    I feel like I have figured out all the character dining venues. Can you recommend a few other dining locations that have good food & kids (age 4&8)/adults can enjoy? My husband and I are somewhat foodies and our kids are not picky eaters.

    Hi there Rebecca!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What a fun question and one that pertains to a favorite topic...dining at Walt Disney World! My favorite dining location that is fun for both kids and adults alike and that also serves fantastic food is 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort. 'Ohana features a tropical setting where Polynesian-inspired dishes are served family-style and is an all-you-care-to-eat table-service restaurant. The famous 'Ohana Bread Pudding served a la mode with Bananas Foster Sauce is my favorite dessert in all of Walt Disney World!  At Epcot, you can "dine around the world" in the World Showcase. My personal favorites include Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion, Les Chefs de France in the France Pavilion, Via Napoli in the Italy Pavilion and Le Cellier Steakhouse, which is located in the Canada Pavilion. Jiko - The Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an amazing Signature Restaurant that serves unique and flavorful dishes in a beautiful setting. I have taken my four children to Jiko - The Cooking Place several times now and can honestly say it never disappoints!  At Magic Kingdom Park, don't miss the enchanting Be Our Guest Restaurant, which is a quick-service dining location at lunch and a table-service location at dinner. Guests may begin booking Advanced Dining Reservations for table-service meals 180 days in advance by calling Disney DIning at (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. I hope this information is helpful! Please don't hesitate to write me back if you would like any additional dining recommendations or have any other vacation planning questions that I can assist you with. Best wishes for a magical trip, Rebecca!

    Bon Appétit,
