    Hello- We have booked our first trip to disney May29-June5. We will be traveling with a 2 and 5 yr old. We are staying at the Polynesian and have included the dining plan in our package. What's some good restaurants to choose? Thanks

    Hi Pamela!

    This is a great question.  I love Kona Cafe and Ohana at the Polynesian.  I especially enjoy Kona Cafe for breakfast and Ohana for dinner.  Other restaurants nearby on the monorail that I recommend are:
    • California Grill in the Contemporary
    • Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary
    • 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian

    The California Grill is more geared towards adults but the other two are definitely geared towards the whole family.  I also love the Whispering Canyon Cafe for families; it is located in the Wilderness Lodge and you can get there by taking a monorail to the Contemporary and then taking a boat to the Wilderness Lodge.

    Other great places on property for families include breakfast at Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater in Disney's Hollywood Studios, Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and the Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
