    What are your favorite table service restaraunts in the World (parks and/or resorts)? We will be visiting in August for 10 days with our 3 children (ages 6,4,and 2) and I would love your suggestions.

    Your kids are at great ages for a trip to Disney, and you'll have so much fun!

    We opt for a lot of character meals with our kids.  They usually offer all you care to eat food and lots of fun for the kids, making them a great value in my book.  I'm not sure if you have sons or daughters (or both) but we always take our girls to the Princess breakfast in Epcot at Akershus.  The characters vary but it's always several princesses (around 6) and my girls look forward to this every trip.  We also enjoy Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary Resort (breakfast or dinner) and 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian (breakfast with Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Pooh and Tigger or dinner with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine and the two stepsisters - they are very campy and fun even for adults).  On our last visit we did the Play & Dine at Hollywood & Vine in the Hollywood Studios, where the kids got to meet and dance with Leo and June from the Little Einsteins, and Jo-Jo and Goliath from Jo-Jo's Circus.  That was a big hit!

    For non-character dining we make it a point to visit O'Hana in the Polynesian for dinner.  They offer music and games for kids (coconut races, hula hoop contests, etc), good food, and many tables offer a great view of the Magic Kingdom.  A dinner reservation timed right can get you a beautiful view of the Wishes fireworks.  We also enjoy the Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge, as it's another good fun and good fun restaurant.  If you dine there be prepared for the whole family to play along!
