 6 and 4 and we are going to Orlando from Dec 22 to Jan 1/14. We will visit MK, Univ. and EPCOT. Which theme restaurant should I book for the little ones? Is there a less crowded day? We have 3 girls and 1 boy (4 yrs) thanks


    The crowd levels when you arrive will be very busy, the busiest it ever gets at Walt Disney World. But after New Year's Eve the crowds drop quickly. Basically, the later in your vacation you go, the lighter the crowds.

    As for recommendations on themed restaurants, I would go with the following;

    Magic Kingdom: Rather than dining in the park, I think most of the best choices are a monorail or boat ride away. I would go to any of these (with my preferred meals in parentheses);
    Whispering Canyon Cafe (breakfast or dinner)
    'Ohana (dinner)
    1900 Park Fare (breakfast or dinner)
    Cinderella's Royal Table (in park, breakfast, lunch, or dinner)

    Biergarten (dinner)
    La Hacienda de San Angel (lunch or dinner)

    Hollywood Studios:
    50s Prime Time Cafe (lunch or dinner)
    Sci-Fi Dine In (lunch or dinner)

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
